Today's Inductee Spotlight: KENT ANDREWS
It is entirely possible, that no one has committed as much time to
coaching and mentoring in B.C.’s volleyball community than Kent Andrews. Kent was first introduced to the sport of volleyball in 1949 at Willington Beach (Powell River, B.C.) on a grass court that was set up by adults, many of whom served in World War II, and the game has been with him ever since. Along the way, Kent has touched many lives, coaching various high school teams, performance teams, at UVic and as part of the first Team BC Program in 1973, coaching the girls team. Kent would go on to lead them to Gold at the 1975 Canada Winter Games in Lethbridge, Alta. He was also instrumental in bringing the Pacific Rim Championships and is the first Canadian coach to lead a Canadian team (Team BC) to a win over Japan in sanctioned event. Kent has also officiated at nearly every level of volleyball and completed his Master’s Degree thesis on “Teaching
Volleyball Skills to Beginners”. Accomplishments

“Learn to honor and appreciate the process”
Wowee what a day of racing it was yesterday.
Worlds Sprints yarns the level was extra 🙌🏽 I made it through my heat to the semis and then final (totally did not think I would make final). Ended up coming in 9th overall.
To say I am not disappointed would be a lie and this page is all about sharing my journey.
When it mattered I made more mistakes, and the others paddled their A game.
Might not have been the result au was after but the gains au have made in the process are huge.
Pretty stoked to be in it. Taking away the lessons and keeping moving forward.
Moving forward with a will to succeed rather than a fear of failure.
Thanks to everyone who has supported me along the way. Much aroha x
Motherhood. Single motherhood particularly. When we were in Mexico we bonded ✨ so tight she didn’t want even granny to pick her up when we came back home. And here I am crushing working on my biz, and I missed her first loose steps because ... she was in daycare 😩. I am DETERMINED to leave this crazy society. Like, even the purest and giving act of breastfeeding is seen as weird, because... she’s a toddler and toddlers don’t nurse and they sleep all night, right? I just want to be the best mom that i possibly can be to her. She makes me move in every way. Thanks for making me a better, more present and more loving person. 🧜🏻♀️💫 📸 @lunavandoorne#normalizebreastfeeding
