Coach John Teifer

It is with a heavy heart that we share that Tampa Bay Raptor Coach "John" Teifer passed away early this morning. John joined the Tampa Bay Raptors in the fall of 2018. He came to us with a wealth of volleyball experience having been in leadership or Director's rolls at numerous clubs such as NVVA, VA Elite, Epic VBC, Sunwest VBC, Long Island Big Apple VBC and serving in assistant positions at LIU-Southhampton, San Diego State and Penn State. In addition he played volleyball at the "AA" level and coached professionally in France. John was know to be one of the best technical coaches around on a national level and he helped hundreds of players move on to the collegiate or professional level. He will truly be missed. John leaves behind a son and daughter Paul and Nikki. Nikki plays for the Raptors and has the condolences, love and support of all of her Raptor family. Lastly, John was a US Navy veteran having been a member of the SEALS. We thank him for his service.
