Erica Bodker

— 14R Coach

Hi, My name is Erica Bodker, I’ve moved to WV from Texas 3 years ago. I’m currently pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Cyber Security and Information Assurance at WGU; I’m also a mother of three and have been married for over 14 years. With this comes a unique understanding of the value of teamwork, dedication, and nurturing growth.

With a passion for volleyball deeply ingrained in my Texan roots, I’ve embarked on an incredible journey that led me to the Mountain Monsters Volleyball Club. With years of experience playing but also as the Head Coach for both Cross Lanes Christian Middle School and Varsity teams, I’ve honed my skills in shaping athletes into not only exceptional players but also well-rounded individuals. Born in Texas, where they say everything is bigger, I bring that same larger-than-life enthusiasm to every practice, match, and player interaction. My love for volleyball is surpassed only by my desire to witness players evolve and thrive. There’s a unique joy in observing someone master a new skill and achieve their goals, and that’s the driving force behind why I love coaching. I’m committed to imparting not only the technical intricacies of volleyball but also emphasizing the significance of off-court essentials like weight lifting and nutrition. At Mountain Monsters Volleyball Club, I am thrilled to unite my devotion to the game with my unwavering dedication to fostering individual and collective growth. Together, we’ll serve, set, and spike our way to success, celebrating every milestone achieved both within the game and in life.
