When Emily Stockman’s on the beach, it’s not about surf and waves. It’s about volleyball. Beach volleyball. Emily is a current member of the USA National Beach Volleyball Team and is in the running for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic team.
She had an outstanding 2019 season, playing in 15 countries and over 21 tournaments with her teammate, Kelley Larson. Emily competed in 12 events through the International Volleyball Federation and had 7-top 10 finishes and 5-top 5 finishes. On the Association of Volleyball Professionals tour, she played in five events and finished in the top 10 in all of them, including a championship title in Seattle.
Emily Stockman also partnered with the non-profit “Warrior Foundation Freedom Station” to honor and show her appreciation for those who’ve served. She and her beach volleyball teammate donated a percentage of their winnings and helped raise over $15, 000 for the program in 2019.
