Coach Fred’s Training Philosophy

Coach Fred works very hard to create a great, positive, and exciting learning environment for all his players, at every session. He believes in doing whatever he can to support and nurture his players and their game. Sand volleyball is his passion, and his life, and it shows everyday. Drawing from his OVER 40 YEARS of beach volleyball experience, he teaches great fundamental volleyball techniques, with lots of emphasis on the mental game, which is so important in outdoor volleyball.

Rather than waste valuable training time on conditioning that can be done outside of training, sessions focus on technique and control, by breaking the different skills down and focusing on them individually.  Repetitions help the player master each skill,  instead of breaking their rhythm by coaching every movement.

Training with Coach Fred will improve your game substantially and make you a successful beach player.


Owner and Head Coach Fred:

Coach Fred grew up playing sand volleyball at Santa Barbara’s famous East Beach, surrounded by some of the best players in the world, such as Karch Kiraly (the ‘winningest’ player in the history of the sport) and John Hanley (long-time AVP Pro). Both were high school classmates. His skill, and love for the game, are evident in every aspect of his coaching. With over 40 years of experience, Coach Fred will take your game to the next level.
