    Coach Johns was by far the most knowledgeable coach i worked with throughout my entire volleyball career. Not only did she teach volleyball she taught us to take accountability, and be responsible and respectful. Coach Johns truly wanted the best for all her players , she would go above and beyond to tweak the tiniest error. There was no pressure with Coach Johns, mistakes could be made and she would correct it without any judgment. During my time with Coach Johns I was taught how to email colleges, which I had never done before, she taught us how to make highlight videos and what information to include in our emails. I was recruited to 2 colleges and I can’t thank Coach Johns enough for the training she gave me, I will forever be grateful for how much she helped mold me into the player I became.

    She gets to know the players to flex her style by finding what it means to them to adapt. She is someone you can shadow a leader.

  • Christy Johnson

    Coach Johns is knowledgeable of the game, technically proficient, and very patient when working with all age groups. Players gain skills training and tools to continue with individual growth. The honesty with players and confidence that Coach Johns provides makes Coach Johns Elite.

  • Frances Nzioki

    Coach Johns is very consistent and knew just how to help my child increase her confidence and skills. She was always very professional and made lessons fun. She is very knowledgeable about the sport and utilized different drills to enhance weaknesses. She worked well with my daughter and my son and though they were on different net heights and skill levels, she was able to make lessons enjoyable for both, while building confidence in each child. WE REALLY ENJOYED HER POURING INTO OUR KIDS!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Begin with a conversation with the player(s) and parent(s) to see what the player has done, what the expectations are, maybe set some goals (if player is advanced enough). During the lesson: assess what level the player is: technically, physically, mentally through skills, drills and questions. After lesson speak again with player and parent and revisit the goals and expectations and make sure they are obtainable, and add any additional help if needed.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$90 per lesson (cheaper if more than one player, but will only take a max of 3-4). Typically will take combinations such as: all middles, all OH, all RS, all setters, 2 setters and hitter, 2MH and SETTER, etc. 


How did you get started teaching?

I was a player myself that started playing volleyball late (HS) and realized how much I loved the sport. Once in college, I found out just how much my HS coaches didn't know how to guide us (to no fault of their own) and train us from the ground. That's when I knew what type of coach I wanted to be. I teach from the ground up! I change the way players anylize the game. I give the answers to their questions then I begin to ask them to breakdown for me what their body and mind are doing so that they are able to adjust in game situations.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with players from ages 6yrs-19yrs.
