OUR COACHING TEAM
In addition to our dedicated volunteers who help run our club, Easts is very fortunate to have dedicated coaches lead teams and athletes in their development and growth here at Easts.
We're proud to have some of Queensland's most successful and experienced coaches lead our programs and share their knowledge to a new generation of athletes.
Below are profiles of our current coaching staff for Easts Volleyball in 2020.
Todd Kropp is the Head Coach and Coaching Director for Easts Volleyball. Todd leads the coaching team with over 12 years of experience under his belt, ranging from coaching local school teams in Brisbane, to coaching the Queensland U17 Boys, to also coaching overseas with the Volleyball Australia Junior Mens Development Program.
Todd continues to share his knowledge and experience with the younger coaches and players in Easts and mentors their growth and development as athletes.
On top of coaching, he is still an active player for Easts Volleyball, if you don't see him on the sidelines coaching our teams, you'll definitely see him on court chasing down every ball.
Mens Head Coach / Athlete Development Director
Angus (Gus) Sullivan is in charge of Easts Strength and Conditioning Program as the Athlete Development Director and is involved with the Mens Program (Juniors/Seniors) as Head Coach. With a background in exercise and nutrition along with sports medicine, Gus' skill set is heavily suited to the task of developing our athletes in their strength and conditioning.
Gus has also worked heavily with the QLD State Program as a coach for the U17 Boys, Volleyball Queensland's Development Camps and Volleyball Australia National Youth Camps.
Like Todd, you will most likely find Gus either developing and assisting our team coaches, or on court playing volleyball.
Womens Head Coach / JDS Head Coach
In addition to being the President of Easts Volleyball, Trevor also spends his time as the head coach of the Womens Program, and the Junior Development Squad.
Trevor has been with Easts since the start of the club back in 2006 and shares his knowledge of the sport as a player, coach and referee to a new generation of athletes starting with our club.
Trevor has been involved with VQ Development Programs for a majority of his coaching career and now serves to better the athletes at Easts Volleyball.
OUR COACHING TEAM
Ably assisting our head of programs are our team coaches who look after individual teams during both trainings and games. These coaches are often your first port of call when you have a question and the coaches you'll see the most during your time at Easts Volleyball.
You'll find that most of the coaches also are involved in Easts as players for the club, don't be afraid to come say hi to them if you see them on court!
