Introducing Mesa Verde’s Head Varsity Boys’ Volleyball Coach,
Jessica Shoffner! 🏐
With ten years of coaching experience, Coach Shoffner is prepared to bring Mesa Verde’s volleyball program to the next level by emphasizing the player’s individual skill development, team systems and tactical strategies. She began her coaching career in 2008 while she was still a varsity player at Mesa Verde, where she coached at Sylvan Middle School until 2011. From 2012-2014 she coached the JV girls’ team at Mesa Verde before getting the opportunity to coach at Folsom High School. Since then, she has concurrently head coached the JV girls’ team at Folsom as well as 16U premier for Aspire Volleyball Club.
Outside of volleyball, Jessica has a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and works at Sutter Roseville Medical Center as a Wound Care Assistant. She also recently got married to another MVHS Alumni, Richy.
We are looking forward to an amazing season with her as our program director!
Mesa Verde High School
The goal of our program is to encourage and nurture the development of fundamental values on and off the court and to help these young athletes become strong, well-rounded young adults through their love of the game of volleyball. These goals can be accomplished by internalizing and executing every day to the following set of values: integrity, sportsmanship, teamwork and strong work ethic. It is on this foundation that we can build a successful program that our athletes, parents, school and community will be proud to support.
The sport of volleyball is always evolving, and as your coaching staff, we pledge to stay current on the latest rules and coaching trends, and to constantly be a student of the game so as to better influence the progress of this program. By continuing to grow and refine our coaching methods, we aim to keep our teams prepared for the strain of a very physical sport played at a high level and to compete with teams in our league and region. Preseason practices and games will focus on fitness and fundamentals and progress into more complex strategy and decision making in preparation for league competition and playoff contention. As long as we maintain our focus on embodying our core set of values and work hard together each and every day, we are confident that we can build a program that wins on and off the court.
