15-1 HEAD COACH
Gary Aromin's playing career started when he was thirteen years old at his middle school in Dededo, Guam. A few years later, during his time at Okkodo High School, Gary was a four year letter winner and was included in the All-Island Selections three times. He helped his team win the Island Championship back to back in 2014 and 2015, earning the Championship Game MVP in 2014.
He was also active in the Guam National Team programs by training on the Youth National Team from 2013-2016, and the National Team from 2016-2018 where he represented Guam in the Micronesian Games in the island of Yap in 2018.
Gary’s collegiate playing career started at Erskine college where he joined the Flying Fleet in 2017 as an outside hitter, but later transitioned into the libero position. Some notable accomplishments include making Academic All Conference from 2018-2020 and making the All Conference team in 2020.
As a coach, Gary believes that a strong foundation of fundamental skill is important for the growth of any volleyball player. Gary has spent the past 3 seasons at A5 Boys Volleyball Club coaching the 14-1s team with this belief in mind. Some notable achievements include qualifying to play in the Open Division at USAV Nationals in 2022, a first place finish at Florida Fest in 2022, and a third place finish at AAU Nationals in 2023.
Aside from the club volleyball scene, Gary Aromin is currently on his second season with the Emory University Eagles as an assistant coach where he helped his team win the UAA Conference Title in 2022.
Gary is very excited to be accompanied by Coach Jensen Corder for the third season in a row at A5 Boys Volleyball Club to take on the new role of the 15-1s head coach!
