Ryan VonFeldt, I currently live in St. Charles but was born and raised in Collinsville Illinois. I am married and a father of 3 amazing boys. I started playing volleyball in high school, following in my older sisters footsteps. Played club ball many years as well as in the Prairie State Games in Illinois. My high school (Althoff), didn't have a team at the time.
My coaching career started at a student assistant at the college I attended. (Belleville Area College) the team ended up placing 5th in the nation.
I was hired on at St. Louis College of Pharmacy for the Womens team, assistant for 2 years, then took over as head coach for 8 years. During that time, I helped start the boys program at my Althoff. I was an assistant there for 2 years before then moving to St. Charles. I was then hired on at Francis Howell North where I coach the boy’s team for 9 years.
Spent some time away from coaching for about a year and I was hired on to start up the mens team at STLCOP, now University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis. This is my third year with the program. This is Ryan's second season with Team Momentum.
As a coach, I work to get the most out of my players while teaching them the skills of the game. My coaching style is geared to make sure the players enjoy the game enough to want to come back year after year. There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing my former players become coaches themselves.
