Notes from the Coach
Hello LoneStar Family,
My name is Natalie Collier and this is my first year coaching at LoneStar. I am so excited to start this club season and get to work with these fine young ladies! I have played volleyball for about 12 years. I started out playing recreational volleyball in the 4th grade.
I began competing in club in the 8th grade and am currently competing at a high collegiate level. I played club, high school, and college volleyball as a utility player. This means I can play all three front row positions. I am currently in my junior year of college at Dallas Baptist University where I am playing volleyball and pursuing a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Childhood – 6th grade Education. If I had to describe my coaching style I would say I am very much a player’s coach. I have been and am still a player. I see things from the eyes of a player as well as the eyes of a coach.
I will encourage all of my players to always give 100% while having positive attitudes. I can’t wait for each and every girl to improve their skills, their knowledge of the game and to grow life long friendships.
