David Tindal

17 Elite - Head Coach

Coach David Tindal returns to PVA for his 6th coaching season.

David began playing beach volleyball after graduating from Florida State University.  An elementary school teacher, David spent fifteen years traveling around the state of Florida, playing beach volleyball tournaments during the summer.  In order to train for tournaments, he built a professional sand court in his backyard and this is where he met his wife, Kimberly.  David and Kim coached the Freshman, JV, and Varsity teams at Deltona High School for five years.  During this time they founded and coached for Deltona Volleyball Club.  Their efforts resulted in a program that produced a 5 Star Conference Championship team with a 28-4 record.   They won their district's regional championship and advanced to the Elite Eight, before losing to the eventual state champions.

Many of their former players have graduated college and are now coaching their own volleyball teams.  David and Kim gave up coaching volleyball when their daughters were born, so they could devote their time to raising their children.

As their daughters grew older, David served as volunteer coach at the DeLand YMCA, before coaching an 11U volleyball team for Blazers.   In the past 5 years at Power Volleyball Academy, David and Kim's teams have won 233 matches and lost 31.
