Throughout his 31-year career in volleyball, Parker has acquired a wealth of experience at the high school, club, collegiate, and event management levels.
As the owner of the Synergy Sports Group, Parker has been hosting and managing indoor and outdoor sporting events for the last 25 years. These Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association/NJCAA/Junior Olympic events have catered to hundreds of teams across the Midwest.
During his fourteen-year high school varsity coaching career, he compiled a 187-120 (.609) overall record. Parker produced 34 high school all-conference players, six conference player-of-the-year award winners and sent over 30 of his former players on to compete at the collegiate level. His teams celebrated three conference championships and two trips to State (1997, 2000). His 2000 team finished as the WIAA Division II State Runners Up.
Parker has dual roles as owner and Executive Director of Wisconsin Performance Volleyball Club; a Junior Olympic volleyball organization, for 23 years. Under his direction, the club started with 4 teams, grew to over 30, and has had over 2,000 registered athletes. As a former professional beach player, Parker also wanted the athletes in the Madison-area to experience the same experiences he did on the beach. In 2013, he established the most successful junior beach program in Dane county: Performance Beach Club. As a club coach throughout the last 23 years, he has compiled a 240-89 (.729) record working with a variety of age groups.
