About

Director and founder, Ed Ratledge has built a business all around his passion and love for teaching volleyball to students of all ages. He has been coaching and playing volleyball for the last 20 years and focuses his coaching on the fundamentals of volleyball including proper movement, mechanics and playing strategy.

Most of VolleyOC’s instruction for youth and adult players is run through the City of Newport Beach’s Recreation Department which provides top notch locations like Corona del Mar State Beach, Newport Coast Community Center, and West Newport Community Center. VolleyOC also runs after school programs at Newport Elementary and Mariner’s Elementary.
Top to bottom, VolleyOC presents one of the country's greatest values in recreational instruction. Our programs average between $5 and $15 per hour of instruction. Doesn't seem like a bargain to you? Just imagine trying to work with a top 20 NBA, MLB, or PGA professional for a similar price. You won't find better or cheaper instruction anywhere, which is why VolleyOC has risen to the top. Better product at a lower cost is always a winning combination.
