Recently we invited AVP pro beach volleyball players Braidy Halverson and John Mayer to talk about their careers as professionals and to demonstrate their skills to the kids on game day. John taught the kids some setting techniques while Braidy stole the show with his spiking ability.

 

It was great to see the pros in action and we look forward to more pros coming out and showing the kids their skills! Thanks, John and Braidy!

The Laguna Niguel Clinician staff had a great addition this Spring, Tom Hoff!

He is bringing his experience playing and coaching volleyball to the volunteer coaches and players at the Laguna Niguel USYVL.  You might say that program is lucky! 

Tom was a standout at Ohio state and then Long Beach State where he was the AVCA First-Team All-American in 1995 and 1996.  

To top it off he was one of the most dominating players on the United States Men's National Team and won a gold medal in the 2008 Olympics.

AVP and FIVB beach volleyball star Phil Dalhausser stopped by USYVL Oxnard to show the kids his 2008 Olympic Gold Medal! Needless to say, the kids AND the parents were thrilled to see 6'9" Phil signing autographs and handing out golden volleyballs while demonstrating skills on a very low net. Thanks for coming out, Phil!

Hannah was one of the very first USYVL kids, starting at 6 1/2 years old.  She especially loved playing defense, digging and chasing balls was her specialty!  She grew into not only an excellent defensive player, but worked very hard to become an outstanding setter, as well. 

She continued to play competitively through middle school and high school, earning numerous awards as setter for Thousand Oaks High School including  1) Ventura County Player of the Year and 2) Marmonte League Player of the Year (twice!) 

She is currently a sophomore at the University of the Pacific, where she is the starting setter for their NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball Team, playing in the Big West Conference.  She also loves playing beach volleyball and is looking forward to the spring, for the first season of NCAA Women's Sand Volleyball.    From early on, Hannah has loved the game, and credits USYVL for starting her on the path to playing at the highest level!
