The backbone of Flatirons Volleyball Club is the tremendous coaching staff. Many Flatirons Coaches are long term, dedicated folks who have a passion for volleyball. In addition to working full time jobs, these coaches spend their free time giving back by teaching junior girls the game of volleyball.
