Allie Goff

About Me: I grew up in Seabrook, Texas and attended Clear Falls HS. I recently graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelors in Honors Biology and a Minor in Neuroscience. I was super involved on campus and held leadership roles in every organization I was a part of. This year I am applying to medical school, and am coming back to AVA to help share my passion for volleyball.

Volleyball Background: I began playing volleyball in fifth grade and joined the AVA family the following year. I began playing as a middle blocker and after an injury I switched to an OH/RH. I came to love the team aspect just as much as the sport itself at AVA, and became the woman I am today because of it. At Texas A&M, I was one of three freshmen to make the club volleyball team as a pin hitter. My sophomore year we won the USAV National Championships in Louisville, Kentucky, which was by far one of the coolest moments of my life especially because I never saw myself as an athlete who could make it to the championship court, let alone win the whole thing. My junior and senior years I was elected president and team captain of the club volleyball team where we competed at the highest level with the best teams in the nation. I am beyond excited to be back at AVA, and to coach and hopefully inspire some awesome athletes!

Coaching Philosophy

Great teams start with a great mindset, and skill will follow. Creating an environment where athletes have confidence they can beat any opponent from sheer grit, teamwork, and passion is one I hope to create for all of my athletes. I want to teach my athletes how to be leaders on and off the court and how to create relationships with their teammates founded on trust and respect for one another. When athletes can take the game in their own hands and learn how to play into each other's strengths is how we can find the most success.
