My name is Brandon Joyner. I'm from Chester Virginia and I've been coaching for VolleyCamp Hermosa since October of 2018.
I started playing when I was a junior in high school. I then went to George Mason University after that I was lucky enough to go play professionally overseas for two seasons, and switched over to beach volleyball where I played on the NVL for five years. Now I'm currently still playing on the AVP.
I got connected with VolleyCamp Hermosa by knowing Mark in college. The last couple years I've been hinting that I wanted to come out and finally, he gave me the push and the okay, and now that I'm out here I'm very excited to be working with him again.
I like coaching for VolleyCamp Hermosa because it really does feel like a family. I come out here every single day and I know that I'm going to recognize at least one person at class. It really is a warm environment that every single time, I have to come down to coach where I am excited to go.
I love coaching because I've always been someone who's benefited from seeing somebody else get better. I love giving somebody a challenge, and then helping them succeed at that challenge. My coaching philosophy relates a lot to my life philosophy. I try to keep it simple. My favorite quote is “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”. I think it's something that not only you can apply to life but something that you can apply to volleyball as well.
Some of the goals that I have as a player, first I would love to qualify for an AVP - That's kind of been on my bucket list ever since I started playing volleyball. I want to represent the US as much as I can whether that's an FIVB event or NORCECA events, but really, I just want to get as good as I can. I want to reach my limits, and I don't think I've done that quite yet
What I like most about living in Southern California is that this is a typical day, most of the days are like this and there's plenty of beach volleyball around. The availability of training and the weather, it's hard to beat.
