Our elite coaches are a mix of current and former national team USA (& other nations where applicable) athletes and international pro's that have trained and performed at the highest levels nationally and internationally. Bringing expert knowledge and experience to your athletes in a down-to-earth, engaging and simple way. We have several ways to get young athletes prepared for their road in sports, so they reach their best levels and transition to the next level in sport, life and/or school appropriately.
The program is founded by former Team USA (18-man roster) & current 16 year pro volleyball veteran, Ryan Jay Owens (RJO), who has spent the majority of the last 16 years in Europe, Asia and South America playing high level pro and building Beyond Athletic mentorship, skills and foundational trainings for international clubs (see video examples)...
