Zach Underwood - 18 Green


Why I Coach

I absolutely love the sport of volleyball. I want to see the guys side of the game grow, especially in Colorado. I want the athletes to learn to coach themselves and each other by growing their game IQ so that they can fall in love with the sport and want to continue to play or coach.

Playing Experience

Team Colorado is delighted to welcome back TCV Alumni Zach Underwood as a coach for the boys program. Zach played for the TCV Boys program from 2016-2019. He was part of the first group of boys to compete for Team Colorado and helped build the program.  As a senior, he helped set the 18 Black team to a 10th place finish at the Winter Boys Volleyball Championship in Chicago, a 9th place finish at the Dennis Lafayta Boys Bid Tournament in St. Louis and two RMR Boys Power victories. 

As a high school athlete, Zach set the TCA and District 20 programs to three state tournament appearances and was named All-State three times. Zach participates in adult events including Colorado grass volleyball tournaments.
