Karin was born and raised in Beaverlodge, AB. Her family has always been involved in sport. She competed at a competitive level in figure skating, swimming and played school sports of all kinds while growing up. Karin, along with a few other parents, recognized the absence of a club volleyball program in Beaverlodge. After that there have been countless hours of re-establishing the club, getting NCCP certified, and becoming a certified coach with Alberta Volleyball. With Karin’s commitment, there are now 4 volleyball teams and over 40 kids playing Rebels Club Volleyball in Beaverlodge. Karin’s volunteer commitment helps teach volleyball skills and a passion for the game, leading their team to gold.
