Assistant Coach, Calvin College
Grand Rapids, MI
NCAA Division III
Laura Bindon has been an assistant coach at Calvin College for seven seasons. In her time at Calvin, Bindon has coached five different AVCA All-Americans, 18 all-conference selections, and three conference most valuable players. The Knights have won over 200 matches, and have made six consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances during her tenure there.
"I love coaching at the college level because you have so many opportunities to develop meaningful relationships with the players," Bindon said. "I want to continue to coach and teach at this level. I look forward to being a head coach some day, but also feel that I have much to contribute as an assistant coach."
"Most importantly, I want to continue to learn the game of volleyball and pass it on, helping to grow the sport from the younger levels on up," she said. "The dream of a national championship is on my mind - like everyone else's - but I also thoroughly enjoy the work and challenges that are required to build a program to that level."
