Kody McCraken - Head Coach

Kody McCracken head coach boys, and 16’s beta girls

Kody’s coaching experience ranges from middle school first year players up to 18’s elite players. He is currently a player on the Seattle Sasquatch men's professional volleyball team competing in the NVA USA. He found a role as the starting opposite, filling in as a middle when needed. 

Kody’s playing experience started after high school as where he grew up in Pennsylvania did not offer much for boys volleyball. He is very excited that the players in the Vancouver area have an opportunity to start training and playing competitively at such a young age. Kody was a bicycle road racer through high school, capturing 9 state championships and 1 national title in Jr. Duatholans. As an undersized player for the league he competes in Kody attributes his strong cycling background to giving him the legs to ‘jump high, hit hard’. 

After playing D3 volleyball at Wells College Kody found his love for the game and wanted to compete at the next level. There are many opportunities for adult play, and Kody loves the culture and atmosphere of these adult tournaments. “Playing with people who just love the game, win or lose they give it their all. The opportunity to play with such a variety of players at all levels of play is what makes volleyball so special.”  

When not grinding away at the goal of capturing an overseas volleyball contract, you can find him on the golf course, or driving range. His career goal is to be a college coach and run a club, once the professional playing days are over. He is excited to share his playing experience and what it takes to maintain your body and mindset to play at a higher level with the younger athletes.
