Evan has been involved with volleyball since he was 10, with school as well as club teams. Since the end of high school he has been active in the volleyball community as both a player in the EVA men's league, and as a coach for 9 years running at a local Edmonton high school. He has had his fair share of provincial and national tournaments as a player, and as a coach and helped the high school team win multiple city championships. This is Evan's 2nd year coaching with SAS Volleyball Club and he is excited to return as a coach for this club.
