Your instructors will be led by one of the world’s most well known technical coaches, volleyball legend Anders Kristiansson, together with Mattias Magnusson and Rasmus Jonsson. All of them national team coaches.
We are also working to continually educate and update our coaching staff throughout the year, as well as before and during our camps. Anders has spend considerable time observing, assisting and helping the coaches during the training sessions. A support for the group, the coach and our concepts.
– We firmly believe that improving a player’s understanding in technique and transferred into a practical working concept, is the smartest way to fast improvement and as result become a much better player. Our ambition and happiness is equal in assisting the beginner as well as the professional. Our aim is that each participant will get practical knowledge to take along home that will actually make a future difference, explains Anders Kristiansson.
