"I would love to qualify for an AVP!": Brandon Joyner

 

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...

VolleyCamp Hermosa Camper Shares Her Experience

 

We recently welcomed native Floridian Kelly Goncalves to the 7-day training camp at VolleyCamp Hermosa. Based on her review, Kelly had a blast. She blogged about her experience and was kind enough to share her thoughts with us, published below with her permission.

By Kelly Goncalves

Traveling to California is an adventure regardless of where you go. The rumors are true, the weather really is perfect all the time and the traffic is terrible all the time. I didn't rent a car and lived by the beach for eight days during my stay and I recommend you do the same. Hermosa Beach is an hour bike ride south of Venice beach. It's a smoke-free beach with miles on end of beautiful deep sand, high waves, and plenty of volleyball courts to share. Bring your own ball and make some new friends there is always someone playing.

In late August I flew out to the West Coast to watch the AVP games and attend a 7-day training camp.

Since writing this post, the training camp has added a...
