When Charles City Community Schools went searching for a new volleyball coach, they didn’t have to go deep into the bench to find someone with a wealth of experience and coaching ability.
Hailey Brown, an 8-year coaching veteran, will be named the Charles City High School head volleyball coach pending board approval by the Charles City Community School District Board of Education Monday evening.
Ms. Brown is a school counselor with the Charles City High School. She was hired in this role in 2019.
Her extensive background includes coaching since 2012, including club teams in Starmont, IA, and Tomah, WI. She is also the lead coach for 5th - 12th grade camps allowing her the ability to coach both young and senior players. She has also coached at Tomah Middle School and Tomah High School and continues to host camps and individual lessons.
“I’m very excited to be named the head volleyball coach for Charles City Community Schools. My focus will be sharing my knowledge and passion for the game with our athletes,” says Brown. “It’s important to me that my players know being a driven student-athlete looks like hard work on and off the court. I want to empower students to work together to accomplish a similar goal through skill development, teamwork, sportsmanship, and leadership.”
Brown’s first responsibility will be leading the pick for a new assistant coach for the volleyball program.
“We are thrilled to tap the wealth of volleyball experience that is right here in Charles City,” says Director of Activities Todd Forsyth. “The direction Hailey will take the volleyball program is exciting. I believe that we are going to be a leader in the conference under Hailey’s direction.”
Brown graduated from Royall High School in Elroy, WI, and Upper Iowa University in Fayette in 2015.
