By Jen Cleaveland, 10/15/19, 9:45PM EDT


High Street Athletics is excited to welcome Coach Kenny Brokaw to the family!  Kenny will join us as the Lenawee Site Director and Head coach and brings with him a wealth of multisport coaching experience in addition to his education background as a teacher. 


”We are very excited to add such an ambitious, up-and-coming coach to our staff! Kenny will do an amazing job in Lenawee County as he is a native alumni of Onsted High School and knows the area well and has a wealth of variety in his experiences through his young career.  Kenny is eager to bring new ideas to the staff as well as take the next step in his coaching career with new connections through mentors, colleagues, teammates and families,”  says Lenawee County native and former University of Georgia/Blissfield High School player and High Street Managing Partner Kilee Goetz.


As the 2018 Volleyball Regional Coach of the Year, Kenny is skilled at developing both skills and confidence in his teams.  


“I am overjoyed to join forces with High Street as the Lenawee County Site Director.  High Street’s mission to bring top level volleyball to Lenawee is something that I can easily get behind.  I want to thank Kilee for the opportunity to be part of this awesome team.  I’m excited to jump right in and get to work for our kids,” says Kenny.


The Lenawee County location of High Street Athletics is growing quickly as it responds to the overwhelming need to bring quality volleyball training to the area.


Kilee shares that Kenny will be taking on duties in his new position that will allow the club to flourish, assisting in the day-to-day duties of the company, in all locations as well as grow individually in the coaching profession.


“We cannot wait for Kenny to hit the ground running, this week, in learning the ins and outs of running a location, and club, as well as implementing new programming and resources to the current curriculum,” says Jen Cleaveland, Managing Partner.


Please join us in welcoming Kenny to the team and family and if you are interested in joining our Lenawee County team, please contact Kenny or the senior administrative staff.
