Established in 2013 by Samuel Torres, a passionate and dedicated PE teacher, volleyball coach, and professional athlete, ST7 Training Center has continued to thrive and grow. Coach Sammy’s vision of a training center where he can share his passion for volleyball and teach the fundamentals and skills necessary to succeed to young athletes in a healthy and encouraging environment has now grown to include two locations; one in Eustis and a second in Tavares. ST7 Training Center now offers training programs for every age and level of athlete including: club teams, mini club teams, beach teams, 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 volleyball and physical training.
