Congrats to Ben Lee (15 Thunder

We are very proud of you Ben!
“This CNT program will be instructed
by lead coaches Mike Hebert and Bill Neville, who are both retired
college head coaches. Both Hebert and Neville have extensive
coaching experience not only at the collegiate level, but also at
the international level. Neville has served as head coach for both
the men’s and women’s U.S. National Teams as well as assistant on
the U.S. Men’s National Team. Hebert has contributed to the U.S.
Women’s National Team as an assistant coach.
Nicki Holmes, assistant women’s volleyball coach at UCF, will serve
as the program manager. Other program coaches are: Ashley Allen
(assistant women’s coach at Nicholls State University), Ray Gooden
(head women’s coach at Northern Illinois University), Linda
Hampton-Keith (assistant women’s coach at Arizona State University),
Ben Lee (Arizona Storm Volleyball Club), Marci Sanders (head women’s
coach at University of Texas-Dallas) and Jay Van Vark (assistant
women’s coach at Cal State University-San Marcos).
For the third consecutive year, USA Volleyball will have its U.S.
Collegiate National Team program (formerly known as U.S. Women’s
National A2 Team) represented at the USAV Girls’ Junior National
“USA Volleyball is again looking forward to assembling this great
crop of athletes for the College National Team program in
Minneapolis,” USA Volleyball Senior Director Tom Pingel said. “It’s
always beneficial to the program to get this group in the gym during
the summer, as well as get them in front of everyone at the GJNC.”
