Rick's life is beach volleyball. He has been playing since he was 16 years old, going on almost 30 years. It just so happens that he played in the first sand tournament they had at Brown's Park on the original 4 courts, when they were new, back in the summer of 1991. Rick has been coaching for 7 years, but claims that now that he knows how much he loves it, he wishes he would have got into it 20 years ago. He enjoys helping people, especially when it has to do with volleyball. Having been born and raised in Spokane, Rick is an integral part of the volleyball community and ERVA is honored to have him on their Board of Directors!
