“Sand volleyball is a place that requires all skills and you have to be able to do all of them with your partner it really is a joy to push yourself to be great in all areas of the game this is the reason why I moved more towards the sand scene.”
Mike moved to California in 2015 with his loving wife and 3 kids that now play volleyball as well, Mike now is enjoying teaching his kids the sport that he fell in love with.
