    Coach Kirsten “Kirt” Day returned to Mt. Hood as the head coach in the Spring of 2021. Coach Day played for Mt. Hood Community College in 1983 & 1984 under Dorian Harris and Terry Neuberger-Folen. "I loved playing at Mt. Hood. I have such wonderful memories, from the players, coaches and the 20-0 record we earned for both seasons."

    Head Coach Kirsten Day

    In 2014 she earned an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice at Mt. Hood and 2016 she earned her Bachelor Degree in Human Development. "I feel like it’s come full circle for me, my time has come here at Mt. Hood, and I am so excited to be here, and given this opportunity."

    Coach Day started playing volleyball her sophomore year in high school along with club, and began coaching club her senior year in high school. This year (’21) will mark her 39th year of coaching in the Northwest. She has coached for four high school programs, one other college program, and she is currently the Director of North Clackamas Volleyball Club, and the head coach for the top 14s team. "Volleyball is my passion, and I truly love this sport and have been very fortunate to coach many players that have continued their volleyball careers to the college level, and one professionally."

    My coaching philosophy has evolved throughout the years, and I believe what is most important to a program to succeed on and off the court is teaching life skills, building trust, creating lifelong relationships, and creating an environment that is positive, interactive, and competitive. I want each player to be successful on the court, and in the classroom, knowing that they are supported as a student-athlete."

    Coach Day also works at part-time at the Portland International Airport. She has two grown sons and one grandson.
