More About Coach Garrett

I am an experienced volleyball player and coach who has played both indoor and beach volleyball for more than 15 years, including at the collegiate level. Below are my accomplishments and experiences:

- Southern Methodist Univeristy Men's Volleyball Club Captain (primary positions played - Libero and Setter)
- First Team All Conference - Southern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association
- Top fifteen finish at NIRSA Men's Volleyball Nationals, Division II
- Florida Beach Volleyball Tour - Open level competition
- Bud Light Beach Volleyball Tour - Open level competition

- Head Coach, Greenhill School JV Boys Volleyball
- Head Coach, Southern Methodist Men's Volleyball Club
- Head Coach, Southern Methodist Women's Volleyball Club
- Head Coach, Tampa Preparatory School JV Boys Volleyball
- Student Coach, Tampa Preparatory School Varisty Women's Volleyball.

I have coached athletes of all ages, ranging from elementary school through college and can coach athletes who are at any skill level. I will focus on the fundamentals of the sport, as I believe that repetition of skills and techniques turns into consistency, which is the most valuable skill to have. Specifically, I will focus on footwork, passing and hitting mechanics, setting, serving, defensive and offensive rotations, and physical conditioning (If there is one specific skill in which you would like instruction, I would be more than happy to coach to that one skill set). At the end of each session, it is my goal for athletes to feel a sense of immediate improvement and to further learn the joys of the game.

Volleyball is a great sport and a passion of mine and I look forward to passing along my knowledge of the game and my many years of experience to you.

Client Reviews

My daughter loves working with Coach Garrett and has shown improvement in just a few sessions. He has a great communication style and connects well with his student in a clear, simple way without being intimidating. We have been very happy working with him and highly recommend him!

Straight-forward, to the point and keeps it simple. Really appreciated his assessment of my current skill level and look forward to work with him again.

We are a beach volleyball team that always did OK, but never great. We were tired of being mediocre and decided to hire a coach. We feel we got very lucky when we found Garrett - he is the real deal! He is not just a volley ball player that thinks he can coach; he is a true coach with the rare ability to effectively communicate both the physical and mental aspects of the game.

Through CoachUp we signed up for 3 full sessions, and coach Garrett continuously adjusted his coaching style and drills to fit our improved abilities. He analyzed our team quickly and ran specific drills to address exactly what we needed. Both individually and as a team he was always watching closely, and had just the right correction or adjustment to fix the little things we were doing wrong. We made marked improvements in ALL aspects of our game in just a few sessions.

We now look forward to the upcoming season confident that we will be able to compete at a significantly higher level, and most importantly have a lot more fun! I strongly recommend Garrett’s training sessions to anyone interested in volleyball and looking to improve their skills and take their game to the next level.

Thanks Coach!

Garrett's highly effective coaching skills has allowed me to improve my skills and confidence. After just a few sessions, my play has improved immensely and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to improve their techniques.
