Eric Neely, Camp Director
Head Women’s Volleyball Coach, Babson College
Eric Neely is in his ninth season as Babson’s head women’s volleyball coach. Recognized as one of the top programs in the region, Neely has guided Green and White to seven consecutive seasons of at least 18 wins, three NEWMAC Tournament championships and four NCAA Tournament berths.
After leading the Beavers to a 17-13 mark and their first NEWMAC Tournament berth since 2009 in his first season at the helm, Neely guided Babson to a 22-8 record in 2012, equaling the school record for victories in a season, while becoming the first coach in the history of the program to earn NEWMAC Coach of the Year honors. Neely, who received NEWMAC Coach of the Year honors, led Babson to a historic 2014 campaign that included a share of the NEWMAC regular-season title, a NEWMAC Tournament championship and the first NCAA Tournament berth in program history. The Beavers set a new program record with 27 victories, which included a school-record 15-match winning streak, and their first NCAA Tournament triumph.
In addition to coaching at Babson, Neely has coached the top Junior Olympic teams at SMASH Volleyball Club in the 14s, 16, 17s, and 18s age groups and led coach education for SMASH. He also serves as an instructor for the Positive Coaching Alliance, and has attended advanced Gold Medal Squared coaches education and the USA Volleyball coach accreditation program.
