Ruby Ellis

U17 Elevate Head Coach

This is Ruby's second year coaching for Apex, and she is eager to get started! She is currently finishing her final year at Western Washington University, double majoring in Biology and Psychology. After graduation, Ruby will work in research labs until hopefully returning to school for a Masters in Genetic Counseling. In her free time, Ruby plays lots of indoor and beach volleyball and spends time with friends and her cat Kenny!

Ruby first discovered her love for volleyball in middle school and has now been playing competitively for over a decade. Most recently, Ruby was the president of WWU Women's Club Volleyball team, leading them to win 5th in the nation at the 2019 national club competition. Ruby strongly believes that playing volleyball taught her the vitality of teamwork, introduced her to lifelong friends, and made her a more confident person.

"I'm beyond excited to begin my second-year coaching with Apex! I hope to continue to instill my love and knowledge of volleyball into this season's players."
