Introduction: Teaching the fundamentals of the game creates a real foundation to improve. Specializing in 1 or 2 skills diminishes your opportunities to develop a well-rounded game. At the National Team level you want to know how to play volleyball using all skills and that's what I teach. What I will use to coach your player: -Technique training based on your players ability and coordination -Explanation to your player of why they need to do it in this manner -Video Review of your player with prioritizing of goals -Convenient locations to assist you in scheduling the opportunity -Personal contact with your player outside of lessons to develop personal responsibility -Professional and National Team playing and coaching education My Career Bio: I've been playing Volleyball for over 14 years and coaching for 8 years off and on. I achieved a State Championship in Junior College. Considered a top middle blocker while excelling in the NCAA . Played 4 years of professional volleyball in 10 countries. Trained with the USA National Volleyball indoor team for 5 years. I joined the USA Junior National beach team for 2 years and earned the AAA rating in CBVA (California Beach Volleyball Association). This past year I've won an AVP Next beach volleyball competition, made the AVP Main Draw in Manhattan Beach and took 2nd place in the Norceca representing USA Beach Volleyball.

KJ is an excellent volleyball coach/trainer with extensive experience and provides high level, detailed coaching to all levels of volleyball players. I appreciate that he takes the time to be very detailed in explaining how to improve skills and uses unique drills and exercises that really helped my daughter with her serving and passing. I would highly recommend KJ.

Kris has done an excellent job as a private coach for my daughter. He is a very knowledgeable volleyball coach and puts forth that knowledge to fix the errors she is making. Since the first practice, my daughter has improved in all aspects of the game and has been able to become a much better overall volleyball player.
