Amber Bennett

by Upper Hand in

Amber has coached every age group, level and gender possible; from hyper kindergartners to weekend warriors! She graduated from Tulane University in 2014 after playing on the indoor and beach volleyball teams and currently plays for the US Virgin Island National Beach Volleyball team. Amber moved to St Pete in 2015 after a teammate found out about Optimum Beach and she’s been hooked ever since! For the past 5 years, she has served in several positions (co-director, 14U indoor coach, a beach coach) and now operates the Optimum Beach social media pages, filling in as a coach when needed. 

Amber chose Optimum because of Director Pri Piantadosi-Lima’s coaching and playing bio and stays for the excellent physical and mental training, and sense of family. She believes even the tough practices are fun because of the camaraderie between all of the athletes and coaches.
