Travis loves the game. He is always giving back and wants the youth to enjoy it just as much. He organizes and runs many free clinics. Last year he started the first Juniors in the Sand volleyball league for12-14-16 year olds. He is continually learning. He is Beach IMPACT, Indoor IMPACT certified and will be attending the Beach CAP cert in October. He assisted Marcio Sicoli with his sand clinic in AZ. Travis has 4 teams from his league playing in the USAV Junior Beach Nationals in WI. Two of the girls he trains made the AZ High Performance Beach team. He also is an assistant coach indoor for the EVJ 12u team. Travis does all this while balancing a full time job, father of 2 daughters and an amazing Husband. He is very humble and does it all for the kids and the love of the game.
