Chris Harris

I have played volleyball on a competitive level since I was 14. While playing club volleyball in high school, I attended training camps at Penn State and Pepperdine and learned from some of the most famous names in the sport, such as coach Marv Dunphy. After graduating high school, I was recruited to play in college at Missouri Baptist University in Saint Louis, MO. From there I transferred to Texas State University where I was captain of the men's club volleyball team and was a practice player on the NCAA D1 women's volleyball team. During this time I was selected for the USAV High Performance Beach Volleyball program in Los Angeles, CA. Upon graduating, I started coaching for AVA's indoor and beach volleyball program. This is my second year coaching at AVA and I hope to grow the sport by inspiring future generations to get involved in a sport that has helped shape my life.
