There should be 1 coach per 4-5 players to ensure we give you ample attention and time to improve your skills. Only one coach will take over for each squad in the exposure/training matches! Combine Details
We will teach you the same level of skill breakdown as Team USA and other national team and developmental pro coaches do... You will go over the basic keys of every skills and get 1on1 instruction as a small group from our experienced coaches... you will also get to test these out in 6vs6 practice session vs local clubs where you can prove your ability and what you're learning. This coaching will be more intense for each basic volleyball skill than you will get with 95% of pro clubs because there is no time to teach pro's how to play volleyball.
