Being a Volleyballer

Being a Volleyballer

My Passion for Volleyball

I adapted my lifestyle to maximize my playing time. Always thinking how to get my feet on a sand court. From the area I lived, to the school I attended, the girlfriend I was dating and even vacation destinations!

Volunteer – Ball Retriever

It was a pleasure to be a volunteer ball retriever during FIVB Beach Major Series in Fort Lauderdale. It was a great opportunity to be on center court with legends like Phil Dalhausser and Kerry Walsh from the United States. It was fun to see fellow Canadian athletes Sam Schachter and Sam Pedlow and other international teams Gibb/Crabb, Evandro/André,  Herrera/Gavira and more.

Coaching Beach Volleyball around the World

Since 2005, I had the opportunity to be involved in the development of high level athletes in beach volleyball. I was inspired by other coaches like Steve Anderson, Lauren McLeod, Glen Hoag, like It’s fascinating to be one of their guides in their journey to improve towards their full potential. I would like to congratulate remarquable athletes like Guylaine Dumont (CAN), Marie-Andrée Lessard (CAN), Hugo Rosso (CAN), Simon Fecteau-Boutin (CAN), Ivan Reka (CAN), Melody Benhamou (FRA), Déborah Giaoui (FRA), Linlin Matuatu (VAN), Miller Elwin (VAN), Henriette Latika (VAN), Joyce Joshua (VAN),
