Coaching & Training
I’ve put my years of experience into a coaching practice that helps all my students excel to their greatest potential. On the sand or on the court!
Volleyball | Olympic Gold Medalist
I played sports from the age of 7 until I retired from USA Volleyball at the age of 34. I started with baseball, played basketball, and literally fell into Volleyball, the result of a nasty hip check in basketball that fractured my throwing arm in 2 places. I played 1 year of JV ball, then 2 years of Varsity in High School. In that short time, my exhibited physical, mental and coordination skills across other sports transferred to volleyball quickly and rapidly. I was a top recruit with the hashtag we all laugh about “great upside potential”.
I became a standout player while at Stanford, eventually getting the opportunity to represent the United States in the 1988 Olympic Games and winning Gold. I played with some of the best to ever come through the National ranks. Coaching as well. I had accumulated a lot of great knowledge, applied in years of training and then in competition, and felt it was time to pass along what I learned. The challenge of course is always teaching the content.
As one of the Technical Directors for a volleyball club that fields 55 teams across all age groups, I also coach a 13s power team. After 3 years of relative success coaching 17 Open teams, performing thousands of hours of private coaching, I decided to dedicate my time to helping shape athletes at their competitive beginnings.
