Volleyball Club Team Coach Kheanna Landrum

I am a 23 year old Arizona native. Throughout school, I played Volleyball for a total of ten years, a couple of years of basketball and I ran track for seven years. I went to a total of three different high schools! Trevor G. Browne, South Mountain and finally Agua Fria High School which is where I graduated from. After high school, I was recruited to play volleyball at South Mountain Community College. I attended South for a full two years and received my Associate’s of Arts degree. I also graduated an All American. After SMCC, I was blessed with another full-ride scholarship to THE Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD. Here, I finished out the remainder of my two years, graduating Magna Cum Lade with my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology. Throughout the years I have been blessed with coaches whom have helped instill valuable skills that I have carried with me throughout life. My goal is to help pass down and instill these same skills, and more, into the young women of the Tolleson Community. My hope is to help young women develop their minds and ethic in a way that will prepare them for college, different types of relationships, the work force and any other aspect of their lives.

Affordable and Quality Club Team, Private Training, and Youth Volleyball Camps!

Playing competitive club volleyball has many benefits, one is the amount of additional time on the volleyball court and in competitive situations that high school and middle school coaches cannot create in their respective off-seasons. For example, most club teams have two to three practices per week for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours per practice. This translates into over 80+ hours of additional practice time in the gym dependent on team.

Youth volleyball camps have tremendous benefits for young athletes. For starters, they are a blast for participants, even those who are more serious athletes. There are many overnight camps that allow you to room with fellow athletes and have free time with them, giving them the opportunity to make new friends and have a blast with their fellow athletes. Athletes are able to get away from the world, even if just for a few days, and play volleyball with friends and competitors alike.
