The Schanks | 5/27/20
John – thank you for your dedication to so many young volleyball players and to FPS families. Your commitment is a shining light for so many you have touched with your efforts.

Sue, Todd, Kayleigh & Aidan Rose | 6/2/20
John Kovatch…You have always been a guiding light for the girls that you have coached.  I got to know you when Kaitlyn was in 3rd grade and we started doing volleyball clinics together.  Now she is about to graduate 8th grade and you have stayed true in using your coaching platform to help young families who are fighting cancer.  I will always be grateful for taking the step to reach out to Helena’s Volleyball while I was coaching at SPN.  As we coached together, you have been an inspiration and made me a better person just by knowing you and your family.   Thank you for all your dedication in helping the girls learn the sport of volleyball, while also, keeping them focused on life’s bigger picture through your affiliation with For Pete’s Sake.  God Bless and best of luck in your next chapter!

John –  Thanks for your enthusiasm and tireless efforts, not only to the SHS and TNT girls’ volleyball programs and teaching them the S.W.E.A.T. principles important to Catholic youth athletics, but also being a beacon of light in your volunteer actions and commitment to help many people through For Pete’s Sake.

Val, Al, Aly and Nicholas Wines | 6/5/20

John, thank you for your dedication to the SHS Girls’ Volleyball program. Aly really learned a lot from you during the summer practices that you held with Sue last year along with the preseason SHS practice sessions. It was Aly’s first year and you really made her feel welcomed! You seem to have a wonderful talent of bringing out the best in all who meet you and we are fortunate to be in that group! Wishing you the best as you move on to your next venture! Thank you again for all you do!

John congratulations on a much-deserved award! You have been very giving of your time at St. Helena. All of my girls have had you as a coach and mentor in some way or another whether it be volleyball, basketball or clinics. Your passion and enthusiasm for volleyball and sports in general is wonderful and our family appreciates all of your selfless contributions!
