Assistant Club Director Anthony Austin

My journey through sports has been more than just a series of games; it’s been a roadmap to learning invaluable life lessons. From my early days on fields and courts, I discovered the power of effort, accountability, and teamwork—the very pillars that have guided my growth through high school, college, and into adulthood.

As a parent and coach, I’ve made it my mission to embed these fundamental values in the individuals I mentor.

My love affair with volleyball began in the summer of 2012. Just as my passion for sports ignited during my formative years, I found a similar fervor for this sport. Coaching at The Massillon Rec Center’s youth league in 2016 sparked a newfound passion for teaching. When I was offered a coaching position with Club Extreme in 2019, I embraced the opportunity wholeheartedly, eager to share not just my knowledge of the sport but also the core importance of effort.

This journey as a coach has been incredibly rewarding. Witnessing the growth and development of young athletes has been nothing short of inspiring. There have been countless moments of pride, from watching individuals grasp new techniques to witnessing the team bond and achieve remarkable progress together.

My time with Club Extreme has been marked by numerous memorable achievements, but what truly stands out are the instances where the values of effort, accountability, and teamwork manifested in the team’s success both on and off the court. These moments reaffirm my belief in the profound impact sports can have on shaping not just athletes but also responsible, driven individuals prepared for life’s challenges.
