A little background about how April and I know each other...April Chapple and I both played college volleyball at the University of Tennessee.

Her senior year they won the SEC Championship and she was the star All-American outside hitter.

When I was in high school on my recruiting visit to Tennessee, I was in awe of her and she said Hi to me, but didn’t talk to me much because she would be gone when I arrived.

Luckily, she stayed and I had the opportunity to be coached by her my freshman season at Tennessee when she became the grad assistant.

She went on to play professionally overseas in Italy and with the National Team. Our paths crossed again when I played overseas too, 5 years later. We have also played pro beach volleyball against each other and have both been inducted into the University of Tennessee Lady Vol Hall of Fame!

​Here we are, years later, joining forces to provide you with information and insight on recruiting and the club volleyball world.


We want to help you understand how to get going in the recruiting process, how to help your player with the challenges, and how to be the best club volleyball parent (or player) you can be...setting up your daughter or son for success!

We will get specific on actions to take, volleyball positions, mindset, and more!

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.

Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.

If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
