The Mount Allison Mounties Women's Volleyball Program is pleased to announce that Robbie Crouse has been named head coach. Crouse was chosen to lead the Mounties program after an extensive search process.
Crouse, who worked as an assistant coach with the Mounties last season, brings a variety of coaching experiences with him, including high school, college and work with provincial team programs. Crouse has previously served as both head coach and assistant coach of the Charles P Allen High School program. He has also worked with the Sonics Under 18 club program. This summer he will be involved with Volleyball NB's Under 15 program.
"We are really excited to introduce Coach Crouse as our new head coach," offered Pierre Arsenault, Director of Athletics and Recreation at Mount Allison. "In a very short period last year with our program, Robbie demonstrated a strong command for the game technically and a great approach for dealing with our student athletes. We are looking forward to the energy and enthusiasm he will bring to our talented group."
“It’s an honor to be selected as the new Head Coach for Mount Allison Mounties," commented Crouse. "I received a glimpse of what this group was capable of last season. I’ll be counting down the days until we are back in the gym and are working towards our ceiling. I’m excited to cultivate the culture of the program. As head coach , I plan to bring a competitive and positive mindset to the program. The Mounties are going to be a team that people will not look forward to seeing on their schedule. “
Joining Crouse on the Mounties volleyball coaching staff will be long time Mounties coach Andrew Kennedy who is returning to the program for another season. New to the staff will be John McDougall (Calgary, AB) who was on the coaching staff for a boys provincial Under 14 Alberta championship earlier this spring. Also joining the Mounties coaching staff for the 2019-2020 season will be former ACAA MVP and All-Canadian Kelcie Levesque.
