Heather Curley: Junior Board Rep (Elected 2016 for one-year term)
Heather Curley was elected on Aug. 14, 2016, at the Junior Club Director meeting to serve on the Badger Region Board of Directors as the Junior Rep with voting powers within the organization.
Curley began her coaching career in the year 2000, and has coached almost every level (both boys and girls) since then. She was IMPACT certified in 2012 and became USA Volleyball CAP I certified in 2014.
She currently is the girls varsity assistant coach at Kettle Moraine High School and serves as the club director at Revolution Volleyball Academy (formerly Kettle Moraine Volleyball Academy). She continues to stay involved in the sport all year long by running camps and clinics.
A native of Jefferson, Wis., Curley has also been a referee for middle schools, high schools and adult leagues through the years. In her own words: “As a 1996 graduate from Jefferson High School, I have always felt my education was enhanced through the participation in the athletic program. The experience I had, the friends I made and the skills I learned as a student athlete have helped me through my college and now professional years. I believe the athletic program offers valuable lessons about teamwork, cooperation, endurance, persistence, patience, hard work, competition and how to deal with success and failure. All of these lessons are important as the students learn to be adults and pursue education, careers and relationships.”
Curley also implemented KMVA Cares, a community outreach program to help character development. One of the unique projects they do each year is “Birthday in a Box.” Each box contains a cake mix, frosting and several themed items to make up a complete birthday. They go to various Waukesha County food pantries.
She and her husband, Sean, who is also active in the volleyball community, have three children: Payton, Emily and Lillian.
