July 27, 2015 – SoCal Volleyball Club is thrilled to announce coach Karolyn Kirby will join its staff this August. A world-renowned athlete and coach, Kirby played indoor volleyball on the USA National Team from 1983-1987, serving as captain in the 1987 Olympics.

With her breadth of experience, Kirby has been coaching club volleyball since 1997.
SoCal VBC Coaching Director Aimee Asebroek adds, “Karolyn is a volleyball icon—she’s going to be an amazing resource for our members. We’re incredibly excited to have her here.”
In addition to coaching a team, Kirby will be overseeing skills, position, and coaching clinics in the upcoming 2015-2016 club season.
