April Carroll, Director/Recruiting Coordinatorcoachaprilga5@gmail.com | Download bio
April Carroll obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Norfolk State University graduating magna cum laude and earned her Masters of Science degree in Chemistry from Loyola University Chicago graduating summa cum laude. When she moved to Georgia, she continued her education by obtaining a Regulatory Affairs Certicate from the University of Georgia. She has been in the animal, cosmetic or the biologics pharmaceutical industry for thirteen years.
April has been playing volleyball for over twenty years. During college, her hard work provided her the honor of being named Female Athlete of the Year and was presented the award by Mike Tirico from ESPN. Along with other awards, she was named MVP for 2 consecutive years and on the All-Academic team during her entire volleyball tenure.
During her eleven years of coaching, April has trained numerous athletes to play at the next level including Marquette, University of Kentucky, University of Miami and the University of Cincinnati.
In between coaching and playing, Coach April still finds the time to be the offical scorekeeper for Kennesaw State University since their inaugural year of 2006.
A graduate of West Point with a master's degree from Stanford University, Michael served in the Army for five years before entering the commercial real estate business in 1981. Currently working as the principal/owner of Fetchstone Real Estate Services, he is also a veteran club volleyball parent, having put two athletes through the A5 system. Responsible for the administration and business operations of all three clubs within the A5 Family, he has been Club Director since 2008.
Now an empty-nester, Michael has more time to devote to volleyball activities. He has been at the helm of A5 through the creation of its two sister clubs, GA5 and A5 South, and he is responsible for the development of both Southern Volleyball Center and Peachtree City Volleyball Center. Says Fletcher, "Prep volleyball in Georgia has changed fundamentally since my oldest daughter first tried out for a team ten years ago, and A5 has been at the forefront of that change. While we are all proud of what the organization has accomplished to date, we are still hungry because we know that can do so much more. I am excited about my role with the A5 Family as I firmly believe that our best years are yet to come."
