Rick Baleros

Co Head Coach

Rick will be returning to NW Reign for his second season with us. Rick brings strong fundamental training and a strategic focus to this coaching duo. He brings a strength of identifying the opponents strategy early and making adjustments with his team to successfully compete during tournament play.

Rick started playing volleyball in 7th Grade for Space Needle Volleyball Federation and continued to develop a love for the game through high school and well into college where he was a Libero for the University of Portland Men's team. After graduating from college, Rick moved to Tacoma to start his teaching career, but also began coaching where he coached the 16-National Team for Puyallup Juniors in 2013-2014. Following that season Rick assisted the 18-National Team from 2014-2016 at Lake Tapps Volleyball. While coaching club, he also was the Varsity Assistant at Life Center Academy.

In 2017, Rick moved back down to Portland where he continued his coaching career by assisting Clair Thiel (former NW Reign Coach) with the JV2 & JV Programs at Reynolds High School. Most recently, he took over the JV Program all while juggling his coaching role with the club team at the University of Portland.
When Rick isn't busy coaching athletes, he still spends a great deal of time playing the game. He plays throughout the year with various indoor & outdoor teams around the area. In addition, Rick is also a Wedding Photographer and travels quite a bit when he finds the time! WE are looking forward to having Rick return this year and share is knowledge and experiance with NW Reign's athletes.
