Head Coach - Alex Sanders

My name is Alex Sanders, and I live here in BLR with my son (Beckett) and our pets. I have been in the Springs about 8 years now, and I am so excited to be joining the BLPA coaching staff and BLR community! I grew up just outside of Boulder, playing high school and club volleyball, and began my coaching career as a volunteer assistant for the nearby middle school during my senior year. Coaching runs in my family (both my parents and siblings have been/are coaches,) so of course I fell in love with coaching and have enjoyed it ever since! This will be my 9th year as a head coach, and I am really looking forward to sharing my love of volleyball with the players and the community here in BLR, and building this program to be one of the best! When I am not coaching, I like to spend my free time hanging out with family, being outdoors, traveling, and cooking. I am grateful and excited to be here and can’t wait to celebrate and share our program success with this amazing community! Go Stallions!


Assistant Coach - Kendra England

My name is Kendra England and I moved to Colorado Springs two years ago with my husband, Craig. I am a social studies teacher at BLPA and am excited to be coaching volleyball for the first time this year. I grew up in a small town in Southeast Colorado where I played volleyball throughout high school and have never stopped loving the sport. I am excited to share my love for volleyball with our program and continue to grow it. I love to hike and be outdoors with my husband in my free time. I’m looking forward to the season and growing our program! Go Stallions!
