HomeOvidiu Cornea

Ovi joined Lakeside Volleyball Club in the fall of 2019 when his two daughters made the move from a local club to LVC.  Although new to coaching the game of volleyball at the club level, Ovi brings a wealth of experience with respect to performing in Elite Amateur Sports.

Ovi earned his Bachelor Degree in Physical Education and Sport from Bacau University in Romania (1998-2002).  In addition to earning his BA, Ovi became an Elite Rowing Athlete for Romania and was part of the Romanian National and Olympic Rowing Teams from 1995 through 2005.  He also became a Certified Rowing Coach in Romania once his amateur rowing days concluded.

Ovi is now in the process of getting his NCCP Volleyball Development Coach certification and we are ecstatic to have Ovi as one of our Club coaches.  His career as an Elite Rowing athlete is invaluable to our club as he is one of the few that can relay his knowledge and experiences of performing at the highest level of sport to our young athletes as they learn and grow with the game.
