Emily Danitz has been coaching volleyball at Kent Denver since 2012, with nine years of experience prior to her time here. She believes high school athletics provides young athletes with opportunities to learn valuable life skills beyond the court, such as time management, work ethic, leadership and the ability to think outside of oneself and about the welfare of the team.
“I strive to foster athletes to both improve athletically and be aware of the multitude of other skills they are gaining along the way,” says Coach Danitz.
During her tenure as head coach, Coach Danitz built the program into a playoff contender, advancing to regionals four times since 2016 in one of the state’s toughest leagues.
Coach Danitz—who played Division I volleyball at the University of Nevada—is also a full-time member of our science department. She teaches Infectious Disease and Epidemiology, Chemistry and more in the Upper School.
