"We would like to congratulate Lee Grisham on his retirement and recognize him for the outstanding accomplishments that he has achieved in the volleyball community. As one of the founding directors, he helped oversee the development of Austin Performance Volleyball and has been an integral part of our growth from a new club into the volleyball power that we are today. We started this club in 2007 with 10 teams and we now have over 50 teams and 500 athletes representing Austin Performance Volleyball. We could not have accomplished this without the dedication, passion, and energy that Lee Grisham brought to AP Volleyball.
Lee’s volleyball accomplishments speak for themselves. He led Wimberley High School to 9 state tournament appearances in his 15 years at the school. During that magical run, they won 6 state titles and established themselves as one of the most dominant athletic programs in the state. In his 29 years as a head coach he amassed a career record of 558-182. In 2004, he was named volleyball coach of the year by the National High School Coaches Association. He was also named state volleyball coach of the year by the Texas Sports Writers Association 5 times and Centex Volleyball Coach of the Year by the Austin Statesman in 2003, 2006, and 2007.
Lee retired from high school coaching in 2011 and put his full focus into developing Austin Performance Volleyball Club and growing Texas Girls Coaching Association. We all know he helped his athletes become better volleyball players and the connections he made with kids made him such an outstanding coach. He put just as much energy and excitement into helping his athletes become great students and citizens as he did with their volleyball careers. We will always value Lee for his passion and energy and he will forever be a part of the Austin Performance Volleyball family.
Please help us congratulate Lee Grisham on his retirement. We thank him for all his service!"
