Kat Niksto Leaves SBVC

Dear SBVC Community,

As many of you know, I grew up playing for the Club and have truly enjoyed the many seasons and teams I played on and later had the opportunity to coach, so it is with a heavy heart that I write this letter.  After much thought and careful consideration, I have decided to step down from my position as the Administrative Director of the Santa Barbara Volleyball Club.  I will continue to be involved in the volleyball community as a coach at Laguna Blanca, coaching private lessons, and am happy to announce that I have accepted the Head Coach position of the UCSB Women’s Club team that is ranked 5th Nationally.

I have sincerely enjoyed working with and getting to know all the families, players and coaches that have been a part of the Santa Barbara Volleyball Club.  The players are dedicated hard working young athletes, and I know hold a very bright future not only in the game, but in life as well. I hope I have had a positive impact in the lives of those I have coached, as I know they have definitely had a positive impact on mine.

Thank you again for your commitment to the Club and for putting your trust and confidence in me.  You can reach me at
