Introducing Girls Coach Melonie Allin

Melonie Allin is a great example of our young female coaches who bring the skills and experience gained from not only club volleyball, but from university playing and coaching experience.  She has been coaching our girls teams for six years.

After playing club, Mel played 2 years post secondary volleyball at UNC Pembroke and 3 years at McMaster University. In her final year of university she helped coach the Mac 20U team under Tim Louks.  Upon graduation she took an assistant coaching position at Brock University with their women’s varsity team for the 2006/2007 season.

At the completion of that season she returned to the Durham Region and has been coaching with Durham Attack ever since, most recently as an assistant coach for the 15U Provincial and National East and West Championship team last season.

She continues to play competitively with a Toronto team and recently returned from Torino, Italy where she and her team won the World Masters Games Gold medal in the 30+ age division.

Outside of volleyball, Mel teaches grade 1 French Immersion in Whitby.
