Nike Volleyball Camp Director Paige Gantar named Club Coach of the Year
Paige Gantar, Nike Volleyball Camp Director and Elite Volleyball Academy Head Coach, is named the 2022 16s Club Coach of the Year by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.

Previously, Gantar was awarded the “Thirty Under 30 High School Award” in 2021 by AVCA, which honors high school coaching talent.
Gantar’s team was ranked 39th in the 16 National at USAV for the 2022 season. In addition, her team acquired many accomplishments over the past year including Ozark Challenge 17s Silver Champions, Memphis Challenge 17s Premier Runner-up, Battle at the Fort 16s Gold Champions, Volley in the Rock 17s Gold Champions, Delta Bid Qualifier 1st place winners, and Ozark Champions Cup 16/17s Silver Winners.
Gantar has been coaching club volleyball for the past 12 seasons, she is the Head Varsity Coach at Episcopal Collegiate school, and has an impressive background as a collegiate volleyball player. Gantar received a full athletic scholarship to the University of Arkansas-Little Rock. She finished her senior year at the University of Central Arkansas, leading the team to an undefeated season and holding the overall highest hitting percentage as a middle blocker.
In the summer, Coach Gantar will host a Nike Volleyball Camp at Episcopal Collegiate School, where she is the head varsity coach. Athletes from all over are invited to train under her elite coaching.
