More About Coach Lok-tin

I've worked with players of all levels. I can teach basics for beginners. I've made average players good and good players even better. All players that seek help have taken something (skill-wise) from me no matter what their skill level. I'm currently the assistant to a women's D-III program at Wheaton, former head coach for a D-III team at Lesley University, responsible for all aspects of running the program from recruiting players to training the team to coaching matches. Currently I coach Pioneer Valley U-17 club team. Previously I coached a top ranked Andover PUMAS Club U-18, and in my tenure there we have earned two second place NERVA Copper Bracket finishes, 36th out 100 teams. (30th in the second year) I have coached many clinics and camps, including Nike since 2011, and have also been an assistant high school and college coach in the past so I have experience working with a variety of age ranges.

First session is usually getting to know you and your skills.
The next sessions usually depend on what you would like to work on. Or we work on your weaknesses.

I try to keep it quick paced so we work on 4-5 skills each hour.

I use video to breakdown more specifics of mechanics after 2-3 sessions.

Client Reviews

Lok really was great! We have tried two other coaches and while all are good, Lok really stood out. Technically, he is really solid. My daughter learned things she had never been coached on throughout her years of volleyball. He also helped build her confidence, and is very steady. His use of video was really great because it helped my daughter see and differentiate what she was doing vs what he wanted her to do. She has another year of volleyball ahead of her and we will be going back to Lok.

Coach Lok-tin has been a great help to my daughter over the summer as she wanted to improve her volleyball game. As a parent, I found him to be very responsive and easy to work with. He really helped my daughter's game and her confidence. His use of video to assist with his coaching was also a great tool. I highly recommend Coach Lok-tin and my daughter will continue to work with him even when she is back in school.

My daughter and I were looking for some extensive training (she is a college player). We were thrilled when we came across Lok-tin's name on Coach-Up. We were familiar with Lok from other clinics my daughter had done and from club team circuit. She would have loved to have tried out for his team, but unfortunately she had aged out.
Lok's fees for sessions are reasonably priced. Sessions are filled with great technique, strategies and pointers. My daughter was looking to bring some real improvement to certain aspects of her game. She feels she was able to do that. She is going back for the new season with confidence and cannot wait to get back at it and for her college coach to see the improvement in certain areas of her game. We highly recommend Lok-tin Yao.

Coach Lok-tin quickly improved my daughters skill set and performance. She learned more in 2 private sessions with him then she had in 3 full days of a volleyball camp. He also showed her different drills she could practice on her own. I would highly recommend Coach Lok-tin.

I wanted to go over the basics do I could learn and build my volleyball skills. Lok was great and patient explaining and teaching. I am a beginner so he met me where I was but also encouraged me to focus on improving by sending an email with all the skills and drills we went over during the lesson. Highly recommended!

Coach Lok was very patient and gave many pointers to my son. He explains and demonstrates where my son needs to improve . Within 2 lessons, I see a difference. At my son tournament.

I can’t imagine how well he will be playing after all our sessions are completed

Coach Lok-tin was awesome! He quickly figured out where my daughter needed help and patiently worked on building those skills.

Coach Lok-Tim has proven very reliable, responsible and helpful in getting me ready for my tryouts next week!!!

Coach did a great job working on player's mechanics. Videos helped player visualize her form and identify areas for improvement. We plan on working with Coach Lok again.

I was very impressed with Coach Lok-tin's training session. He was very organized and made sure I knew what I was doing wrong and showed me exactly how to fix it in order to improve as a player. He always made sure that I understood certain skills by using specific drills to help me continue developing it. I will hopefully continue lessons with Coach Lok-tin because of his understanding, knowledge of the sport, and tips that can help me become a better athlete!

Coach was technically excellent, personable and informative. We appreciated the level of detailed analysis and instruction.

Coach Lok-tin was good for my volleyball game. I've been more comfortable with passing and hitting than anytime in the past. It was great to get a more professional look at my volleyball skills or lack thereof.


Coach Lok-tin was excellent! Very knowledgeable and well prepared for the session, He was a outstanding help to my daughter! Thank you coach!

Coach Lok-tin was great! I learned so much in one session. He gave me pointers and it helped me improve my skills. I would definitely recommend him!

Coach Lok-tin was excellent - over the training sessions he identified what our goals were, and tailored the sessions and drills to meet those expectations. He used instruction, drills, and video review each session, which was a great combination. Lok-tin was also able to provide real world advice as to what high school coaches look for in players, and the skills needed to do well at the high school and college level because he has experience in both.

Coach Lok is an excellent communicator (we e-mailed back and forth quite a bit)! He showed up on time, was prepared for the session, very enthusiastic, and my daughter really enjoyed his coaching style. I'd highly recommend him if you are looking for a volleyball coach. Thank you Coach Lok!!

Very useful..

My daughter said she learned a lot from coach Lok-lin. Will definitely book more lessons.

Coach Lock Tin was great with my daughter. He showed up early, was prepared and she enjoyed each session. We will keep on training with him over the summer.

Coach Lok was exactly what I expected. Great communication to set up the sesson. My daughter really enjoyed a sesson with him. Great coach with lots of enthusiasm and energy. Very well prepared for the sesson, too. Look forward to another sessons with him. Thanks!

This was our daughter's first session with Lok-tin. He was very helpful right from the start and was able to immediately focus on teaching skills that she can work on. My daughter is looking forward to working with Lok over the summer.

Hi Lok! Just wanted to let you know I made JV thank you for all the help! Hope to see you next summer at Nike!
