Emily Day

USA National Beach Volleyball Player



Age: 29 years old

Height: 6’1’’
Wing Span: 6’4’’
Approach Touch: 10’

My Team:
Brittany Hochevar, partner- 2016 Manhattan Beach Open Champion
Anthony Darmiento, trainer- USA Beach Volleyball Strength and Conditioning Coach
Dr. Jake Insler, sports psychologist

College: Applied Mathematics degree from Loyola Marymount University

Hometown: Torrance, CA and currently living in Hermosa Beach, CA

What I do off the court: reading, hiking, snowboarding, bike rides along the beach, dinners with friends, traveling, and math

First professional moment:  Making my pro beach volleyball debut in Long Beach in July 2007 while still in college, my partner Heather Hughes and I established an AVP record for the lowest-seeded team to advance from the qualifier (seeded 54th), as well as for the youngest team to do so (combined age just over 41 years).
