We are thrilled to announce that Tstreet Volleyball Club, the #1 ranked volleyball club in California, has joined Strikers Soccer Club, Reign Wrestling, and The Treigning Lab as part of the Fairmont Athletic Academy at our San Juan Capistrano campus.

Founded and operated by two-time Olympic gold medalist Troy Tanner, Tstreet “is dedicated to developing athletes, beginner to elite, to their fullest potential in an enjoyable, serious teaching environment.” Their credentials speak for themself: Tstreet players have gone on to be high school state champions, collegiate national champions, and professional players. Troy also coached Olympians Kerri Walsh-Jennings and Misty May-Treanor from 2006 to 2008, culminating in a standout season with an Olympic gold medal . But they’ve also trained first-timers, young beginners, tweens, and teens — all in the hopes of instilling an appreciation for the sport they love so much.

“Tstreet is an incredible partner for us because our missions are so closely aligned,” said Fairmont President Chad Jackson. “They share our desire to tap into kids’ potential and maximize their success. By combining exemplary volleyball training with an exemplary education, we’re able to offer a one of a kind program to the South County volleyball community.”

According to Paige Hurlock, Executive Director of Tstreet, the pairing of the two organizations constitutes a “layered” partnership and provides for a number of exciting opportunities for SJC students even beyond the coaching which will be made available to our middle school athletic academy students:

  • Addition of Sand Volleyball Courts at SJC — This spring, Fairmont will become home to three state of the art sand volleyball courts, and Tstreet will run two different programs for our students there:

Tsand (Introductory Sand Volleyball Clinics) – Athletes aged 8-13 who are new to sand volleyball will receive a well-rounded introduction to the fundamentals of the sport. Highly qualified coaches will instruct on passing, setting, hitting, and serving in the sand. Muscle development, coordination and ball control improve significantly through sand training. Athletes will receive constructive feedback allowing them to improve … quickly!

Tstreet Elite Beach (Intermediate/Advanced Clinics) – Elite Beach is for serious athletes looking to improve their beach game and develop more advanced techniques and patterns. Indoor players wishing to improve strength, jump higher, and increase ball control are also encouraged to take part in this clinic. A highly qualified coaching staff will instruct in advanced sand skills, providing countless reps and feedback. Players will be grouped by age and skill level.

  • Volleyball Program Development — To augment the strategic partnership with Tstreet, Fairmont will be bringing on staff to oversee the development and expansion of SJC’s comprehensive volleyball program– sand and indoor play; elementary through high school students; beginner to elite status; and P.E. classes to Varsity CIF play.

Troy Tanner has long known about our school’s reputation for educational excellence. While he always believed there would be great synergy between the two organizations, the distance between Tstreet’s Irvine location and our north county campuses posed too much of a barrier to overcome. But with the opening of our South County campus in 2020, the timing was finally right to enter into a partnership.

At Fairmont, we know that excellent teachers help create excellent students. We also know that excellent coaches help create excellent athletes. So if your child is interested in volleyball — whether trying it out for the first time or aspiring to be an elite player, competing at the highest level — Fairmont SJC is the place for them!
