|I love the sport of volleyball. It is incredibly fun and even more as you get good at it. I make it a goal to care for the athletes beyond just the sport while also training excellence in a game that I love. I believe the game teaches the game but technical work and fundamentals help play at a simpler and more efficient level.|
