Sand team adds coach

December 7th, 2012

Forgot to mention this earlier on Thursday

Scott Wong has announced the addition of assistant coach Michelle Meyer to the Rainbow Wahine staff. Meyer, a native of Santa Cruz, Calif., joins the program with nearly a decade of experience as a player and coach both on the collegiate and professional levels.

Most recently Meyer served as a youth sand volleyball coach for the Main Beach Volleyball Club in Santa Cruz, teaching both technical skills and team strategy to her players. Meyer’s association with club goes back nearly 10 years, beginning with her start in the club as a player.

Meyer also has indoor coaching experience as an assistant in 2011 for Cabrillo City College in Santa Cruz. That season Cabrillo won the conference title.
Meyer remains an active professional indoor and sand volleyball player. Last winter she played indoor volleyball abroad as a libero for Fortuna Odense Volleyball Club in Odense, Denmark. While there she also served as head coach for the club’s second division team.
Since 2006, she has competed in the California Beach Association, where she currently is ranked AAA and 56th overall.

    That poor kid in Florida is still wondering when they will announce her recent signing.

    Meyer’s name,photo and bio has actually been on the coaches page for awhile now so this isn’t new news.

      They never announce walk ons.

        She says she signed a NLI do walk-ons sign NLI’s ?

        • Sandupyourbutt December 7, 2012 at 7:09 am

          Nope but each school has invited walk ons sign a code of conduct and agreement. Maybe thats what she signed.

            Well Wong was a little busy until this week, don’t you think. Hadn’t noted that she was up earlier. UH just announced it. May have not had anything to do with it. It’s the SIDs that put out the releases.
            As for the NLI, If she hasn’t been cleared by the NCAA clearing house, they won’t put her name up.
