Overview

Played for a professional team in Montenegro for 10 years. I played for the Montenegrian National Team. I earned full ride scholarships at the Mineral Area College and Rockhurst University. I earned All Region in 2008 at Mineral Area College. I competed in NCAA division II at Rockhurst University.
My coaching experience started with coaching Rockhurst Volleyball team in Kansas City, Missouri, in the year of 2011. I have coached college athletes. During my Master studies in Finland I have worked as an head coach for Jyle volleyball team and as an assistant coach for Huki volleyball team. I worked with 10 - 20 years old.
Lead team in high level exercise, providing excellent technique in volleyball. I focused on passing, hitting, setting and serving (jump serve, ground serve, float serve), position of a hands and feet, increasing jump and speed. Starting with a warm up, running and stretching out. Then, use the ball with a partner, and warm up with a ball. Then, do the exercise with a ball, for improving the technique. Then use the passing drills, setting drills, blocking drills, serving drills. I do the demonstration of every single exercise, myself. During the each drill I make sure that every single participant perform the exercise correctly with a good positions of feet and hands.
