More About Coach Michael

I am an IMPACT certified coach with a local volleyball club, and have over 10 years of volleyball experience, including playing and officiating. I typically coach club in the 14-and-under age group, and have helped out with/coached teams in almost every age division. I have also coached middle and high school programs. Now, I also work as the Assistant Coach at Mills College. I have also done camps, clinics, and summer programs.

I had a wonderful mentor who gave me first-hand instruction for 6 years on how to teach the skills of volleyball, and how to run a program. He and I together led the team at Holy Names High School in Oakland, CA to their first league playoffs in a decade. A couple years later, I got the Assistant Coach job at Mills College, and used those skills from my mentor to help the head coach put Mills College back on the map. The team at Mills College only narrowly missed out on making their league playoffs by one spot in their 2018 season. It would have been their first playoffs appearance in over a decade. I am privileged to have been a part of that, and to be able to continue to work for the program.

Seeing all of these different "sides of the coin," I am very enthusiastic about private training. Most people seem to be able to make more progress when 1-on-1 lessons are incorporated as part of their training path. I want to provide this training for anyone who is new to the sport, or just wants to hone their edge. I believe that 2 hour sessions are better than 1 hour sessions, but I also offer 1 hour sessions for those looking for a shorter duration. Let's talk and develop a training plan that's right for you!

I played on the varsity volleyball team for all four of my years in high school, becoming a 6 rotation player during my sophomore year. During my Senior year, I set a record earning 28 kills in a single match, and received the honor of being selected for First Team All-League. I also played club volleyball during that time at Diablo Valley Volleyball Club. I earned a spot on the men's volleyball team at City College in San Francisco as a walk-on after graduating high school.

My basic plan for every session may incorporate some or all of the following elements, depending on the needs of the athlete:

1. Footwork and agility training
2. Passing exercises
3. Digging exercises
4. Serve reception exercises
5. Serving practice
6. Hitting practice
7. Strategy - general, and position specific
