Crawford to Succeed Finn as Club Director 

The Kidron Volleyball Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Mike Crawford as director, effective July 1, 2016. He will succeed John Finn, who served as club director since its founding in 2007.

Crawford is a former player and a very well respected volleyball coach. He was also a standout soccer player and currently serves as the assistant coach of the boys soccer team at Wooster High School. He has been a coach at Kidron for the past four years. Prior to that, he coached at Wooster Elite for four years.

Finn helped to found the club in 2007. He plans to continue coaching J.O. at Kidron and high school at Triway. “It has been very rewarding to be a part of this club for the last 10 years,” said Finn. “I believe we have helped hundreds of girls develop their volleyball skills and raise the overall caliber of play in Wayne County during the past decade.”

Jay Haver, who played a role in founding the club, will stay on as chief financial officer and administrator. “Jay has done a phenomenal job during the past decade,” said Finn. “His tireless efforts, his keen insight, and his invaluable wisdom have been a guiding light for this club. We are delighted that he will remain on in this position.”

As for the appointment of Crawford, Finn said, “Mike is the ideal candidate for the position. He is extremely knowledgeable and exceptionally organized. He has an outstanding work ethic, excellent people skills, and an imaginative vision for the club. He also is an excellent leader and will take the club to new heights in the years to come.”

Crawford expressed excitement and enthusiasm for his role as club director. “I am humbled and tremendously honored that John trusts me to take over the club as its next director,” he said, “John has assured me he will be there to help as I get acclimated to my new role, but I look forward to the challenge, and am excited to work with Jay and all the coaches in the coming seasons.”
