Beginning in 2016 he took on the coaching duties at the Oaks Christian Middle School volleyball program with his wife, Katie, and they have won multiple league championships. Buck coached at the Sports Academy Volleyball Club in 2021. The 14s-1 team finished 13th in the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) and had a top 5 finish in Premier. They also finished fifth in the Patriot division at the Junior Olympics. This is his first season coaching for the Sunshine Volleyball Club.
His coaching philosophy is simple – it’s the process not the result that is important. If the focus is on the result, it becomes impossible to be your ultimate best. But with the focus on the process, the results will follow and usually at a faster pace.
Buck loves to watch the transformation of a team, the progression from one day to the next throughout the entire year.
He and Katie live in Agoura Hills with their three children. Caroline, four years-old, plays for the Sunshine Peewees. A highlight of 2021 was winning an adult beach volleyball tournament with his 14-year-old daughter; she is a member of the Sunshine 15s (Westside). He’s thrilled that his family shares his passion for volleyball.
