Annie Nugent

Email: [email protected]

Long-time SoCal member, Annie Nugent has been with us for over 10 years and played on our competitive travel teams from 2013-2021. She made the top team for her age group in just her third season with us and continued to be on the National team every year after as the starting setter and captain of her team. Following her high school graduation and her last season as a player for us, she immediately started coaching, and we are so happy she’s here.

She attended Mission Vista High School where she played 3 years in their program spending two years on Varsity as their starting setter. In 2019, Annie was selected as MVP of her team and named First Team All-Valley League. That same year she helped lead her team to the Valley League title providing Mission Vista their first girl’s volleyball league title in school history and an overall record of 24-10.

Currently, Annie is attending the University of Saint Katherine right here in San Marcos and is studying kinesiology while playing on their women’s volleyball team.

Her coaching style includes giving a ton of encouragement, providing so much feedback, having lots of fun, and being tough in those moments when a coach just needs to bring out the best in their players. She pushes her kids to be extremely vocal, quick on their feet, and as precise as possible with their technique.

Annie describes herself as super competitive, energetic, fun, and determined. She loves being the loudest person in the gym and is super friendly to every person who walks in the door.

Although she is young, Annie is very familiar with the game of volleyball, and her love of the game is extremely visible when she is coaching. She is always available to help you with anything and everything and will make it her priority to help you become a better volleyball player.

Michelle Gardiner

Email: [email protected]

Three words to describe Michelle are: motivated, focused and determined. She started coaching in 1990 at various programs like: Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Northern Arizona, Western Carolina, Utah State, Idaho State, Lake Superior State as well as different high schools and clubs over the decades. Her coaching accolades include: NCAA Division 1 AVCA 100+ wins club. Multiple 20+ win seasons at Western Carolina. Coach of the year in both 1990 and 1991 for the Los Padres League. Players describe her coaching style as being a very detailed fundamental coach. “I feel very strongly about solidifying strong fundamental skills as the basis to grow as a player. I love this game passionately and I try my best to pass that passion on to my players in my coaching.” Players would say she is a Coach that pushes you to be your best, has hard working practices and mixes in some fun too!

Michelle has played professionally in Switzerland, in 2 professional leagues in the USA, she spent time training with the USA Womens National Team (Both A & B teams), was an All American Outside Hitter at Cal Poly SLO, a 2 Time Cal Poly Female Athlete of the Year, Big West Conference All Region 2x and All Big West Freshman Team.

She chose to coach as SoCal because, “I absolutely love teaching and coaching. I also love the SoCal motto to BE KIND! The SoCal staff has been so welcoming to me and my daughter. It feels like a great fit.” A fun fact about Michelle is that she is 1 of (less than) 5 outside hitters to become an All American outside hitter at only 5’8 in the past 25 years of NCAA Division 1 volleyball!!
