Kendall Bilbruck

Kendall Bilbruck is Mamba Sports Academy’s Volleyball Administrative Coordinator. She graduated from Fountain Valley High School in 2010 where she played varsity point guard for the basketball team for one year and a varsity setter on the volleyball team for three years. Kendall also won the Coach’s Award both her junior and senior for volleyball. She then went on to study at Cal State Channel Islands and graduated in 2014 where she continued to coach.

If Kendall could pattern her style of play after a famous athlete, it would be Lisa Leslie. “I was fortunate enough to be able to work with her a bit once I was out of college. She is incredibly intelligent and extremely hard working. I was able to see the passion and dedication she put into her everyday life first hand. Whether it was with her career as a business women, her passion for education and sports, or the love for her family, she is someone I will always and continue to admire and strive to be.”

Kendall loves coaching because she is “able to have a positive impact on the players and be able to teach them lessons that will not only be beneficial on the court, but in life as well.” When she’s is not coaching, she loves to paint and sketch.
