11-Under Armour Assistant Coach & Regional Director
This will be Melissa Britten’s 5th year with OK Charge. Last year she joined Janet Brannon as a coach for the 11-UA team that won the OKRVA Regional Tournament and qualified for Nationals. They finished tied for 21st at AAU Nationals in Orlando, FL. She returns this year as 11-Under Armour assistant coach and our Regional South team Director. Melissa has coached volleyball in the OKC area for 10+ years. She is IMPACT and CAP I certified and has been a part of the volleyball world, either as a player or coach, for almost 3 decades.
Melissa grew up in the Air Force, and later married Cal who made the AF a career. Melissa has lived in the US, England, Japan, Spain and Germany. A defensive specialist while attending Zaragoza American High School in Spain, she continued on that path while playing for the 86th Services Squadron in Ramstein, Germany. Another military move landed her in Las Vegas, NV, where she played on a 4-man sand team.
The final military move brought her and her family to Moore, OK where they decided to retire. They have a daughter, Bri, who is a former Charge player and now at Independence Community College as a starting OH.
