Diego (DiAgo) Rocha - 14s Head Coach
Coach Diego (DiAgo) is a very passionate volleyball player and coach, born in Cochabamba Bolivia. He was introduced to volleyball when he was in Middle School and quickly fell in love with the sport. By the time he reached High school he started playing on many leagues including college division leagues. While playing in Bolivia, he assisted coaching beach volleyball for elementary school kids.
Throughout the years in the US, his efforts to continue playing and being involved with volleyball led him to become a coach for the SYC elementary and middle school divisions for 3 years. He started playing in meetups where he met other players that loved the sport as much as he did and eventually met some of the coaches of the No Panic where he was invited to coach. He currently coaches for the LYV league and hosts open play volleyball games for adult beginner and intermediate players.
Coach DiAgo has a degree in Computer Science and Computer Drafting & Design, currently working as a software technician. His hobbies include family time, playing guitar, singing and grilling the meats! He currently resides in the Leesburg area with his wife and three children who are also very active in sports. When Coach Diago is not at the court teaching or playing, then he’s at the court cheering for his kids. Coach DiAgo's joined No Panic in 2019 and we're happy to have him on board!
