Mountain Peak Premier Coach
Three Years Coaching Experience
HOME LIFE: Malyn is from Gilbert, AZ and is currently attending Utah State University. She has 3 sisters and 2 brothers and grew up loving anything that had to do with sports. Her family members are her best friends and going home to visit is one of her most favorite things to do. Malyn got engaged over the summer and is getting married this December - She is so excited! Her life is crazy going to school, trying to work, and planning a wedding - but she wouldn't have it any other way!
EDUCATION: Malyn is a junior at Utah State University. Her plan is to major in Business Administration and then go into Construction Management after she graduates.
VOLLEYBALL CAREER: Malyn started playing volleyball when she was in 6th grade, but started playing competitively (club) when she was in 7th grade. She played on the junior high team and then as a freshman in high school made the JV team. As a sophomore, she was on the varsity team and it was the best! She made some of her best friends playing volleyball and loved every second of practice and competing in games or tournaments. She played club with the girls from her high school until her junior year and then she left and played for AZ Storm. They made it to Nationals and placed 12th overall in their division. It was such a cool experience to play on a team that was very competitive and loved to win.
COACHING CAREER: Malyn's varsity coach hosted many camps during and after the school year and had the team coach the kids and teenagers. When she was a sophomore in high school, she coached the 8th grade competitive volleyball team at the neighboring junior high and they went undefeated all season and then won the championship! She loves watching the players progress and fall in love with the game.
WHY I COACH: "I coach because I love the game and I love helping other people fall in love with the game. I love to teach and watch the players learn and improve every practice - and I love to watch them win after all of their hard work."
