Downstate 15 Red
Kurt Pelaccio, This will be my 13th coaching here at Downstate. I’ve coached everything from volleybees to 17’s, the past 6 years as the 15 red head coach. This is my favorite age group!!! I’ve been coaching girls sports for over 22 years including Travel softball , basketball and soccer. I have three daughters who all played at Downstate and all played college Volleyball at SUNY Oneonta. My coaching philosophy is to get the best out of each of my players, whatever their best may be. I’m not one to sit quietly on the bench but to encourage and push the girls to give it their best. I expect my players to come to practice ready to work hard, improve their skills and to become stronger and smarter players. Winning is great but improving is more important. I want a team that looks forward to coming to practice and to practice like they play. Volleyball has become such a huge part of my life ( I actually met my wife playing volleyball) and I truly enjoy coaching here. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing my girls get better as the season goes on and then seeing them play in the years ahead.
Have a great day. Kurt
