Nikki Cannon - Varsity Volleyball

I am from Southern California and have been doing fundamental volleyball training for several years and sports performance training for over 6 years. Most recently my twin and I started a competitive traveling volleyball club, ZIVA (Zone-In-Volleyball-Academy) here in Wichita Falls where I had the privilege of coaching the 14’s team last season and have taken on the Club Director role as well. While in California I worked closely with the Fusion Volleyball program and Valencia High school Women’s Volleyball organizing and running sports performance sessions and private fundamental lessons and have helped numerous players sign with Division I programs from across the country. My passion is to push these girls to the “next level” with a solid fundamental foundation that will give them the best opportunity for success as an athlete. To me Coaching is helping an athlete prepare, develop and improve their volleyball game. I believe in teaching, training, and instructing my players off and on the court and providing an exciting, positive and encouraging experience.
