Joanne “Coach Jo” Stephans is a performance and mindset coach. She can help you achieve your goals.  She has over 25 years of coaching experience in volleyball, basketball, track/field and swimming. Joanne was a decorated high school and college athlete herself. While coaching, Joanne has worked with athletes ranging from the youth recreational level up to those that have gone on to compete in the Olympics. Along with coaching, she taught at both the elementary and high school levels with a specialty in special education. Joanne is a wife and mother who is dedicated to running her family’s successful small business.

Upon noticing the need for her set of skills with her athletes and parents, Joanne made the transition from an on-the-court coach to a performance and mindset coach. Her goal is to help student athletes, parents and coaches through the many challenges that come along with balancing everyday life and sports. 

Joanne’s personal athletic journey, years of coaching and teaching others helps build confidence and validity in her student athletes. Coach Jo’s number one strength is her ability to connect with an athlete and understand their situation.  She is approachable and kindhearted with the straightforward, no-nonsense approach necessary for personal growth. 

Joanne believes that redirecting your mindset and utilizing copping skills promotes healing, growth, and life skills that will stay with you both on and off the playing field.
