"When you're serious about playing, you train with Steve Ijams."

"I'm both a player and a coach, and what Steve Ijams has helped me do is break down the game to its basic parts.  I've gained a much better understanding of the 'little things' that carry you to victory in a game since I started taking classes with him.  When you're serious about playing, you train with Steve Ijams"

"the ability to break down vast amounts of volleyball knowledge"

"Steven is one of those rare people in life who has a gift and has chosen to pursue it fully. He is an extraordinary coach, armed with the ability to breakdown vast amounts of volleyball knowledge into fun and meaning full lessons. But even more remarkable is the atmosphere he creates on the court.  He is a master motivator and demands your best, and at the same time, the genuine care and respect for his students is what sets him apart."
