“ I had the pleasure of meeting Dave back in 2017 when we worked together with the USAV High Performance Select A1 program and I’ve been a fan of his ever since. Not only does he bring a wealth of knowledge gained from experience at a variety of levels, his professionalism and ability to create genuine relationships will serve our community at a level I can’t begin to put into words. Dave will serve Alliance in a variety of areas but his main focus will be the development of our coaches and players.
