Coach Dean Camberis

Coaching Philosophy –

My goals as a coach are to create an environment where the players can improve at their fundamental volleyball skills, as well as their life skills.  To do this requires hard work, open communication, good sportsmanship, and team work while also having a lot of fun playing the sport that we love.


Playing History-

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and began playing volleyball in 7th Grade for my Junior High team as a setter and defensive specialist.  I played all 4 years in High School (Deerfield High School) as an Outside Hitter. I moved to California in 2005 after graduating from college (University of Illinois). I began playing in adult leagues and tournaments in 2006 and have been ever since.
