Head Coach: Ollie Semonis

Contact: 780.907.8007 or osemonis@gmail.com 

Coaching background: Over the last 6 seasons with FOG, Ollie has been Head Coach and Coordinator of the U13, U14, U15, U16  and U17 programs with multiple top 3 finishes in Alberta over that time including winning the U13 Provincial Championship in 2017 and finishing 4th at Nationals in 2019 at the U15 level. He had an outstanding all-star caliber roster for the U16 season and won gold at Premier #1 before COVID stopped a very promising season and another potential top Nationals result. In addition to FOG, Ollie helped coached at Grandview Heights Jr. High from 2016-2018, winning City Championships in '17 an '18.  He also previously assisted with the Strathcona High School Sr. Boys in the 90's for several seasons.

Playing Experience: Ollie began playing volleyball in Alberta in the mid 80's and enjoyed success at multiple levels including playing for Strathcona High School (1985-88), Team Alberta from 1986-89, Canada Games Championship in 1989, University of Alberta Golden Bears (1988-1993), Professionally in France with AS Monaco in 1994, multiple Senior Men's competitions with Volleyball Alberta and the World Master's Games in 2005 (silver). Over his years of playing, he received multiple all-star awards and was captain for Team Alberta, UofA Golden Bears and AS Monaco. He continued to play recreationally with the Edmonton Volleyball Association (Indoor and Beach) for many years until 2018, and now spend more time sharing my knowledge through coaching.

Coaching Philosophy: Sports should always be about having fun and making lifelong friends along the way. Success in not measured in the medals we win but rather the lessons we learn in our journey.
