Aerianna Smith

Aerianna Smith

 I’m Coach Aerianna! I am originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I moved to Florida in 2019 and transferred to Florida Atlantic University. I then moved over to this side of the state and found my coaching journey starting at HVA. This will be my 3rd club season at Hurricanes, where I have coached 17/18 girls, 17 boys and ran tropical storms. Due to my previous experience coaching many age groups I would say I am easily able to switch my coaching style based on the athletes age and ability. I have been the head coach at Winthrop College Prep Academy for both Girls and Boys Varsity volleyball for going on 3 years now. In high school I played club and school volleyball. I was an all around player, but my main focus was a setter. I currently play beach volleyball in adult leagues and pick up. My goal is to continue to coach and play and grow the love of the sport while teaching each athlete life skills and to find confidence to be the best version of themselves.

She is a HVA alumni that went on to play college volleyball on a full ride scholarship. She works one on one with those players interested in collegian athlete preparation. She brings to the club a high level, high intensity coaching experience and encourages those on all levels to achieve positive athlete mentality.

MK Gibson

MK Gisbson

I’m Coach MK! I started playing volleyball in 2012 and I immediately knew it was the sport for me.  I moved down to Florida in 2014, where I began to play for our Club Director, Brian Adams, at East Bay High School.  That is when my volleyball career began to really take off.  I learned so much through Coach Brian, that by senior year it led me to a college scholarship.  I played collegiate volleyball for 2 years at Daytona State College which was an incredible experience. Since then I have had a sweet baby boy named Mylan who is my absolute world, and also the mascot for my teams! Coaching here at HVA has brought me back full circle with volleyball and I couldn’t feel more blessed to be in the position I am in today.  Go Hurricanes!!
