Erin Davis

Assistant Coach

Erin is entering her third season coaching with 403 Selects. She previously coached 18u in 2015, 16u in 2016, 18U in 2018 and is excited to be back at the juvenile level with 17u. She will be coming into the 2017 season after coaching her first high school season at Western Canada High School as an assistant to Ernie Tsu.

Originally from Strathmore, she played for Strathmore High school for three years as a middle blocker and was honoured to be named team captain in her grade twelve year. As a 403 alumni, some of Erin’s best memories are the two years she played for 403 Selects in her 17u and 18u seasons. After graduating in 2012, she played at Minot State, an NCAA Div II school, for two seasons. Erin is excited to be back in Calgary and is focusing on graduating with a BA in English this year and pursuing a degree in education afterwards with end goal of teaching high school English.

Erin loves coaching and hopes to have a fun filled and competitive season while helping athletes strive to reach their full potential.

    Matt Greenshields - Mentor Coach

      Matt Greenshields

      Assistant Coach

      Matt joins 403 Selects this season after finishing up his club career. He was relatively late to the sport of volleyball, having been a national-level baseball pitcher. The experience of high school volleyball at Foothills Composite made him shift his focus.

      Matt spent 3 seasons playing for the Foothills Volleyball Club, taking on the role of a team captain. Along with high school and club, he played beach volleyball during the summers, winning several medals at the 18U level.

      Although he had offers to play post-secondary, Matt opted to remain in the area and focus on pursuing a B. Comm at U of C. He is excited for this opportunity to develop as a coach.
