Meet Our Directors

Arsenal is a non-profit organization founded by a group of Cincinnati and Cleveland volleyball players who came together with the common goal of creating a better place for junior volleyball players to better their skills and compete with best.  One of the most unique assets about Arsenal is the direct involvement of the directors with the teams.  Directors are frequently seen in the gym coaching a team of their own, running a club-wide skills session, or giving

a private lesson.
