Makare has been coaching club volleyball teams for six years, one year with Mizuno Long Beach and the last five with Sunshine VC.

Her coaching philosophy is to create an environment that challenges and encourages athletes to reach their potential, on and off the court.

She loves seeing the players grow and feel more confident in themselves and their volleyball skills.

While now a resident of Redondo Beach, Makare was born in the Fiji Islands. She is the oldest of eight, five sisters and two brothers, and six out of the eight received volleyball scholarships to college. She speaks three languages aside from English, French, Italian, and Fijian. Makare has a daughter, Wakaya, who is a freshman at Tiffin University and is playing volleyball there.

“Set realistic goals, keep re-evaluating

and be consistent.“
