Kristen Boatman’s passion for volleyball is evident in the way she coaches and plays. After turning down a volleyball scholarship in pursuit of high academic goals, she began her coaching career at the club level. She has had success at the middle, high and club levels; she has never had a loosing season. Coach Boatman has been coaching for six years, and has coached at K2 Club in Knoxville, Nashville Christian School, David Lipscomb Campus School and Alliance. Coach Boatman’s players will tell you she is a stickler for fundamentals and hard work. When asked what coach would say, replies include “It doesn’t take talent to hustle”, “poor fundamentals are the root of all evil”, and “get there!”
In between seasons you will find Coach Boatman working on her own game, she is a member of several leagues including her favorite team, “The Missfits.” Just like Coach Boatman’s high school coach taught her to love volleyball, she is turning around and doing the same for all of her players.
