  • Coach Bridgette Cochran

    Coach Cochran has been coaching volleyball since 2002. She can tailor the practice to fit the athletes’ needs.  What we emphasize at Upward is situational training and multi-ball drills. We care about our players and we train them very hard.  Within an hour, the athlete will get lots of reps, be tired, be encouraged and will grow.
