Shane Green

Head Coach

I grew up in inner city Chicago always trying to be outside and play sports.  We happened to be the only apartment complex with a true yard on our extended block.  We always had football games, volleyball games, and soccer games at our house with the local kids.  That's where I started my love for volleyball.  My step father would always say "hit it where they ain't" and that was my first lesson in volleyball.  In high school I played football and found out they had a spring men's volleyball program my freshman year.  I tried out and made it at 5'3" and 103 lbs!  I've worked hard since that day to become a great volleyball player.  I played volleyball in college and continue to play as an adult.  Some of my playing successes are more recent.  At 28 years old in 2013 I got to play and represent the USA on an amateur team in Italy and Slovenia.  We went 11-1 and only lost to the Slovenian National Team.  At 30 years old I took a bronze medal at the USA Nationals with a team that shocked everyone.  2 years later my team took 1st place in the nation!  Winning the national title is my biggest playing success!  I've now done it twice, 2016 and 2018 best Amateur team in the nation! 

I started coaching incoming 8th graders at summer camps in high school.  When I was in college, I started coaching a traveling club team and a middle school team.  I've never taken a break since.  I've coached my college club team, an actual college team, club teams from 12 years old to 18 years old, adult travel teams, middle schools, and high schools.   At this point I have coached or assisted on 58 volleyball teams in 15 years.  I was also the athletic director of my previous middle school for 8 years.

Now I'm the Crawford Cougars Head Volleyball Coach.  My dream is to make us be consistently at the top of Fayette County Middle Schools every season.  Because of this dream, I have started before school volleyball practice, an after school club team, spring clinics, and more!  I dream to be the winning team, I dream to be number one in Lexington, who's with me?
