Hi inga,

Wow, you are an active family, aren't you? With volleyball being a
team sport it's unlikely you'll get a private lesson without first
joining a clinic or class and making your own private arrangements.
All the links below are for group lessons, so I understand if you
reject this as an answer.

The Santa Monica Recreational Volleyball Club offers adult clinics for
$45 if you are a Santa Monica resident, so bring along your drivers

The next 'season' of lessons starts on the 22/9 and finishes on the
27/10; lessons will be held at 2030 Bernard Way on Sundays from 9:30
am to 12 noon.

Contact details for the Club are as follows:

Maggie Philgence
PO Box 912
Santa Monica, California 90406


If you're willing to settle for beach volleyball, Mauro Zanella and
Greg Venturi are both members of the Association of Beach Volleyball
Coaches and are holding a series of clinics (each with several
lessons) in Santa Monica. As you're a Santa Monica resident, these
will cost you $41.

The dates for the clinics are these:

Wed. 9/4-10/23,
6:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

Sat. 9/7-10/26
9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
For further information, call 458-2239.

Nabil Mardini is the head coach of Women's Volleyball and Pierce
College, and previously served as head coach of the Santa Monica
Volleyball Club. If anyone can direct you to a reputable coach or to
an organisation that's welcoming of new members, he can! You can
telephone him at Pierce College on (818) 710-4429. Alternately, you
could try faxing the Athletic Department on (818) 710-4143. As you are
paying for this information I would telephone him on your behalf,
except that I live in Australia and the cost of the call would be

If you require further research from me please do not hesitate to ask
for clarification, you may of course reject my answer entirely if you
choose to do so.

Best wishes,

The information you’ve collected is certainly very useful. Thank you.
I am definitely not rejecting the answer. But could you please find me
at least 1 place where I can get one on one sessions? Doesn’t have to
be in Santa Monica. Try Beverly Hill, Malibu, Marina del Rey, Century
City: anywhere close to these areas.

Hi inga,

I have emailed a guy called Greg who has a website called, and asked him if he knows of anywhere in your area
that offers one-on-one coaching.

Pending a reply from Greg, you might like to try calling the American
Volleyball Coahes Association ( ). Their
telephone number is (719) 576-7777, their fax is (719) 576-7778, and
their mail address is 1227 Lake Plaza Drive, Suite B, Colorado
Springs, CO 80906. Sorry not to call them myself on your behalf, but
as I think I've mentioned to you before I'm in Australia.

I have also found a link to 'California Community College Women's
Volleyball Coaches Association'

Perhaps if you contact them they would know of coaches who give
private lessons in your area. The only contact details are a mailing
address, which is as follows: Kanoe Bandy (Treasurer), Taft College,
29 Emmons Park Drive, Taft CA 93268. I looked up their phone number
for you, it's 661-763-7700.

I'm sorry not to be able to provide you with anything more than links
to people who might know of one-on-one coaches, as volleyball is a
team sport people tend to advertise themselves on-line as being 'coach
of Team X' rather than as an individual lesson giver.

Sorry not to have helped more; if you are terribly dissatisfied please
reject my answer and give another researcher the chance to help you.

Best wishes,

receive information from Greg.

There's nothing from Greg yet, but given the time difference between
here and the US that's probably understandable. Are you sure you don't
want to reject my answer and give another researcher the chance to
help you, and if I get an answer from Greg I'll just post it as a
comment? I feel bad that I haven't been able to help you more. Sorry.
