Hi, I’m Coach J.
I’m the instructor at VolleyFitsU! I was born and raised in Utuado, Puerto Rico. I moved to Texas in July 2009 with my kids. I started my volleyball coaching career in the Spring of 2010, as a volunteer coach at the Fort Bend YMCA and was there for over six years. The rewarding feeling I received throughout my time there inspired me to create a fitness program that would allow participants to develop their volleyball skills and techniques.
In February, 2014, VolleyFitsU! Fitness Program was created and the program was picked up by Missouri City Parks & Recreation Department. VolleyFitsU! has been instructing players for the past 3 years, every Wednesday. We’ve had amazing players come through our programs, clinics, and summer camps.
In May of 2014, I had the opportunity of attend The Art of Coaching Volleyball clinic in Denver, Colorado. There I learned new ideas and coaching techniques from some of the best and most successful coaches in the sport.
In July 2014, I was hired as the Head Coach for St. Laurence Catholic School in Sugar Land. As Head Coach of the volleyball department and coach of the Varsity team, I’ve had the opportunity to expand my knowledge and grow more as a coach through the experiences during games, tournaments, and camps.
After great success at the Missouri City Parks and Recreation Center, VolleyFitsU! opened its new training facility in February 10th, 2017, on Texas Parkway in Missouri City. We now have Volleyball club teams and we have added more programs and camps at this new facility now open to the community.
