UTEP volleyball assistant coach Julie Allen was named the head coach for the 2015 Sun Country High Performance youth team.
El Paso – UTEP volleyball assistant coach Julie Allen was named the head coach for the 2015 Sun Country High Performance youth team, which will compete at the High Performance Championship on July 21-25 in Des Moines, Iowa.
“We are proud of Julie (Allen), once again being chosen to coach for the Sun Country High Performance team,” said UTEP head coach Holly Watts. “It’s a great opportunity for our UTEP coaching staff to impact players from all over this area by yet another avenue. Her knowledge of the game allows her to help develop these young ladies’ level of play and to help grow the game in the West Texas and New Mexico region.”
This is the third year that Allen has been chosen to lead the Sun Country high-level team.
The High Performance Program bridges the gap between USA National Teams and youth volleyball programs across the country. The High Performance team is a developmental level of the United States Volleyball Association High Performance team designed to provide top training opportunities for volleyball athletes who aspire to reach the elite level of their sport and is intended to grow the pool of talented young players who may someday compete for a spot on the USA National and Olympic Teams.
Allen, who completed her fifth season with the Miners in 2014, has been active within the USA Volleyball High Performance system for four years. Last year, she led the Sun Country team to a ninth-place finish and guided them to victory in five matches at the championship
The first tryouts for players between the ages of 16 and 17 will be March 20th in Albuquerque, N.M.
