Kris Wicklund
2017 Head Coach

“I am very proud and excited to be part of KVVC.  I am blessed to be here and love what I do."

Why do I coach volleyball?

I really enjoy the strategy and skill required for the game. It is truly one of those team sports that can teach athletes a lot of life lessons. Most of all I enjoy watch the athletes progress and making a positive impact on their lives to help them grow and thrive.

Coaching Philosophy

I want to take my passion for the game, my professional experience, a healthy competitive program and use it to improve athletes to the their maximum potential. I want the athletes to learn, grow, and become a better players and to take the lessons learned from volleyball and apply them in a positive and constructive manner in all areas of their life. There is nothing more exciting than seeing people grow.
