Club Co-Director, Girls 17's
Girls Club Director
Dan O'Dell returns to Momentous Volleyball Club for the 2022-2023 club season as the Head Coach for the girls 17-1’s team. Last year, Dan's 18-1's team finished in the top 20 nationally. Two years ago, Dan's 17-1's team took 5th place in entire country in the 17U Open Division at Junior Nationals in Detroit, MI. This is the highest finish in our volleyball club's history! 17-Dan was a virtual coin flip away from earning a medal and possibly even winning the entire tournament. 17-Dan actually beat Mizuno Northern Lights 17-1, the eventual 1st place finishers, in pool play earlier in the tournament.
