Danielle Palmer
Danielle PalmerCoach
Hello, my name is Danielle Palmer and I am a coach for ONE Volleyball Club. Over 17 years of playing and coaching I have been fortunate to experience many different volleyball styles and levels. Each experience has influenced and helped develop the coach I am today.  I believe that hard work, respect for yourself and others, personal accountability, and having fun makes for a great experience for the players, parents and coaches. I also believe that playing sports as a young-adult, not only builds character and confidence but also gives them a sense of accomplishment.

Joselyn MatthewsCoach

I have been playing or coaching volleyball for over 12 years. I started playing in Middle School, then High school,  then club, and went on to college with a full scholarship to play volleyball.

At Hampton University I walked on and received a scholarship after playing one year of club volleyball coached by Dave.
I played all four years D-1 volleyball in the MEAC. I was captain of the volleyball team my senior year. I played Libero 3 of my four years there.

I have coached one season of club volleyball. I really enjoyed working with the girls and sharing all the skills and lessons I’ve learned throughout the years. I am really looking forward to this season and all the talented and special girls we get to coach. 🙂
