My name is Jennifer. I was born and raised in West Seattle and am the founder of West Seattle Reign.
I stared playing volleyball before I can remember and have been coaching locally for many years. I enjoy coaching all levels of volleyball and feel there is a need in the West Seattle area for a competitive, collaborative and consistent volleyball club that could provide a supporting environment for all athletes.
I am striving to create the sense of community in youth sports that I was lucky enough to be able to be a part of as a youth athlete in West Seattle myself. I also hope to provide an environment in which our staff and coaches can teach our athletes to succeed even if the match is not won.

My name is Samantha. I hail from many places but as of late it's Tukwila.
I found volleyball as a young 6th grade middle schooler and realized it was one of the only sports I wanted play. Unfortunately I didn't get past a semester in school P.E.
I am part of the admin side here at West Seattle Reign, working more behind the scenes. You might see me for check in/out at some practices.
I'm so grateful to have the opportunity to help athletes develop their skills here at WSR.
My name is Shannon. I'm from West Seattle, born & raised.
I have played volleyball since I was a youth & love it. I played thru high school and recreational after. I enjoy teaching younger athletes the basic 5; serving, setting, spiking, passing & blocking. The best part of coaching youth is watching their skills grow at each practice.
I am passionate about coaching the youth in West Seattle and just as my dad did when he coached our WS teams as a kid, I plan on helping foster their passion for our sport while teaching them all that I know.
I look forward to meeting you and your athletes on the court!
My name is Mariah. I have lived in West Seattle my entire life and have played for local schools and community centers for over 6 years.
I am in the marketing department here at West Seattle Reign. Specifically I manage the Social Media for WSR.
I have a passion for the game of volleyball, which is what initially interested me in working here. I also love social media, layout, design and photography so this opportunity was a great fit for me.
I look forward to seeing the players out there and getting to know the WSR family as I learn and grow in my new position here.
Hi there! My name is Taylor. I’m originally from Iowa, but found my way out to Seattle a couple years ago. The mountains were calling!
I started playing volleyball in middle school as an outside hitter. I also played on a club team in high school and they were some of the best times of my life. I went on to play two years in college as a libero/defensive specialist. I’ve been playing in rec leagues ever since.
Learning, teaching, and playing the sport will always be one of my favorite things. As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized that fundamental skills are so important. I’ve also realized just how important team sports were in the development of my character.
I love how sports shaped me as a child/young adult and I can’t help but participate in that growth for the next generation! See you on the court!
