CAIO DE SOUZA
Team: 17-2, 14-R2
Caio, originally from Brazil, moved from Kansas City to San Diego about a year ago. His relationship with volleyball started back in 1998, when he fell in love with the sport as a young kid. He played all the four years of high school as a middle and opposite, and another fours years for Park University in Missouri. Caio was a NAIA national champion with Park in 2014, and in 2015 was named NAIA player of the year as well as All-American.
As a volleyball coach, Caio has one year experience coaching with 17s boys at COAST. In addition, he was able to coach girls for a month in Amarillo (Texas), while in summer vacation in 2014. Caio has a passion for coaching kids, and he sees that as a great opportunity to give back to the volleyball community, and to help young players to develop important skills for their future in the sport and in life. He is very excited about working on his own skills as a coach, and he believes that COAST is a the perfect club for him to achieve that.
