Marge Ramos returns to A5 South having worn many hats in the sport of volleyball.  She previously served as Coaching Director, Board Member and Master Coach at A5 South; and served as Youth Programs Co-Director, Summer Camps/Clinics Administrator, Club Banquet Manager and Food Coordinator at A5 North.  Her coaching career began in 1999 at local grassroots level clinics.  She began assisting with A5's youth program in 2006 and has since head coached & assisted teams in the 11U-15U age groups as well as middle & high school programs in the Atlanta area.  She is also a Lead Instructor at VolleyPerformance.  As an Oglethorpe University alumna, Marge contributed to the volleyball program as an Assistant Coach and Director of Volleyball Operations for two seasons.

A native of Manila, Philippines, she fell in love with the sport at the age of seven.  She grew up peppering with two of her sisters and briefly trained with the Philippine Youth National Team.  Her playing career as an Outside Hitter was spent in her homeland, which exposed her to international competition at the youth and high school levels.

Outside of volleyball, Marge spent many years as a human resources professional in the beverage and software industries, followed by careers in sports management, special events and the thriving Atlanta tv/film industry.  As a foodie and passionate home cook, she was inspired to obtain her culinary credentials and hopes to open a food truck one day.  

She is extremely excited about the progressive growth of the A5 Family and looks forward to working with A5 South coaches, players and families.
