Established in 2013 by Samuel Torres, a passionate and dedicated teacher, volleyball coach, and professional volleyball athlete, ST7 Training Center is a family-owned and operated volleyball club that is small by design and intention. For nine seasons, ST7 has offered top-quality programming where teaching and developing young athletes in the art of competitive volleyball is the top priority. ST7 coaches and staff have an “always coaching” mentality with a goal of holistically developing every athlete to reach their highest potential. Coach Sammy’s vision of a training center where he can share his passion for volleyball in a healthy and encouraging environment has become a reality. ST7 now offers training programs for every age and level of athlete including club teams, elementary, middle, and high school training clinics, beach training, private and semi-private lessons, specialty clinics, camps, and more. ST7 remains grounded in the principles of discipline, respect, and the belief that one should “train a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Proverbs 22:6
The “S” and “T” in our name refer to our founder and director, Samuel Torres. “7” was the jersey number he wore during his career as a volleyball athlete. It is called a training center because we strongly believe that our training is not just about volleyball; we want to promote a healthy lifestyle involving the art of competitive volleyball and physical training.
