17UG High Performance Team Open Gym
Due to the success of REACH Volleyball Club during the 2022/23 Ontario Provinical Championships and in the National Volleyball Tournment, we are creating a 2nd 17UG High Performance Team.
Coach Daniel Bainard will be the coach for the team. A detailed bio for Coach Daniel is below:
Daniel is a dedicated and accomplished professional with a passion for coaching and developing athletes. Growing up in Ontario, he understood the significance of club volleyball, which fueled his passion for the sport. During his time as a varsity player at Trinity Western University, he earned All-Canadian honors twice.
With a Bachelor of Human Kinetics and a teaching degree from the University of British Columbia, Dan spent seven years in education and athletic directing before relocating with his family to explore new opportunities. Currently, he holds the position of Senior Manager (human performance specialist) in the Energy Industry, where his commitment to developing people and striving for excellence remains apparent both in the workplace and with his volleyball teams.
Since 1998, Dan has generously shared his multifaceted expertise by volunteering in early development programs for volleyball athletes in BC. His dedication to the game is evident, as he holds a NCCP level 2 coaching certification. Over the past 22 years, he has successfully coached club volleyball teams in three provinces, achieving Provincial gold in BC, Nova Scotia, and Ontario.
Dan is enthusiastic about joining REACH Volleyball Club and its community, continuing the tradition of long-term athlete development. His love for the game and commitment to nurturing young talent make him a valuable asset to any team or program he becomes a part of.
