My Daughter had the privilege of being coached by Coach Marshall for 4 years, and what started as an "off season" activity to take a break from competitive volleyball, turned into a FUN 4 year journey that landed her a scholarship to play Tennis in College! This was made possible because of the fun and enjoyable experience she had by associating with the program Coach Marshall has developed.
