Randy Wishmyer transforming 17s BLACK SMACK

npa-logoThis season our 17s BLACK SMACK team has had the honor of working with Randy Wishmyer. Randy has been coaching for the National Pitching Association  for the past 18 of his 28 years as a coach, helping pitchers improve their skills both as individual players and team members.

Randy has brought the four legs of the NPA/RDBI’s methodology (bio-mechanics, strength/conditioning, nutrition and mental/emotional preparation) to volleyball where he has been working exclusively with our 17s black smack team.

randy_imageRandy believes strongly that the science-based research the NPA’s provides to athletes is one of the driving forces behind its mission to better inform, instruct, and inspire players to raise their level of play, to stay healthy, and enjoy playing longer.

He’s only been working with the team for a short period of time, but the results are already starting to show. At the 2013 Holiday classic, an open-national boys club volleyball tournament, our 17s BLACK SMACK captured the 18 open division championship! A feat (17s winning the 18s division) that has only happened one other time at the holiday classic!

The HBC rocks the 2013 Holiday Classic!

All hail Coach Kasey and The HBC 17s Black Smack! Once again they proved they are one of the top teams in the country at any level in club volleyball by bringing home the 18 Open Championship at the 2013 SCVA Holiday Classic Tournament. With a convincing win versus Balboa Bay 18s in the Semi~Final and a monumental comeback down 1~0 against Baja 18s, Coach Kasey and The HBC staff conducted the team magnificently. Congratulations!

How about those 16s, what a run for Coach “T-n-T” and the boys! With a 2 sets to 0 win over the defending National Champions SCVC 16s in the Quarter Finals, the TEAM proved they are a tough team to beat!  After finishing with a Bronze Medal at the Holiday Classic, The Samurai Sword FORGED members of the HBC 16 Black Smack “WILL” continue their STEADY MARCH to the top of the 16s Division! NEXT MAN UP!

Kudos to Coach Sam and The HBC 14s Black Smack for a FANTASTIC ONE WEEK TURNAROUND and their Bronze Medal performance at the 2013 Holiday Classic. With TOURNAMENT KNOCKOUT WINS over Balboa Bay 14s and 949/14s, Coach Sam, Angelo and the TEAM look to have a very bright future this year in the 14s Division! NO NEED TO MOVE that 401-k!

Finally, a salute to Coach Cape and The HBC 18 Black Smack for coming together as a TEAM for the 2013 Holiday Classic. This TEAM effort and demonstration of The HBC PRIDE resulted in a 12th place finish!  18s TOP 10 HERE WE COME!
