Tatum McKenzie

BoCo Owner & Director
BoCo Volleyball Athletic Club Owner and Director, Tatum McKenzie, has had a great passion for the sport of volleyball from a very early age, learning the love of sports from her parents who were super sports fans. She grew up in Strasburg, Colorado, and after high school went on to play volleyball at Northeastern Junior College as an outside hitter, where the Plainswomen advanced to 6th place at Nationals. After her time at NJC, she continued her education at Colorado State University.

After college, Tatum and her husband, Matt, settled down in Longmont, Colorado, and she began coaching recreational volleyball when her daughter was in 3rd grade. She continued coaching at the recreational level until 2013 when she took a job coaching at Silver Creek High School, soon accepting the Head Coach position for the lady Raptors.  She led her varsity teams to the State Tournament in both 2016 and 2018. Tatum was also named the Northern League Coach of the Year in 2016 and 2018.

Her philosophy has always been to support kids in all aspects of their lives and thus impact the community. By teaching young athletes the importance of applying strong work ethics, setting and achieving goals, overcoming fears, being strong leaders and teammates, and taking on challenges in their lives, she trusts that we develop confident young adults who become solid, positive members of society.

For as long as she can remember, Tatum has always envisioned running a club organization in Longmont for both girls and boys; one that is highly organized and combines quality coaching with great communication, smaller teams, and scholarship opportunities for those who struggle to afford the opportunity.

Tatum currently lives in Longmont with her husband Matt, daughter Macy (18), Jackson (13) and their 2 dogs, Gus and Ada. She has been part of the Longmont community since 1998.

She is excited to watch her athletes grow with BoCo!
