USA Volleyball moved to bolster its beach division on Wednesday by hiring former pro Danalee Corso as technical coordinator and master coach.
Corso will serve as the junior national team coach while
organizing youth and junior beach volleyball performance camps and
helping select train junior athletes for international
tournaments. She will also provide technical assistance to the elite athletes
representing the United States in international competition.
Corso will also develop a certification and training program for
beach volleyball coaches.
“Danalee’s addition to the USAV family illustrates our
commitment to grow the beach game by creating new programming and
enhancing support,” said Ali Wood, the USAV director of beach
programs. “In addition to her strong volleyball experience,
Danalee has a successful entrepreneurial background that will
stimulate program development.
The owner, with her husband Brian, of the Aloha Ball Beach
Volleyball School, Corso has been coaching beach volleyball since
1993. She has worked with teams that have competed both on the AVP
Tour and represented the United States internationally.
Corso played volleyball at Loyola Marymount before heading to
the beach on the American and international beach volleyball tours.
