Coach: Darin Danelski
Darin grew up in Green Bay and now lives in Ashippun with his wife and 4 children, three of which are currently attending college and the youngest attends Oconomowoc High School.
Darin has been playing volleyball for over 35 years and started his volleyball career at UW Platteville, where he studied mechanical and electrical engineering. He played competitive volleyball there on an intramural team and that is where his passion for the sport began.
After graduating, Darin took employment as an engineer in the Lake Country area and began playing volleyball year round in varying indoor and sand leagues and tournaments throughout the Milwaukee area.
He began his coaching career in 1999 where he coached his oldest daughter’s team at the YMCA. When his youngest daughter began playing volleyball at the YMCA, he continued coaching her as well. He also coached her team in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades at the WYVL Fall League at Center court and is currently co-coaching the 6th grade WYVL this year.
Darin’s coaching emphasis is on smart play and tactics with a strong emphasis on fundamentals. In club season he has coached an Eclipse team to 2nd place at West Coach Nationals. He began his OVBC career at the 14's in 2017 and took on the JV program at OHS in 2018.
In addition to playing volleyball, Darin enjoys being a spectator and watching his youngest daughter progress through club, sand, and high school volleyball. In his free time, he enjoys flying, boating, traveling, and trap shooting
