Coach Clouston's Bio
 

You will know Katie Clouston from camps, clinics and private lessons from her exuberant energy and contagious positively! Katie is the most recent asst. director of DIG, joining the DIG family in March 2021 full-time, but has been a familiar face at Sportsplex for many years. Katie started coaching with DIG at the academy level in 2017 and has since moved up to coaching the club level teams. Katie, a Chicago native, started playing club volleyball herself in 6th grade and played all the way through high school, so she is extremely familiar with what it takes to win and play competitive volleyball. 

 

Katie instills confidence in her athletes through encouraging them constantly to strive for their best and constantly reviewing personal and team goals. As a daughter of a parent in education for 35 years, she learned lessons about teaching and mentoring from her mom. 

 

Favorite core value at DIG 

Katie’s favorite core value is DESIRE. “Desire is what fuels an athlete to put their wants into action. Desire goes hand in hand with competitiveness and the ability, regardless of the circumstance you face, to never quit. Desire keeps an athlete hungry and motivates an athlete to continue down the path for success. I find desire to be more pertinent and directly correlated to success than talent. Athletes that have the innate desire to improve are long-term goal oriented and are natural competitors. Desire helps athletes hold themselves accountable for their actions and effort put forth in training sessions, tournaments, practice, etc. At the end of the day, I want to be around athletes with the desire to progress and the desire to win.”

 

Personal 

Katie graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in public relations and Spanish and loves her sooners! In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, baking, crafting and spending time with family.
