Over the last 24 years the Sunshine Volleyball Club has grown into a program with over 30 teams, ranging in ages from 10-18. The teams have received over 150 bids to USAV Junior Nationals with 25 Top 5 finishes including three gold, 3 silver, and 4 bronze. Cari coaches the 17 LA team; they won gold at the Junior Nationals in 2021. The program also runs a beach volleyball camp and a college camp. Hundreds of players from the club have been recruited into Division 1, 2, and 3 collegiate programs.
Cari’s coaching philosophy is to train skills intensely, that games should be easier than practice. She believes everyone should be involved in the drills and while practice is where the players learn, it still should be fun. Cari wants her players to learn life skills as well as volleyball skills and to have the resolve to never quit.
She loves watching her players grow and mature and go on to do amazing things in their lives.
Cari lives in Pacific Palisades with her husband, Perry. Off the court Cari loves family dinners, reading, and playing mahjong with her friends. She has a passion for outdoor Christmas decorations and her house is always lit up for the holidays.
