Newman to lead Charlotte Volleyball
South Texas native Tina Garza Newman will no longer be a stranger to Brush Country volleyball, as she takes over as the leader in Charlotte. New head volleyball coach Newman is out on the court preparing the girls for what she is determined will be a successful season. As the 2012-2013 season has begun, Charlotte has already showed plenty of positives despite sporting a very youthful ball club, which lacks experience on the court.
Newman is a 1989 graduate of Poteet High where she competed in volleyball, basketball and track. Newman attended Texas A&M University-San Antonio and in December 2010, graduated with her Bachelors Degree in kinesiology with a minor in English.
Coach Newman first began her educational career as a Physical Education aide at the Pleasanton Intermediate Campus. After being a P.E aide in Pleasanton, she moved her set of skills and education to Southside I.S.D. where she also served as an aide.
When she was offered the Head Volleyball position in Charlotte, she was excited to come and attempt to make a difference by improving the Charlotte Volleyball program.
“I feel honored and excited to be part of the Trojan community. I am determined to do the best job I can. Failure is not an option,” stated Newman.
Her coaching philosophy is to help students to be responsible and independent individuals with a desire for lifelong learning. Newman wants to implement in her team to be determined, do their best, set goals and strive to accomplish those goals.
When asked who were the biggest influences in her life Tina stated, “the opportunity God has blessed me with has been my biggest influence.”
She also gave thanks to the educators she worked alongside and to her family for all the sacrifices they made. Get ready Trojanettes, you have an upbeat hard working coach in the building and she is ready to shake things up and is aiming for positive results on the hardwood.
