Dave Pontes: 15-1

Dave is returning to Turlock Crush for his 5th season as head coach after being the 17-1 head coach last season finishing in the Gold division and receiving the 1st ever Crush Junior Olympics bid in 2014.

He has been playing for over 30 years and was the 1st coach to teach the game of volleyball to his daughter, Kristen Pontes-Christian.

He helped coach the 14-1 Crush team to an area league championship in 2012, as well as to a Gold Division seeding in 2014. Dave has also helped the Pitman High School program win 6 consecutive CCC championships working individually with hitters and volunteering his time until the 2017 season when he took over the varsity assistant coach position.

He helped start the Hughson Hurricanes, a travel softball club, while Coach Pontes was in junior high and has coached softball and/or volleyball for about 20 years. He is also a returning member as President of the Turlock Crush board.

Dave is looking forward to another fun and exciting club season coaching the 15-1 team!
