U13 Assistant Coach: Lexi Snodgrass
Volleyball has been a constant in Lexi’s life for as long as she can remember. Back when she was in 6th grade she made the choice to try the sport for the first time. Since then she has played in both school and competitive club programs until graduating in 2017. Her final two years of high school, she was a varsity player at Selah High School. After graduating, she took on the role of being head coach for Club Selah’s U12 team. Throughout the season she learned and grew immensely which only cultivated her love for the role of coaching. That is why when she relocated to Spokane this year she just knew that she wanted to find a way to continue coaching. She can’t wait to see what this season will bring!
