About lauryn

Lauryn Gillis played volleyball for the University of Wisconsin from 2015-2018. The Badger made it into the Sweet 16 three times and went on to the Elite 8 twice. She went to graduate school at the University of South Carolina, playing beach volleyball there from 2018-2019. Lauryn played in Finland for three months in 2020 before COVID created a pause. She played for a year in Italy from 2020-2021.

While this is her first year as a Sunshine coach, she has been giving private lessons and assisting at volleyball camps for five years.

Lauryn’s coaching philosophy is to lead by example. She believes in maintaining high energy during practices, keeping communication lines open and flowing, and consistent positive attitude.

She loves being able to connect with the girls and to be a mentor, not just a coach. She wants to see them finish the year more confident, better disciplined, and able to go into the next year as better leaders.

Lauryn still plays beach volleyball with her friends. She enjoys crocheting sweaters and blankets and is “Aunt Lauryn” to Zoey, her roommate’s dog.

“There is always going to be a reason why you can’t do something..“

“..your job is to constantly look for the reasons why you can achieve your dreams.“
