Lesson Details

Volleyball

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I’ve played volleyball for 12 years starting in middle school and through college.
Coached JV/VARSITY/D1/D2 and club volleyball. I am extremely patient and love answering questions in detail. I have my American Cross CPR, First-Aid, NFHS Concussion, NFHS Coaching certificates and I’ve attended a handful of Volleyball clinics in WA and CA over the years. I am also a member of the Puget Sound USA Volleyball. I love being there for my athletes as a coach, mentor and friend :)

About Me:

I work extremely well with people of all ages and absolutely love to teach. My full time job is training employees how to use software and computers. On my luckier days, I get to share my love and passion for volleyball!

Overall, I’ve been playing for 16 years and coaching for over 8 years. I started playing in grade school onto competitively at the collegiate level. I am active in the volleyball community and now play recreationally in tournaments and leagues.

I have coaching experience with middle school, high school Junior Varsity, Varsity as well as club volleyball. I started coaching in 2011 and quickly learned that introducing this sport to a younger age group is as challenging as it is enjoyable. Working with kids truly sparks joy in my life!

Back to the serious stuff....I have my American Cross CPR, First-Aid, NFHS Concussion, NFHS Coaching certificates and I’ve attended a handful of Volleyball clinics here in WA and CA over the years. I became a member of Puget Sound USA Volleyball and recently volunteered as a volleyball coach for the USA Special Olympic Games 2018.

At the end of the day, I seek opportunities to transfer my knowledge to others and always hope to make a difference.

Lesson Details:

Before and after each activity I like taking the time to explain and answer questions because it's important for athletes to learn how to properly execute drills as well as understand the concepts behind what they are doing. A typical session will be customized to the athlete’s goals. I will provide detailed instructions, a quick demo, and then have the athlete briefly practice perfecting their form by themselves and get some repetitions in. Next, they will nail down some drills with me focusing on footwork and ball control. Last but not least, they will work with other players and perform in team environment. Before moving onto the next lesson, there will be opportunities to ask questions. Afterwards, athletes will be given extra resources such as videos, write-ups, at-home drills they can practice, and workouts/activities to try on their own time to try to target and strengthen muscles needed.

Online lessons are convenient and can be a fun and interactive way to learn from the comfort of your own home. Athletes are given the private and dedicated attention they need to improve through the use of training videos. The cost is of course lower as well - please message me for more details.
