T Street Comes to Lake Forest Courtesy of Troy Tanner

This past Friday was a good one indeed. One reason for the season was the Grand Opening of volleyball marvel Troy Tanner's T-Street Volleyball Club in Irvine, California. Tanner, a NCAA Champion player and coach, and Olympic Gold Medalist player and coach, has brought the laid-back beach ease of San Clemente's Tstreet turf to the industrial landscape of Irvine. His Tstreet hooligans who practice, spike, live and surf Tstreet are making the trek to his new 15,000 sq. ft. volleyball training center to enjoy a gym with 4 brand new volleyball courts, a training and conditioning center, an in-the-works parents lounge and viewing area, and even a Tstreet tie-dyed swag shop. Most of all they're coming for Troy Tanner, the Vince Lombardi of Volleyball, who coached Misty May and Kerri Walsh to a gold in the Beijing Olympics for women's beach volleyball. 

The Grand Opening was a full house event with hot pants, ponytails and flying volleyballs everywhere. Baja Fresh catered, tables boasted baskets of covetable auction items, and guests buzzed around the sparkling new facility. Throughout the evening, Kerri Walsh signed autographs, a "History Of" slideshow presentation was given, and coaches gave Karaoke presentations.
The center is an extension of Tanner's winning philosophy."We are committed to positive coaching and ensure a low player to coach ratio," says the Tstreet Team on their website. "Practices are modeled after Tanner’s extensive Olympic training background, and Tstreet players are taught proven as well as current movement patterns and systems."

Happy Monday, friends. Take it by the horns and make it a good one. Don't let it be manic or mediocre. As Mark Twain said, "Drag your thoughts away from your troubles... by the ears, by the heels, or any other way you can manage it."
