Volleyball Coaches Corner and Final 2013 Stats
Coaches Corner with Volleyball Coach Kim Paisley
The ReSporter: Hey Coach a tough ending to your season, what happened?
Coach Paisley: “I would like to start off by saying, that I enjoyed my first volleyball season with Canyon Lake. I have had amazing help from my assistants and athletic girls coordinator and AD. The girls have been eager to learn and excited for the new things to come. I feel that overall we have played well and improved from day one. Our skills did not decline the second round, it was the lack of knowledge and sheer fight that stumped us in the second round.”
The ReSporter: What would you do different, knowing what you know now after your first year at Canyon Lake?
Coach Paisley: “I would not change anything I did. I did what I could with the time I had and the little time I had to get to know the girls. Now I know enough to begin to really push them mentally to that next level.”
The ReSporter: How is Canyon Lake prepared to up the ante to compete with the behemoths in this district. Of the four teams that qualified only one team was eliminated in the first round.
Coach Paisley: “I am excited to get the opportunity to work with these kids in the off season. Hopefully we can really sharpen our game knowledge and strategy. We have some very young players and inexperienced players on the court. It has been tough at times to work through it but we managed. I look forward to watching these sophomores and freshman grow and become huge contributors to the next couple of seasons.”
The ReSporter: What were some of those pleasant surprises you saw with this team as the season matured?
Coach Paisley: “Some people have really learned how to perform outside of their comfort zone and that will help them mature and be more versatile. We need to grow more on the knowledge of the game and hopefully with the majority of the varsity and subvarsity kids playing club, that will help.”
The ReSporter: What should the fans be looking for, for next year?
Coach Paisley: “I hope the fans will see a stronger team with fight, leadership, and togetherness.”
The ReSporter: What did you learn from the JV and Freshman teams and how will they be integrated into the program next year?
Coach Paisley: “We have a good group of 8th graders that I am very excited to see come up to our High School. They will provide some competition for the older girls and hopefully everyone is working to get better for next year because everyone’s spot is for the taking. If you want it bad enough it will be yours.”
The ReSporter: Final thoughts?
Coach Paisley: “I am excited for next season and proud of my kids for overcoming some past adversities, being so coachable, and adjusting so nicely to new ways. We will miss our Seniors and wish them the best of luck in their future.”
