PAVBC is very excited to announce that we have a new Technical Director Clara Bonner to our coaching staff! Her daughter Ava has played for the club the past two seasons and we are so fortunate to have her running our ongoing camps and clinics this summer. For the fall she will coach our 13-1 Power team and help in the overall skill development across the board with all our teams. While your family has already been a part of ours, we are officially excited to welcome you on board.
Clara Bonner Bio:
Clara grew up in Texas and had a decorated youth volleyball career. State of Texas MVP, High School Volleyball State Champions, Club Volleyball 18 open division top 3 finish. Clara was a top 50 national high school volleyball recruit, and a high school 1st team All-American....She received a full division I athletic scholarship to the University of the Pacific, where under coach John Dunning's helm (Pacific, Stanford), her team ranked #1 in the country and also made a final four appearance.
Clara now calls the bay area home, after more than 20 years as an implant. She has spent her post- college life as an entrepreneur, cofounding and running an organic food company since 2002.
Recently Clara decided to rededicate herself to the sport that she credits with providing her opportunities in calculated risk-taking, team building, and grit! Having been a player with some of the most decorated coaches and teams in the US, Clara is looking forward to bringing her experience to PAVBC!
Clara has two children, Ava and Kurosh, who are current and (future:-) members of the PAVBC program.
Besides volleyball, Clara enjoys spending time with family, hikes in nature, yoga, and travel.
