Camp Director

Venessa Jacobs

Venessa (Hackett) Jacobs enters her first season as head volleyball coach at Southern University after serving as an assistant coach under Nathaniel Denu since 2009.

Read Full Bio

From 2009-2012, Jacobs handle the daily operations of the Southern University volleyball program. She also organized practice schedules and individual instruction for the Lady Jaguars and served as the program's recruiting coordinator.

Jacobs, a native of Oxnard, Calif., was a highly decorated two-sport student-athlete during her playing career at Ventura Junior College in Ventura, Calif. before transferring to LSU in 1992. While at Ventura, Jacobs earned 1st Team All-WSC honors as a freshman while leading the volleyball team to a 20-3 season record, 16-2 in the Western State Conference. She then proceeded to lace up her high tops at the end of the volleyball season and joined the women's basketball team, making an instant impact.

Jacobs led the Pirates in scoring and rebounding in route to earning first team All-WSC honors despite missing the first eight games. With a late-season defeat of Moorpark, the Pirates tied for the conference title, the first of 18 consecutive WSC championships through the 2008 season.

As a sophomore, Venessa led the most productive Pirate volleyball team in school history. The Pirates were a perfect 18-0 in WSC play, and posted a 24-2 season record. Venessa was named the MVP of the Western State Conference and was a 1st Team All-State honoree. She also earned JC All-American status from the American Volleyball Coaches Association. She led the team into the State Tournament for the first time ever, helping VC to a record-setting 3rd Place finish.

When she returned from the state volleyball tournament, Venessa headed to the basketball court, where she earned her fourth 1st-Team all-conference nod. She led the team in rebounding and was second on the team in scoring as VC posted a perfect 8-0 WSC record en route to a 25-7 season. The Pirates won their second straight conference title. Venessa is one of 13 players to appear in the team's top 20 in both the career scoring and rebounding lists, despite playing in at least 15 fewer games than any of the other 12 players.

Venessa earned a volleyball scholarship to Louisiana State University, where she was a star for the Tigers. She was named 2nd Team All-Southeastern Conference her junior year in leading the Tigers to a 26-9 record and a second place SEC finish. The Tigers had a final national ranking of no. 12 and advanced to the Sweet 16 of the 1992 NCAA Tournament. As a senior, Venessa earned 1st Team All-SEC honors in leading the team to a 21-16 mark. Although the Tigers did not make the NCAA Tournament, they did win the 1993 National Invitation Volleyball Tournament with a six-match winning streak to end the season. For good measure, Venessa played on the basketball team at LSU in the 1994-95 season, leading the Tigers in field goal percentage, shooting 46.9 percent (75-160) in 27 games.

Great Camp

The camp allows girls with athletic abilities to compete against older girls. That really brought out the competitor of our daughter and we love that!

Saw improvements!

My daughter seemed to learn a lot in a very short time which was wonderful. She was exhausted but felt she really got better in a short time.

Will be back next year

It starts off with the quote of the day, then builds to individual instruction and technique. Active the entire practice with excellent coaching. You can feel the love and passion of the game from the excellent coaching staff. We will be back next year.
