Renata Lechien

Elite Beach Coach

Renata is originally from Manhattan, Kansas, and began playing volleyball at the young age of 10 years old. She has loved every part of the game, from basic skills to technical concepts and advanced strategy at the higher levels.
She turned her passion for playing indoors to the sand where she has competed on the women's Open circuit for the past 3 seasons. She has finished high in the Queen of the Beach series and the local mountain tournaments across the state.
Renata has been playing volleyball for 20 years. She was recruited and competed for Baker University in Kansas where in her senior campaign she earned the Co-Defender of the Year. She has been coaching for 9 years. 8 of them have been indoors, and 1 year on the beach.
"I love teaching the strategic side of volleyball. It is the part that interests me the most. My experience of learning the beach game has contributed to my positive outlook on the game. I look forward to sharing the way I look at it with younger athletes."
