Born into a volleyball family, Kyle has been surrounded by the game since his first facial as an infant. Lugged around to gyms and parks as his parents played, and into his early years playing for Spokane Volleyball Club as a junior, he's never been far from the game. His only brother played juniors and collegiate volleyball and still plays today, while his mother is a coach and recognized national scorekeeper/official, and his father has served on the executive board for USA Volleyball for many years. Kyle has been playing volleyball since around ten years old, played in two Junior National events in high school for club ball, continued on to play college club volleyball at Loyola Marymount University as an undergraduate student, and has continued to play without stop (except due to major surgeries) since returning to Spokane after college. Since returning home, Kyle has revitalized his love for the game by learning sand volleyball and competing in doubles volleyball tournaments. Kyle has spent time as a local ref for high school and a college line judge. He also helped form the Gonzaga Men’s Volleyball Club program and served as the club's first coach. Kyle has also coached at the elementary level and mentored several young players. These days he announces the Gonzaga women’s volleyball home matches. He has also formed an adult club team in the region (Inland NW VBC) and took a men’s and women’s team to adult nationals in Phoenix, AZ, Austin, TX, and Dallas, TX. Kyle has also acted as site director for the junior’s regional tournament, and hosted adult tournaments. Kyle served as the adult player rep (and on the ethics committee) for the past year and brought a few new additions to the volleyball community. In the fall, the region hosted the first adult volleyball tournament in many years that saw over 20 teams competing in both mens and womens divisions. He is also leading a court renovation project at Browns Park to bring the only 4 court sand facility within 300 miles up date with new nets, lines, and lots of sand maintenance. He also coordinated the inclusion of PIVA, the college club volleyball association for the northwest, into USA Volleyball. This created a large spike in adult/collegiate memberships for the region and added to its continued growth.
