Junior Varsity Coach - Jack Stankowski

Coach Jack has been assisting with the Frontier volleyball program
since 2003.  He was a volunteer assistant for the 2003 and 2004
seasons, and was named the JV coach for the 2005 season.  His
2005 team had a record of 19-1.   After (officially) taking a year off in
2006, he returned as the JV coach in 2007 where his very young team
(6 freshman and 6 eighth graders) posted an undefeated 18-0 record.
His 2008 and 2009 teams both posted perfect 18-0 seasons.  In 2010 the
win streak of over 70 matches came to and end at the hands of DI
powerhouse Barnstable HS with a 26-28 and 23-25 loss on the road.



Middle School Coach - Kevin Pender

Coach Kevin has been involved as a player and coach for over a decade.
Kevin has experience coaching the JV boys at Agawam and was an
assistant on the boys varsity team that won the DI State Championship in

girls JV team before becoming the interim Varsity head coach in 2013.  
Kevin led Southwick's varsity team to their first playoff appearance in
program history.  Kev has coached elite young players with
Pioneer Valley Juniors and has
recently attended the 3 day,
Gold Medal Squared clinic, to better teach the skills and concepts
of the game to our beginners.
           

Strength and Conditioning / Plyos - Bernie Sadoski

Coach Bernie has been assisting with the team's efforts to become
stronger, faster, and jump higher and hit harder.  He prepares a program
of exercises and conditioning to raise the performance of our athletes.  
His work has not gone unnoticed and he is being requested around
New England to share his expertise with college and Junior Olympic
programs to improve their players.  Bernie is also our unofficial trainer
and tapes up our players with nagging minor injuries.  We probably owe
the 2010 State Championship to Bernie's taping skills and 40 rolls of
athletic tape!
