Paul Grace

Power Prep Academy Director, 16 Silver Head Coach

Paul began his volleyball experience in 2007 playing pickup games at parks and recreation centers. After getting to know some of the better players, he began to truly develop and hone his skills. Paul used a culmination of the different skills, styles and techniques taught to him by many different players from more advanced skill levels to develop his own style of play. He then jumped into the world of competitive volleyball and began playing in leagues and tournaments all around the Metroplex. With many league and tournament wins under his belt, he was ready to begin a new journey in 2011 into coaching other athletes in the game he loves so much. “I’ve played many sports throughout my athletic career and devoted myself to all of them. Volleyball was the only sport I truly fell in love with. My goal is to provide the training to younger generations that I did not have the luxury of receiving myself when I was younger. I also hope to make sure they never lose their passion for the game.” Paul brings to the table a solid knowledge of all skills and strategies of the game. “Huge hits are impressive, but a smart tip or roll shot it worth the exact same amount of points.”
