Our volunteer coaches are passionate about volleyball! We're adding to our coach page, planning to display past and present coaches in alphabetical order. If you have a story about a previous SUNS coach that you'd like to share, please email it for consideration to... firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tony began coaching volleyball at an Orillia highschool in 1984. In 2006, he joined the Orillia Suns organization where he spent the next 10 years helping to grow the Suns from a 1-team club to 7 teams across multiple age divisions. Tony’s passion for the game and commitment to youth development was integral in the launch of the increasingly popular spring and summer clinics.
After retiring from teaching, Tony moved to St. Catharines in 2017 where he continues to coach and officiate in the Niagara region. His now 30+ year commitment to volleyball includes many team successes and medals, and many former players continue at the post-secondary level and beyond.
Tony is routinely praised for his knowledge of the game, officiating acumen, tireless recruitment and inspirational coaching.
