Christi Etches

by Upper Hand in

A former Honduran National Beach Volleyball athlete, Christi competed in NORCECA tournaments throughout North and Central America, Central American and the Caribbean Games and the Central American Games.

Former dual sport D1 athlete at USF, Soccer and Track and Field.

She graduated from USF in 2007 and moved home to Roatan, Honduras where she worked both as a scuba diving instructor and as an environmental educator at the Roatan Marine Park, a local Non-profit, as well as training as a National athlete.

She has recently moved back to Tampa Bay with her family and she’s excited to get into the Beach Volleyball scene!
She enjoys being outdoors, wood working, cooking and just hanging out with good people!

While playing in NORCECA she heard about Pri and Optimum Beach. Our reputation and the results she saw from fellow athletes sealed the deal for her. According to Chrsiti, she knew that if she was ever back in Florida that is who she would train with.

In addition to getting back into training herself, she is excited and grateful to be able to share her love and passion for the game and the life lessons that come with it with the next generation.
