    Jim Thompson - Founder, Positive Coaching Alliance

    “There are only two groups of people whose job is to win games,” says Thompson. “Coaches and players. Parents have a much more important job: to guide their child’s character development.”

    2008 US Women's National Team Asst. Coach
    2011 Girls’ Select A2 Head Coach

    Do you have any advice to offer parents? Getting your kids involved in team sports is a gift you give them for life. Volleyball is a game that instills confidence, commitment, teamwork, strategic thinking and so much more. Once they’re in sports, parents can never be too positive when supporting them. After a great game or a rough match, players are looking for positivity and understanding and support. Nothing beats a hug from mom and dad.

    Kids don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

    Sport: Volleyball 

    Jersey Number: 9

    The junior from  Poughquag, N.Y.  is currently the Keene State volleyball team’s leader in points. Silveri  has 118 points in only 12 games. That’s about 10 points per game. Silveri’s volleyball career started in seventh grade and continued on through travel teams, her high school team and now KSC.

    “In seventh grade I just randomly decided to play volleyball. I was also playing softball but volleyball was more exciting,” Silveri said.

    Three years ago when Silveri came to KSC, the volleyball team recruited nine freshman, including Silveri.

    Head Coach Bob Weiner said right away that offensively, Silveri had the right stuff. Silveri’s offensive talents earned her the title Co-Offensive Player of the Year in 2013.
