My name is Dan Fairchild, and I have been coaching at the high school level at Averill Park since 1987. We have competed in the Patroon, Colonial, and now Suburban Councils. I have over 300 wins for my career and we won the Colonial Council championship, and won a class A sectional title in the year 2000. Before that I coached or played on several mens club teams from 1981 to about 1996. I also assisted at Plattsburgh State's women's team from 1983-85. I have coached as an assistant at the Empire State games open level as well. I took about five years off from coaching to referee at the varsity level for both boys and girls. I have coached for several club teams in the area including the original Golddiggers, Crush and CDVBC over the years.
My philosophy is fairly simple- we will agree as a team to every rule and cultural norm we create together. I begin with two non-negotiable rules-
My name is Alyse Vogt and I have been playing volleyball since I was in 7th grade. I played for Troy high and joined Cosmic Crush my sophomore year of high school. I also attended spike mountain every summer all through high school.
Sadly my final year was cut short due to Covid but I continued my volleyball journey at Hudson Valley Community College as an outside hitter/ Libero. I’m excited to be back coaching new players on the team that helped shape me into the player I am today!
I began the USA Volleyball journey over a decade ago with creation of Cosmic Crush. In that time I have coached various age levels teams in the club. I am proud to be part of an organization that promotes and fosters the positive growth of young athletes as players and teammates and in sportsmanship and character.

I graduated with an Art Interdisciplinary Study degree with concentrations in the Fine Arts and Social Media Marketing. I am currently in school for my aesthetician license. This will be my 3rd year coaching for crush and I am very excited to start this club season!!!
