Long-time Santa Clarita coaching fixture Zach Ambrose returns once again to LAVA North for the coming season. One of the area’s most prominent coaches, Zach served for many years as the Head Boys and Girls Varsity Coach at his alma mater, Saugus High School. His final season as coach for the girls varsity saw the squad win the Foothill League Championship in 2011, progressing deep into the CIF playoffs. Zach also spent considerable time in the collegiate ranks as Head Men’s Coach of Pasadena City College and First Assistant at Occidental College.
Now retired entirely from collegiate and high school coaching, Zach continues to fuel his passion for volleyball as a club coach with LAVA North, bringing fifteen-plus years of experience on the club volleyball coaching circuit—not to mention his collegiate and high school coaching background—bringing deep roots and ties to the local club-going community. He has coached nearly every club age group overall the years with his patented compassionate, no-nonsense combo approach, finding great success.
