Tatum Smillie is the club director of Team Angle.  Tatum owns an art studio and is a former teacher with Muskegon and WMAAA school districts.  Tatum plays beach volleyball for fun and has grown up around the sport.  She has great organizational skills and knows how to work well with players and parents.  Please email her at if you have any questions about the club.

Team Angle has helped over 150 girls go on to play collegiate volleyball.  Seven former players were named All Americans in either the AAU, USAV or NCAA after or while playing with us.  Many players have become all state and state champions after playing for Team Angle.

Our coaches are mature adults that are capable of handling various player and team situations due to their years of experience.  Many of our coaches are teachers, school administrators, social workers, or school coaches and they know how to work well with our student athletes.  Everyone on our staff has a history of working with us in the past and they bring integrity to every team we offer.  We will not offer a team that we don't have a strong coach to pair with that team.
