I am the founder and director of the KC Lady Jaguars VBC. I played volleyball 3 yrs in high school and have played in several competitive leagues around the city. I've coached volleyball for 12 years, girls basketball for 8 years and worked as youth counselor at church for over 28+ yrs. I know the calling placed on my life and it is to mentor/teach/minister to our youth and I do this with great humility. I am IMPACT and CAP Level I certified. I've had the privilege of watching many of my players grow and develop into dynamic athletes, scholars and young ladies. I work to educate our players and parents on the recruiting process and assist in any way I can to help our athletes reach their goals of playing in college. Several have gone on to play at the next level with great success.

Mikki Akins (Club Mom 3yrs)
My Love for volleyball started at a young age while playing at the Orville area Boys and Girls Club. I played throughout middle school and high school in Orville, OH. The love spread to my girls as they both enjoy playing for their schools and the KC Lady Jags. We have been apart of the Jag Family for 6 years. I have been serving as the Team/Club mom for 3 of those years........and counting.
Rhonda Punches (first year)
In 2017, The Lady Jags added Coach Rhonda Punches to the roster. As an all-around athlete, she was a 4-year letter winner in volleyball, basketball and track at Wilson High School, Wilson KS. During her Sophomore through Senior years, she received All-Conference honors in both volleyball and basketball. Standing at only 5'3'' tall, Punches etched the most kills, blocks, and digs on her volleyball team during her junior and senior year. Although she chose to play basketball in college, she returned to volleyball when her daughter took interest in the sport. After coaching numerous successful seasons in city leagues, Coach Punches is excited to add her experience, passion and tenacity to the Lady Jags Volleyball Club.
Rhonda Fletcher (2yrs)
I have played competitive volleyball since middle school and some college. I'm currently actively playing both indoor and sand volleyball for local adult clubs. I've coached private sessions as requested since 2003, but I officially started coaching club volleyball in 2008. I love this sport and watching the girls develop skills they didn't know they had. Volleyball does more than just develop skills it develops character and sportsmanship two very important qualities in life. I've been apart of the KC Lady Jags family since 2006. Both my daughters have played with the Lady Jags; Na'la (6 yrs and now coaching) and Kyla (4 yrs). I'm looking forward to coaching with The Lady Jaguars and passing along my knowledge of the game.
Na'La Lawrence (2yrs)
My name is Na'La and I played with the Jags from 2005-2011. I’ve coached alongside Coach Webb since 2009. I went on to play collegiate volleyball for Missouri Valley College. After graduating college I joined the Air Force where I continued to play on the recreation league. Now I have returned back to my home team to assist in training the youth to receive scholarship opportunities that were opened to me from being apart of the KC Lady Jaguars.
Rachelle Hooks-Locke (2yrs)
Better known as Coach Chelle. Married for 10 years. We have 6 children and 7 grand babies. I played volleyball in high school. And I have always enjoyed watching sports. As my husband and I began empty-nesters he encouraged me to give back by coaching at a basic level.
I have been coaching the Junior Jags for 2 years. As the coach of the youngest players, my goal is to encourage good sportsmanship and a competitive effort to learn the game of volleyball. Team building is another goal as a coach, as it is important for the ladies to enjoy and respect each other. My hope is to prepare them to be coach-able by listening, respecting and learning from their coach (in any sport). I enjoy teaching the little ones as we learn from each other.
