SAJO proudly announces that Stillwater High School Head Coach Bob Fisher and his staff are coaching in the SAJO program for the upcoming club season. The 13-1's will be coached by Mike Kim and Rick Leonard. This will be Mike's 4th season with SAJO at the 13'14's level. Varsity Assistant Coach Rick Leonard will return for his 5th season with SAJO as Mike's assistant. The 14-1's will be coached by Bob Fisher and Pat Tynen. This will be Bob's 1st season as a coach in the SAJO program. Bob has coached for many years in club volleyball, and is in his second season as the Head Coach for Stillwater High School. Pat has been a head coach the past two seasons for SAJO, and is currently the JV coach at Stillwater High School. The 14-2's will be coached by Kitty Tynen. This will be the first season for Kitty at SAJO and she is currently an assistant for the JV and Varsity teams at Stillwater High School. Kitty is also an alumni of SAHS, and was on the last Pony Volleyball State Tournament team. The 15-1's will be coached Alyssa Anderson. Alyssa has coached in the SAJO program the past two seasons under the guidance of Pat Tynen, and is currently the 9th grade coach for Stillwater High School. Melissa Brown is currently the B Squad coach at Stillwater High School, and may be coaching at the 17's level, with Rick Schmolke, if there is enough interest to field a team. Mike Zeno is currently the 9th grade B coach for Stillwater High School, and is one of the founding fathers of the SAJO program. Mike continues to be engaged in this club, and is always willing to step in to help coach as necessary. Having the Stillwater volleyball staff coaching many of the SAJO teams, and engaged in the program is important as we partner on preparing the girls of the Stillwater Area for High School volleyball, and the Stillwater way of doing things. We are excited about our 2015 SAJO coaching staff and look forward to another fun and competitive season. We will be posting the entire coaching staff on our website as soon as we have it confirmed. Additionally, you will be able to see all of the qualifications for the entire SAJO coaching staff in the coaching bios listed in the "Coaches" section.

SAJO not only develops volleyball players, we develop teammates. As a player, coach, or fan, you can have a great impact on your teammates.
A good teammate does more than work on serving, passing, and hitting - she considers the importance of being a good teammate on and off the court. As we head into the final 2 months of this season, challenge yourself to be the best teammate you can be.
1. Be trustworthy.
2. Be encouraging. Fight for and celebrate each other's successes.
3. Be honest and courageous.
4. Remember that your teammates are people too. Value your temamates for who they are.
Enjoy the rest of the season!

SAJO typically cancels practices/events when the Stillwater Area School District closes due to weather. However, we ask that parents use their discretion as to the severity of the weather and safety of travel. Please communicate to your coaches if you will miss or be late for practice.
We will continue to monitor and post updates on the website if practices or games are cancelled.
