We have a fabulous coaching staff, with many years of experience playing and coaching high-level volleyball.  All of our coaches are background-checked and are dedicated to providing the best experience possible for your children.  Among our staff we have numerous former college division 1 players, professional beach & indoor players, high school coaches that have won CIF and State championships, and a 2-time Olympian (Mike Lambert!).  Our coaching staff is incredible and we enjoy working together.
