More About Coach Elaine

Hi everyone! My name is Elaine. I’m an ex AAA Beach Volleyball Player turned youth coach. I’ve been coaching beach volleyball for all ages for close to 10 years.
I also have coached under USA Olympic Gold medalist, and World champion Beach Volleyball player , Sinjin Smith. I recently coached for HBVC with specialization on U-12 & U-15 girls and boys. I enjoy coaching private lessons because it allows me to focus on one particular player and develop particular areas of the game that needs improvement and growth. I firmly believe that basic fundamentals are important and that the needs of each player must be developed and memorized to move on to the next level. This includes adults at all levels :
Beginners
Intermediate
Advanced

I look forward to coaching you with all of my heart and all of my experience. Come and train with coach Elaine. Thank you 😊

I won the Manhattan Beach state cup, earned my AAA.
I renewed my AAA by winning Capistrano Beach tourney,
I’ve been coaching youth for approximately 9 years with much success.

Depending on the level of the client, I would start with what mostly needs worked on. Should it be passing, hitting, footwork, defense, and serving. If a new player to the game, the most important skill is passing while learning good footwork in the sand. From that we move into hitting & setting while also focusing on serving intermittently. I believe that one must learn to pass 1st otherwise the rest of the game suffers.

Client Reviews

Coach Elaine was terrific at showing my 5th-grade daughter some of the fundamentals of the game and got her moving much more quickly around the court!

Really professional. One hour of lots of technique learning. Good coach.

Coach Elaine showed up at every training session with high energy, lots of enthusiasm, and a list of drills to focus on. She watched my body movements during the drills and made suggestions to help me improve my skills. She was able to demonstrate proper technique for me to learn from. Overall, she was great. I learned a lot from her.

Coach Elaine was amazing! Our daughter is pretty shy and timid with new people but Coach Elaine jumped right in with her and kept her going and learning. We only got one session in due to time constraints with our family schedule but will DEFINITELY be booking with her on a regular basis when we head back to town. Thanks Coach!

Coach Elaine was a wonderful coach to work with as her main interest is seeing her players do well. She taught my daughter many things in a short time. Her coaching style is clear and is easily understood helping players perform at their peak. She is very personal and always wants the best!
