Club Director/U17 Tsunami Assistant Coach 
Varsity/JV Head Coach Jacksonville Christian Academy
Varsity Boys Head Coach Jacksonville Christian Academy

My three passions in life are Jesus, family and volleyball. I began playing volleyball in middle school and then continued playing in south Florida at Port St. Lucie High School where I was the first player in the history of the school to make the Varsity team as a freshman. My junior year I was named captain of my team, and I began studying how to become a leader. I played travel ball at one of our local clubs all throughout my middle school and high school years where I made the National teams and had the opportunity to travel the US playing the highest level of competition in my age category.

I had the awesome privilege of traveling to Costa Rica on a volleyball missions trip where I helped to run camps and clinics during the day and played their local and national team in the evenings. It was on that trip that I saw first hand how the Lord could use my talent and love for volleyball as a platform to spread the Gospel.

I then went on to play at Tennessee Temple University on a full ride scholarship. After college I took some time away from volleyball to marry the love of my life (a Marine) and moved to Jacksonville, NC. I was a stay at home mother for 7 years taking care of my son (Paul, now 18 years old) and daughter (Hannah, now 16 years old).

In 2012, when my youngest reached school age, I began my coaching career as the Varsity Assistant Coach at Jacksonville Christian Academy. In 2013, I became the Varsity Head Coach at Jacksonville Christian Academy and currently still hold that position. In 2019, we started a boys team at Jacksonville Christian Academy, which I am proud to head coach as well. In 2022, I also took on the responsibility of being the JV girls head coach at the school as well. Our program at the school has grown, adding two additional fundamental teams that train and develop young players to feed our JV and Varsity teams. We went from having the traditional two teams at our school to 5 teams at our school. The last two years, our teams have won 4 conference championships.

For the past 8 years,  I have also been a full time history teacher at JCA, but in 2022, the Lord opened a door for me to leave teaching and pursue the dream of starting a volleyball club in our area. FCA was looking for an individual that loved the Lord and had a desire to spread the gospel along with having a love and knowledge of the game of volleyball to serve as our area's first FCA Coastal Volleyball Club Director. I am so excited for this opportunity to not only train athletes on how to be the best volleyball players they can be , but also to train them on how they can use the platform of volleyball to share the love of Jesus. We are not on a mission to just bring a volleyball club to our area, we are bringing a volleyball club to our area that is on a MISSI
ON!

U14 Tsunami's Head Coach  

Angie Lovell 
Psalms 51:10 keeps me humbled and true. And Revelation 19, gives me hope and motivation for what is to come.

Hello, my name is Angela Lovell. But my favorite name is “Coach”. I have played volleyball for over 30 years including; High School, AAU, and Beach. Then moved into coaching. When I am not taking every opportunity to play, I love crafting, woodworking, puzzles and mentoring a younger generation with my Dunkin Donuts in hand.

I LOVE tacos and FitAid. I am encouraged to know that even when I am having a messy moment in life that I am Gods masterpiece in progress.






U17 Tsunami Head Coach
Gemma Towle
Matthew 7:7  Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you

My name is Gemma Towle and I am excited to be a part of FCA Coastal as the Head Coach for girls U17 Tsunamis. Volleyball began for me in 7th grade mostly begrudgingly, but I soon fell in love with the game and enjoyed playing through middle school as a MB and that position is ultimately where I stayed. In high school I played on a freshman team in Ohio and then moved to NC making Varsity my sophomore year and was also voted captain. A position I accepted knowing I could have a positive impact. I played club for 3 years here locally in Jacksonville for Venom and was lucky enough to be recruited and get to travel to Boston, Kentucky and South Carolina for visits but ultimately suffered an injury my Sr year that made my ability to play the following fall questionable, and I decided to sign to LCC. Unfortunately, I only stayed for one season with a shoulder that wasn’t healing. I took a break and got healthy and now play several days a week, for the Jacksonville adult rec league, and enjoy coaching two teams for the Jacksonville Rec. 

If I am not on a court, I am in an arena as horse training and volleyball are my passions outside of my family. I have enjoyed training horses and clients professionally the last 6 years and truly love being a part of an athlete's growth. I live on tacos of any kind and WILL be finding the nearest Mexican restaurant after every tournament!




U18 Boys Tsunami Head Coach

                                                                   Victor Haymon II                                                                            Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.6. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Hello, my name is Victor Haymon, or Coach Vic. I started playing volleyball my freshman year of college, and haven’t stopped playing since. I fell in love with the game, and wanted to be the best at it. I had a desire to share my love for the game with others, so I began coaching. Coaching this sport has brought me so much joy over the years. Watching my young athletes have their “light-bulb moment” on the court, is one of the greatest accomplishments a coach can have. Hearing the “I can’t” turn into “look Coach, I did it” or “did you see what I just did” is a favorite part of coaching for me.

Outside of coaching, I am the Worship Leader at Generation Baptist Church, in New Bern, NC since 2017. I also work for the church, and absolutely love it. I do play a ton of volleyball in my free time. Since moving to NC back in 2016, I have been the New Bern Adult Rec League Champion for 5 years, the Ayden Parks and Rec Adult League Champion, a 2-time Surf City Adult Rec League Champion, and a 2-time ECJVC Adult Sand League Champion. I also love playing Pickleball and spend way too much time trying to get better at it.

I have 10 years of coaching experience: 7 years club coaching experience (4 years with ECJVC, 2 years with CVPC, and 1 year with TRVC) and am the former Head Coach MS & JV, and Assistant Varsity Coach at The Epiphany School for 5 years – 2 time Conference Champion, 3 time Conference Champion Runner Up. This will be my first year coaching for FCA Coastal but am looking forward to being a part of what makes FCACVC different.
