Fortitude Beach is in their third season and has now gone year-round! Tim McHale will be heading up Fortitude Beach. Assistant coaches will include Kory Green and Tyler Jenkins. 

Tim McHale coached women’s indoor volleyball at Xavier for over 23 years and accumulated over 400 wins. Tim was head coach for Xavier for 12 years, winning 6 state titles, and another 4 as assistant in prior years. In 2012 Coach McHale stepped down to be able to spend more time with his family, but did not completely hang up coaching. Coach McHale became the assistant for Xavier women’s sand volleyball 2012- 2014, all 3 seasons culminating with state championships. In 2015 Tim stepped into the head coach position, leading Xavier to their next 3 consecutive state titles 2015-2017. Coach McHale has a true passion for the game and we are thrilled to provide the opportunity for players to train with and learn from one of the top coaches in the state. 

Kory Green is the varsity head coach for Boulder Creek High School beach program and was previously head coach for Desert Edge High School beach program. Tyler Jenkins is an assistant coach at Ottawa University in Surprise, AZ.
