Coach Stephen was fantastic. He was able to give a different and unique perspective while having fun with the girls.

Highly recommend

Great coach! Easy to work with! Very knowledgeable with Volleyball!

Coach Stephen had a lot of good tips on many aspects of my game! My overhand serve had abandoned me over the years. I had rented a gym for an hour alone and practiced with no success. By the end of a subsequent lesson I had both consistency and power.

Coach Stephen is an approachable and a skilled trainer. My daughter and I had a shared session to work on our skills for recreational volleyball. He was good at meeting us at our skill levels but also offered challenges to push us to improve. He suggested small adjustments to improve technique and also bigger picture explanations to give perspective on strategy choices. I would recommend Stephen to anyone.

My daughter really enjoyed the practice. The coach provided her with insight into what she is doing right as well as what she needs to adjust to get to the next level. She was able to practice blocking and hitting against a great player that brought out my daughters competitive spirit. I as a parent could see the transformation happen. We would recommend coach Stephan to anyone looking to move to the next level. My daughter is looking forward to her next session.

Coach Stephen is fantastic. The tips he gave our daughter was just what She needed.
He was on time and very professional

Coach Stephen was awesome! He was patient, positive, and very encouraging. He gave me lots of great tips and things to practice at home.

After 1 session with Stephen my daughters confidence grew. We will definitely do more sessions with him

My daughter was very nervous about a new coach. Steven was very understanding with her and made her feel very comfortable.

Patient and knowledgeable. Thanks

Hands down the BEST coaching experience my daughter has ever had!!
He is amazingly gifted in interacting with both the player & the parent.... smart,kind & fun!
Better experience than any junior Olympic or school coach than we have encountered.

Coach Stephen was friendly, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable. He listened to what I wanted from the session and helped me with that specifically. Great session!

My previous coaches had been ok, but I was looking for someone as committed to my goals as me. Stephen is that coach and he had taken my game to a level that I never thought possible. Here is flexible, smart, patient, and I would recommend him to any athlete.

Stephen did a nice job. I picked up some useful tips in my first session.

Stephen McCarthy is unlike any other coach I have previously experienced. His approach to coaching is very different from other trainers. Most coaches believe in the perfectionist approach, whereas Stephen McCarthy believes in “playing dirty”. This type of training prepares me for the unpredictable nature of volleyball on the court. Not only that, but I came to Stephen with a shoulder injury. After watching me play during our first season he was able to identify the origin of the pain in my shoulder, a feat that three months of physical therapy was unable to accomplish. Stephen McCarthy also has a terrific personality that makes our training sessions even more enjoyable. I would recommend Stephen McCarthy to anyone.

Stephen worked with my daughter after a high ankle sprain. He did more in 3 days then any other trainer had done for her in 10 days. The methods he used to get her walking again were awesome. Stephen is one who thinks outside the box and gets his kids back to the sports they love quickly and stronger.
Stephen’s dedication to athletes of all ages and sport is unquestioned. He uses programs that benefit the athlete no matter the sport. I witnessed his work with a local swim team and asked if he would do that for the a team that I coached. Not only did the kids improve from the conditioning and strength drills, they looked forward to doing them again and again. Our team finished games strong as a result of his program. I trust in his techniques and will continue to count on Stephen to give my teams an advantage.
