Coach Gabriel Arradaza

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Coach Gabriel Arradaza.  

Gabe has been a valued member of our GVA family since 2005.  Throughout his many seasons with us he coached hundreds of players. 

Once his daughter, Jeanelle, transitioned to HS volleyball, Gabe continued coaching for GVA.  Gabe embodied the spirit of our association and is an example of our motto, “For the LOVE of the Game!”.  

He will be truly missed.
