This is Chalae's second season coaching with Apex NW and she could not be more excited! She is currently the C-Team Coach at Squalicum High School. Some of her favorite volleyball memories come from playing with her high school team there. She graduated in 2018 and is now a junior at Western Washington University studying Human Services and Spanish. After playing on the Women's Club team at Western, getting involved in pageantry, and exploring other opportunities, she has decided that her heart is happiest when coaching.
She was a volleyball, basketball, and track athlete, but volleyball left the most positive impact on her life and now she wants to invest in young women who love the sport as much as she does. She believes that playing with joy and making hard work your passion are huge keys to thriving in any environment and she can't wait to instill these among other values in her players.
"I am so excited for this season with my Apex NW volleyball family and to continue aiding in the development of athletes and their love for volleyball! Triangles up!!!”
