Michelle Moldowan

Master Coach

Michelle has been involved with the sport of volleyball for almost 35 years. She enjoyed a variety of sports through her school years, but once University came along, she had to make a decision between volleyball & basketball.
“I chose volleyball, do not regret my decision one bit and have never looked back,” she said.
“So many great accomplishments & memories were made thanks to this amazing sport. One of my favorite highlights was living over in Europe & playing the sport I love…VOLLEYBALL.”
“I am passionate about volleyball & always hopes this carries over to the young ladies I get to coach. Sport is important for girls at this age, it helps them to gain confidence & it teaches them great life skills. Love to work with kids of all ages in a FUN & positive learning environment.”

    Elyse Ollivier - Head Coach

      Elyse Ollivier

      Head Coach

      I am currently a student at the University of Calgary in my 5th year of economics. At 22 years old, this is only my second year coaching club volleyball. I played club volleyball with 403 Selects from U15 to U18. Prior to my first season of club volleyball, and during my time with 403 Selects, I was also a dancer. After graduating high school, I attended Acadia University in Nova Scotia for my first year. I intended to play varsity volleyball there but was unable to as a result of an injury. Instead, I decided to coach the university U16/U17 club team there. After transferring to the University of Calgary and taking a couple of years off from volleyball, I’ve finally made my grand return to the sport. I am so happy to be back to my home club team, coaching 13U team black. There is nothing like coming back home!

            Tesa Weber-Larsen - Assistant Coach

              Tesa Weber-Larsen

              Assistant Coach

              Tesa is a first-year coach with 403 Selects and brings over 30 years of competitive playing experience.  She grew up in a small BC community where volleyball was highly valued and supported. She played senior high school volleyball as a 16-year-old setter and came home with a gold medal at Provincials!

              This spurred her desire to pursue her post secondary volleyball dream. She was selected and represented the Mount Royal College Cougars from 1989-1991 under the coaching staff of Marla Watson and assistant coach Marlene Venne.

              Tesa then moved to Eastern Canada to complete a Bachelor of Arts and Education at l’Université du Québec à Chicoutimi.

              As a young teacher, she worked with the senior girls volleyball programs in Golden and Osoyoos BC.  However, with the arrival of her own family, she stepped out for several years.

              Tesa continues to work in Education and hopes that she can share the joy of learning and her passion for volleyball with the 13U girls this season.
