17 Elite - Assistant Coach
Coach Kim Tindal returns to begin her 6th coaching season at PVA.
Kim played volleyball at Deltona High School, where she led her team to a Final Four appearance as a setter. When she began her teaching career at Galaxy Middle School, Kim started an after school volleyball program for her students. The following year she and her husband, David, took over the Freshman, JV, and Varsity teams at Deltona High School.
Throughout their time at Deltona High School they produced a 5 Star Conference Championship team with an overall record of 28-4 and a Junior Varsity team that finished 20-0. They also founded and coached for Deltona Volleyball Club. Many of their former players have since graduated college and several are coaching their own teams at the high school and club levels.
Kim and David decided to stop coaching when their daughters were born, so they could focus on raising their children. When their children expressed an interest in participating on a volleyball team they began volunteer coaching at the DeLand YMCA and then coached an 11U volleyball team for Blazers.
In the past 4 years at Power Volleyball Academy, David and Kim's teams have won 233 matches and lost 31.

In college I majored in elementary education. Currently I teach fourth grade in Volusia county and I’m working on my masters degree in instructional technology. I enjoy coaching for the same reasons I enjoy teaching, I love helping students and athletes reach their greatest potential. This year, I am working on building a conditioning program here at Power. I have been active in strength training since I was a senior in high school.
