Coach: Julie Heatherly


Lions Juniors 12-1/13-1/Youth and Lesson Coordinator

I grew up playing volleyball in Western Springs.  I played 4 years of HS volleyball at Lyons Township as an outside hitter and setter and went on to play and start for 4 years at Troy University, a D1 school in Troy, AL. 

I have my undergraduate degree in business and my graduate degree in elementary education.

This is my 17th season here at Lions Juniors.  I have coached all age groups, including the volley tots, and the 12’s-17’s.  I was the student assistant at Troy University after I finished my 4 years of playing and then went on to work as the graduate assistant at The University of Illinois-Chicago. Following college, I coached high school at Immaculate Heart of Mary and Nazareth Academy for several years.

On top of coaching our 12-1 team, I run and coordinate our lesson program for 1st Alliance/Lions Jrs, which has grown to over 300 players.

Finally, I assist our 13-1 team whenever I am not with our 12’s

Volleyball is my passion and I love sharing that passion with all of our players here at Lions Jrs. and 1st Alliance!
