    DAVE DEMPSKI Volleyball

    Throughout his life, Dave Dempski has found a way to make athletics a key component of his lifestyle. Between his own athletic endeavors, officiating, and administration, he's compiled quite a resume of accomplishments.

    Born in October 1939 in Tacoma, Dempski graduated from Lincoln High School in 1957 and spent several years at the University of Puget Sound. He was on the golf and bowling teams in high school and added volleyball to his list of competitive sports as an adult.

    Dempski has been a member of the Tacoma-Pierce County Volleyball Officials Board since 1994, giving him more than a quarter-century of officiating on the volleyball court. He works local high school matches as well as NCAA Div. II and III, NAIA, and community college contests. At the high school level, he has officiated six state tournaments. He's also officiated club volleyball for the Evergreen and Puget Sound regions, along with the Arizona Region whenever he heads south as a snowbird.

    Beyond his own playing and officiating, Dempski helped set up the Tacoma Volleyball Club at Tacoma Community College in the mid-1990s and has run numerous tournaments including a series of summer events on grass before beach volleyball emerged.
