"Coach Barnes was very dishonest and manipulative.
If you really look into her resume you will find that she misrepresents many experiences for example she was forcibly removed from Howard University volleyball program. I would warn any player to stay clear of this coach." - 9/29/2017

"It was too bad that the F review from 2014 stood so long without a rebuttal. Coach Barnes was a private coach for my daughter when she was first starting to learn the game. She was my daughter first coach, and Coach Barnes is the reason why my daughter went on to play club/travel and now as a junior is looking to play in college.

The player who gave the F review played for only 2 years and no wonder. Coach Barnes is a college coach, and they are tough. Even club/travel team coaches are tough. As a player, your job is to listen to your coach. You don't talk back or argue with your coach. It is their job to strategize and control everything. The goal is to win. The worse thing is to complain about playing time. If you are playing competitively and not some recreational league, then you (as every player at some point in their career) will be taken out for poor performance. It is with anything in life; if you are bad at your job, then you get fired.

She was like a mother to my child: gave her courage, confidence and steeled her mentally and physically. My daughter was 12 when she started with Coach Barnes, a bit overweight and not athletic. Even I will admit Coach Barnes was tough on her, but my daughter credits Coach Barnes for her resiliency and ability to go on when things were down. My daughter trained hard with Coach Barnes who really pushed her and wouldn't let up when my daughter wanted to quit, but that's what she needed. To this day, my daughter is so grateful for that tough start.

Unfortunately, some players are not cut out for highly competitive sports and don't have the mettle for it." - 4/9/2017

"very negative, does not listen to her athletes, takes you out of the game if you make one mistake, says you are talking back if yu speak about what you think you saw, likes to control every aspect of everything, thinks she is athletes mothers,will talk bad about players to other players" - 12/3/2014
