The Future of San Clemente vbc is bright. We are committed to created a great training regimen for all players regardless of their age or ability. We have one of the best facilities on the west coast and coaches with high school and college experience. We will guide each player as they seek to become their best version of themselves. We work on mechanics and techniques that are used at the highest levels of the sport giving each player the opportunity to grow their individual game and prepare for the next level. Achieving excellence is our focus. We take great pains to help players make the little changes that lead to skill mastery.
Through our leadership training we help players identify their strengths both as a player and a member of the team in order to become more authentic and experience the satisfaction that comes from giving their all with out being incumbered by fear and doubt. We help players understand how to make themselves and others around them better.
San Clemente Volleyball Club was started by San Clemente High School Alumni, Tom Beard and Jennifer Adams Beard. “We wanted to create an opportunity for kids to get quality skills coaching and to grow as individual members of a team unit.
We feel that it is as important to help kids grow their self confidence and self control as it is to grow their individual skill. We think skill improvement is as much a result of a persons mind set as it is their physical ability. In order to change a player must be willing to try something new which implies a willingness to feel uncomfortable and deal with the inevitable failures until the skill is acquired through repetition. We attempt to stretch a childs game both physically and mentally so they can experience the satisfaction that comes from achieving positive results gained through hard work and focus.
We have programs for younger age groups that allow kids to learn the proper skills and participate in friendly tournaments, this is great for multi-sport athletes. At the more competitive levels, Tom is able to share his expertise that contributed to his many successes, including High School and Collegiate All American, CIF and NCAA champion, USA Junior and Senior National Team member and six years of professional volleyball in Europe.”
Our objective is to create a positive atmosphere where athletes can experience the personal satisfaction and growth that comes from working towards a goal and overcoming challenges both individually and as a group in the context of a fun team sport
Volleyball is a fun sport and we strive to make practices and training challenging but fun. We think sports should be an outlet that helps kids manage the stress of daily life. We want them to grow as individual athletes and team members.
We believe a team sport can have a positive impact on an athletes character and should reinforce the respect of fair play, as well as the importance of family and school. Life is competitive and we want to teach kids how to win without sacrificing their personal integrity and hopefully how to enjoy competition instead of fearing it.
