Dennis Collins


So Cal Beach Native Dennis Collins or “Dansin’ Dee” to locals is a former California Beach Volleyball Association “AAA Rated” player and Pro Qualifier, He’s been coaching for 25+ years on the beach and combines his Beach Volleyball expertise with a Masters Degree in Science and professional Certificate in Ergonomics which provide him great insight into teaching his students excellent Volleyball mechanics by breaking down skills into segments which are easier to learn. His humorous and creative style make learning fun and challenging.

Dennis was featured in a Volleyball series on the Fine Living Channel in 2003 and 2004. He teaches all levels from raw beginners to CBVA Rated players and is a favorite of many spouses, friends and relatives of AVP players. He’s also a former CBVA Tournament Director, and served on the CBVA Board of Directors for 4 years. He’s one of the most popular, many say the most popular Volleyball coaches in Southern California as his classes quickly sell out and his students acquire solid Volleyball mechanics very quickly.

Beach Volleyball is a combination of so many invigorating and healthy aspects… physical fitness, strategy, mental toughness, playfulness, “unbridled swagger”… and above all it’s a game of energy and for many a celebration of the soul by getting away from work and life’s daily pressures. After all…. were just big kids sprawling, leaping, sprinting and diving in the ultimate sand box aren’t we? What could be more natural or more fun?” Hopefully, I’ll see you at the beach.
