Coach Colette, 12s, 16s, DOO
Coach Colette Lasley, 12s Co-Head Coach, 16s Assistant Coach, & Director of Operations
Colette, a lifelong athlete, grew up in Virginia Beach playing softball, practicing Tae Kwon Do, and playing the violin. She also took up gymnastics for a short time and did theatre in high school. Colette loves to be around people and has never been content with standing still.
As an adult, she studied historical fencing/sword fighting for seven years. During that time, she became proficient enough to begin coaching others new to the art.
In 2021, Colette came to No Panic first as an adult player new to volleyball and later as our Director of Communications. She feels she can understand the frustrations young athletes go through with learning a new sport as she has passed through the stages of learning with fencing, helped others through those stages as a fencing coach, and has experienced them again with volleyball. She is a big proponent of mental and physical health and how they impact performance, having struggled with both in the past.
For our 2022-2023 season, we welcome Colette back as our Director of Operations. She will also be co-head coaching the 12U girls club team and assisting Coach Alan with the 16s girls club team.
