I have been to many clinics and each one always teaches something new to improve on. The clinics provide a calmer environment than what school/club practices may have, and are a great place to develop volleyball skills. The coaching staff is always very helpful and provide tips for you to improve on, no matter what your skill level is. I remember one clinic, when we were working on blocking, the coaches gave me info on what I should have my hands like during a block and it has helped me block a lot of big hitters
I have been working with Coach Donny for a long time. His spiking clinics have helped me to hit the ball harder and how I can hit the ball without hurting my arm. His settings clinics have helped me with setting higher, setting without hurting my fingers, wrist, hands, etc. My favorite part of the clinics were the defensive drills. I’m a libero and one of the younger players, and it’s fun when he hits the volleyball to me just as hard as he would on the older players because he knows I can handle it. I’m 13 years old and a tiny person for my age (4’ 9") and I can’t even reach above the volleyball net. After I went to Coach Donny’s Jump Camp, I can finally, FINALLY reach above the net. Coach Donny is a great teacher/coach for volleyball. He definitely helped me become a better volleyball player and show how more athletic I am than I thought.
We teach volleyball clinics once a month for ages 13 and older, for both genders, from December through August. Our clinics focus on developing fundamental and advanced techniques for all positions, and learning defensive and offensive strategies. We provide drills to work on individual skills and apply them to game situations. We look forward to working with you!

There are no refunds after 10 pm on the

Coach Donny's clinics are structured and well-rounded. His teaching strategy consists of breaking down each skill into components, and then restitching it back together with immediate feedback from the coaches. Over the course of several clinics, we covered timing and approach for back-row attacks, right-side hitting, right-side defense, float-serves, jump-floats, blocking, among others. For each topic, Coach Donny described and demoed step-by-step, we replicated the isolated movements, and then we iterated. Each person got a lot of touches and repetitions, during which Donny and his assistant either set for us or took turns observing and correcting. Coach Donny is extremely observant and analytical and is able to pick out the small nuances that make a huge difference in effectiveness. All in, these clinics have been incredibly helpful and I plan on continuing to attend as many as I can!
