Having moved from NY last summer, my daughter had zero volleyball experience. But she really wanted to learn, so we joined Volleyball One on One.Her experience and training at this organization was excellent. She learned so much about the sport, had a great time in the process and experienced great skill training. We are so happy and proud that she even made the middle school team this year! Thank you:)

I highly recommend SJVC run by Coach Andor Gyulai, who has a true gift for bringing out the best in his players. He empowers these girls to be the best they can be, on the volleyball court and in life. Each coaching session has an important lesson attached such as working as a team, asking for what you want, and learning from your mistakes. Along with learning the sport of volleyball, the players are learning to be strong and resilient. Coach Andor wants the players to succeed and have fun along the way. He is passionate about volleyball and his enthusiasm is infectious, for these players are truly having fun while they learn the sport.

So far so great! Mr. Andor Gyulai and his coaches are so professional and great with the kids. My daughter love training volleyball with them. She started in March, came from MI where she didn’t like volleyball trainings at all. After her the first class with Andor and his team, she loves it! Their energy and knowledge is fantastic! Andor is amazing and so energetic! I would always recommend him and his team! You have to see them in action to know how great they are! I would always recommend them!

My daughter just started this summer and loves the experience. Coach Andor is very motivational and great coach for the sports and life skills. Self discipline and having a goal in mind as well as his expertise and years of experience in coaching will definitely benefit the players.

I would give him 10 stars if i could! We started with Andor last november and since then my son's game has gotten so much better, and his skill level has just kept improving when with him. Andor is truly one of the best coaches there is and his coaching style definetly made my son tap into his potential. He has given us so many great opportunities and fun things to do, it is never a dull day when with Andor. Send your kids to him for fun with your freinds while playing volleyball 🙂

We started going to Saint John’s Volleyball Club back in November and my 12-year old daughter’s volleyball game has already improved greatly. I love Andor’s coaching style. It is a very motivating and positive environment for the kids. He and his staff first worked with my daughter to determine where she needed to improve and then they immediately started doing drills to improve those areas.

We are fortunate to have a "World Class" coach in our back yard. Coach Andor and his team consistently have the best interest of the students in mind. He shows them fundamentals and life lessons while keeping it fun! His Passion and positivity reflect through the smiles and growing confidence of the kids. My girls are new to the sport but look forward to each practice with the dream of playing collegiate Volleyball.

This company offers great volleyball programs. My daughter enjoyed her training sessions thoroughly.Thank you for the great leadership Coach Andor!
Andor is a great motivator to his volley kids! Teaching volleyball and life skills. My daughter always leaves sessions with a smile. He also helped me out when our schedule was overbooked and my daughter couldn’t go to class… he gave more than expected to help us - without me even asking!

I cannot speak highly enough of St. John’s volleyball club and especially Coach Andor! Not only is he talented but he puts all of the players first!, he cares for their social emotional growth and basic life skills when competing in a sport.

Our 2 daughters started volleyball this past spring and we could not be more pleased! From our first interaction, we were immediately impressed and felt the passion they had for teaching kids and building up a better volleyball experience in this area. The program is well run, organized and efficient and Coach Andor has a remarkable ability to simplify and reinforce the foundational skills and beyond. Highly Recommend!


St. Johns Volleyball Club will run classes all-year going forward. Classes will be billed on a monthly basis to allow player and parents flexibility around their middle school / high school volleyball season as well as the playing of other sports. Players who attend class will be allowed to transition over to next class monthly. Classes will build on themselves to help players advance to the level they desire. St. Johns Volleyball Club will eventually launch a beach and indoor program as facilities become available.

Living in Florida, rain is an inevitable part of life when planning outdoor events. Depending on the rain level, volleyball will often continue during very light rain or after it has just rained. We use hourly forecast to predict if class will or will not happen. We let parents know via email 1 hour before class if canceled.
If for some reason we need to cancel multiple volleyball classes in a month we will then run make-up classes. Make-up classes will tend to run on Wednesdays and Friday’s.

Parents can cancel at anytime by providing an email written notice of cancellation 3-days before the end of the month. If you miss this window, your cancellation request will become effective at the end of the following month. This will allow us to open your spot to other players plus allow us to make adjustments to our coaching staff if needed. Parents can email Andor Gyulai directly at If you have questions on this policy, please call Andor Gyulai directly at 310-435-5840.

We do not offer refunds as players sign-up on a monthly basis, plus have the opportunity to try the class via our drop-in option. We encourage new players to try the class with our one-time special promotion fee for their 1st drop-in class:

Register for a Middle School Drop-In Class For $20
Register for a High School Drop-In Class For $20

Being prepared for outdoor sports activity is key for success. This includes: Hat, Sunglasses, Sunblock, and Water / Gatorade.

“Winners Stay On!” – This is an important part of our team culture and something we teach in our classes. Our belief is that competition makes everyone better, and in our practice / classes we compete, and teach kids to compete. That said, part of our practice will involve players competing against other players. Better players will go up in courts and lower skilled players will go down in courts. With newer players, we will try keep them close to players of their own age first before focusing on just their skill level. Boys and girls will also often mix and compete together. We find until age 14 girls can compete physically on the same level as boys. After age 14 we find girls often have such an advantage from starting earlier than boys, they still beat them. Many girls still want to compete with boys all the way until 18 and after.

We believe that the net height should change for younger players in order to promote good form. This means lowering the net so your child can spike over the net even at a young age. The net height will change based upon the skill level and age of the court on which they train at NocVolleyball. For most players we will adjust the net height at about the bottom of their hand.

Our goal is between 8-10 players per court, but this will change to as low as 4 players per court depending on the day. We will often divide the courts in half so that we can play two games simultaneously on the same net so that we can maximize contacts on the ball. We also encourage newer players to play on a smaller court. This encourages more touches and this type of play is better for skill development.

Yes, we will offer other resources including: instructional videos, coaching tools and more. These will be developed and added as we get the program more established and we uncover the needs of the players.

Andor Gyulai will make himself available briefly before and after each practice. Please be thoughtful and courteous by keeping questions short and to the point. If you are interested in bigger questions about the long term future of your daughter or sons volleyball career or getting a scholarship, please understand that we could possibly help within the following framework: 1) We need to first build a working relationship together over the course of at least one season. 2) Thoughtfulness matters, quick questions are fine, but longer discussions need to be put on pause until the appropriate time. 3) Andor can set up a paid consulting call at $300 / hour if you want to take your time and get answers to your full satisfaction.

Andor Gyulai does not offer private lessons as his rate is $300 / hour. We do offered lessons with our trained Volleyball1on1 / Nocatee instructors if this is what you require. We will add more details as private lessons are requested.

We suggest all players purchase a 4 Pound Medicine Ball. This ball will be used for training setting, passing and VPT – Volleyball Pattern Training. The ball can be purchased on Amazon for about $25.

We also suggest buying a re-bounder:

Volleyball1on1 is unique in that we have a proven systems called: Superior Coaching Systems ® and Whole Person Growth ® to teach valuable life lessons which we call: It’s Bigger Than Volleyball! ®

Volleyball1on1 will be hosting a parents meeting May 19th, at 6 pm to help educate you on our coaching systems. The goal of this parent meeting is so that you can reinforce these systems at home so we can work together to help your child in the best manor possible.

For players and parents looking to see if their child likes volleyball and the class, we offer a discounted one time drop-in rate of $20. Parents can signup online and then attend the class that best fits their schedule. We encourage players and parents to drop-in sooner that later as friendships are being build in class, skills are being taught and most players who drop-in choose to continue with the class.

Andor Gyulai is well connected in the volleyball community. On Thursday May 19th Olympic Gold Medalist Phil Dalhausser joined St. Johns Volleyball Club for practice. Attendees got to take with Phil holding his gold medal plus got the opportunity to learn from Phil first hand how to get better at volleyball. Phil also joined parents after the kids clinic for  a parent meeting with Andor Gyulai and Phil Dalhausser on “Better Parenting Through Sports.”

Andor will invite Phil and other guest in the future. We look forward to having you attend those meetings.
