As a club director for Mountain One VBC, Jessica Rahn had a goal: to grow the game of volleyball in Montana. In 2016, she met Tim Jensen through a mutual acquaintance and found an elite-level coach with a passion for volleyball equal to her own. Together, they worked to create opportunities for Montana athletes to learn from high caliber coaches from across the nation, and so began Montana Volleyball Showcase. Over the years, the event offerings have adjusted to serve the needs of our audience and so, when Jade Schmidt joined the team in 2019 and suggested a recruiting showcase, we decided to give it a try. The response from athletes and colleges in the inaugural year was overwhelming and we are so excited to continue offering this event and accommpanying camp for years to come!
Jade Schmidt is a former 4-year starter and 2-year captain at the University of Montana. She brings 10+ years of successful experience coaching at the high school and club levels in Montana, including four top-3 finishes at the Montana Class A State Volleyball Tournament with a State Championship win in 2014.
