Head coach Robert Bethea founded Arroyo Volleyball Club as a way to grow the sport of volleyball and nurture young bump-set-spikers into confident and healthy individuals. The nonprofit organization deploys a professional cast of coaches—all certified through the USA Volleyball Coaching Accreditation Program—to locations throughout Durham, where they conduct practices, summer camps, and tournaments and invite all players to participate regardless of their experience level or whether they have springs implanted in their fingertips.
To ensure each student receives personal attention, the club strives for a 6:1 player-to-coach ratio and never lets it exceed 12:1. Instructors encourage each athlete to improve physical fitness and partake in Arroyo's team-based learning dynamic, which instills the lifelong virtues of responsibility, discipline, and always joining spontaneous massage trains.
