Kelly Braun-Duin

This will be Kelly's 2nd year as the 12u coach. She brings a lifetime of volleyball experience to the team. First, as a local high school player, Kelly earned many honors including Conference Player of the Year as a senior. She followed that up by playing four years of collegiate volleyball at Bryan College in Dayton, TN. Since then she has begun to transfer her knowledge and experience gained in her playing days over into coaching. Presently, she is the head varsity coach at Legacy Christian Academy where she also teaches fourth grade. She enjoys working with young players and helping them learn the fundamentals of volleyball. She believes that if each girl has a teachable attitude and a strong work ethic they will grow as a player. Kelly is always trying to better herself as she recently participated in a GMS coaching clinic at NC State in Raleigh, NC.

Kelly was born and raised in Winchester, VA. Now she resides in Stephens City with her husband of 15 years and their three children.
