Testimonial

"I have always enjoyed playing volleyball but I truly fell in love for the game when Lainey became my coach. She is extremely knowledgeable about the sport and notices the minor details that make all the difference when you are trying to master a new skill. The technique she teaches really prepares players to play at the next level and she inspires her players to work to their full potential every single practice. I noticed an immense improvement in my level of play in every aspect of the game with her coaching and she motivated me to play at the collegiate level. She has taught me key lessons on and off the court that I will use throughout my college career and the rest of my life. Looking back, my favorite club years were the ones where Lainey was right by my side helping me grow as a player and a human being. I was extremely lucky to have Lainey as a coach and mentor and I wouldn’t have been able to get where I am now without her!"
