Welcome to Fresno City College Women’s Volleyball!
I want to take a moment to share with you just what it takes to be a member of our program and the expectations that come with being a part of Fresno City College Volleyball. We pride ourselves on holding our athletes to a higher standard both on and off the court. Practice sessions are physically and mentally demanding as we work to enhance each of our athletes’ talents and abilities. In addition, we are constantly striving to develop camaraderie, respect, and commitment within our team , as we feel that this is what separates the good teams from the great ones. Members of our team are also expected to dedicate themselves to academic success in the classroom. It is our goal to develop each of our athletes into what we consider a “complete package” during their two years in our program. We want our student athletes to be self-motivated, highly respected individuals who are ready to take that next step in life – whether it’s on the volleyball court, in the classroom, or in the workplace.
Our pursuit of excellence demands a total team effort from both the players and the coaches. In this respect, I am very fortunate to have a coaching staff that is highly experienced and extremely dedicated to the teaching philosophies of this program. Like any good team, this staff works well together to compliment each others strengths and weaknesses in an effort to achieve success. Art Tamayo (passing/defense) and Rob Beard (hitting/blocking) each bring a certain level of expertise to this staff that makes for an outstanding combination.
In 8 years, this program has boasted 5 AVCA All-Americans, 7 All-State Players, 8 All-Region Players, 7 Conference MVPs, and 3 All-Tournament Team Members at the State Tournament. In addition, the Rams Volleyball Program has won 8 consecutive CVC Conference Titles, and the 2008 team still holds the single best record in school history, going undefeated in the Central Valley Conference and finishing 3rd at the State Tournament!
Preparations are already under way for another successful season! Our athletes and coaches are working hard to insure an exciting brand of volleyball that continues live up to the tradition of Ram athletics!
