Matrix is excited to welcome back Coach Owen, and his vast coaching experience.  This is the 2nd year Coach Owen has been with Matrix.  Last year he was instrumental to the advancement of our 16 open team.  Coach Owen began coaching in Michigan back in 2006 as a J.V. coach at Lake Orion HS.  Since then Coach Owen has coached numerous club teams with successful seasons.  Coach Owen accepted a position as the assistant coach at Battle Creek Lakeview HS (MI) under Coach Sawyer to study under a premier coach.  Coach Owen spent three years under Coach Sawyer and cannot thank her enough for everything she taught him about volleyball, coaching and life.  Coach Owen was also mentored by college coach, Coach Buck, at USA Michigan Volleyball (MI).  Without the both of them, Coach Owen would not be the technician volleyball coach he is today.  After Lakeview High School, Coach Owen accepted a position as the assistant coach at Albion College (MI), a NCAA Division III school.  Coach Owen was instrumental at Albion College as he worked with the middle blockers and defensive schemes.

In 2015 Coach Owen moved to Arizona to take a teaching and varsity volleyball coaching job at La Joya Community HS in Avondale, AZ.  Coach Owen accepted the position with the sole purpose of building a volleyball program.  In two years there, the team has bonded and the culture has improved greatly. The rebuilding & growing process at La Joya is well underway, and we expect to make even more progress next year.

Coach Owen will be running monthly clinics focusing on a single element of the game.  His expertise and high level of coaching will be available club wide.
