2020-2021 Season Head Coach: 14u Blue
Daniel Labrador II, aka “Lab,” picked up his first volleyball in 2001 and started training and playing more seriously in 2003 in Navarre Beach, FL. He moved to Okaloosa Island and continued playing and training there. Lab traveled all over the south playing in beach tournaments. Then, in 2006, he was invited to play indoor for the first time and fell in love with that game as well! He has been playing both indoor and beach ever since.
Lab started his coaching career in 2011 with ECVC coaching the 13’s team. In the same year, he was offered the assistant coaching position for Fort Walton Beach High School program and head coach of the Junior Varsity team. The next year, Lab took a 14’s Regional team and made them competitive, which lead to his promotion the year after to a strong 13’s National team. Since coming to 850 Elite, Lab has become a certified Gold Medal Squared coach.
Coach Lab starts his sixth season with 850 Elite this year, and we can’t wait to see how far he will lead his 15 Blue team in the 2018-2019 Season!!
