15navy(National) – 2017-2018 Season
Coach: Bill Serb
Coach bio: Bill is excited to bring his 26 seasons of coaching experience into his first year with RVA. He has an extensive background in volleyball, having spent 13 years as a varsity girls coach at Kettle Moraine (6 years) and Sussex Hamilton (7 years) high schools. Bill also coached JV & freshmen girls at Sacred Heart HS in Minnesota for 3 seasons prior to moving to Wisconsin.
In addition to high school, Bill spent time almost a decade ago coaching club volleyball for W.A.V.E. in Waukesha for 2 years (15-1s & 15/16 combined) and Midwest Penguins 16-2s for one season. This past year Bill also assisted with several of the Midwest Penguins Wisconsin Club skill sessions. In addition to his club experience, Bill has coached at Waukesha Catholic (2011-present), coaching 5th – 8th grade boys “A” teams, and 7th & 8th grade girls “A” teams. Last fall he led the Waukesha Catholic 8th grade girls to their first ever Seton tournament championship while compiling a 15-1 game record.
Beyond coaching, Bill has worked for the Elizabeth Seton Volleyball Championships, which are the 8th grade, invitation-only Archdiocesan championships consisting of 84 teams in 3 divisions playing a week-long tournament. Bill served as the Girls Division 2 Director before taking over as Assistant Tournament Director and Webmaster. He currently serves as the overall Tournament Director and Webmaster. In addition to his roles as coach and tournament director, Bill has held his WIAA volleyball referee license for the past 5 years, and he has served as statistician and chaperone for his son’s club volleyball team that finished 3rd in the Open Division of the USAV Championships the past 2 seasons.
Outside of volleyball, Bill is a former high school English teacher who left teaching to raise his four children (ages 10-17). He serves as the Athletic Board President at their school, as well as the Cubmaster for his youngest son’s Cub Scout Pack. He still enjoys playing volleyball in men’s’ leagues, spending time with his wife and kids, and supporting all of their activities.
