NEW ROCHELLE, NY - Iona College volleyball head coach Jon Killingbeck recently completed a three-week workout assisting with the US National Team. Currently the number two ranked team in the world, Coach Killingback worked alongside head coach Karch Kiraly and his staff.
“It was amazing to be in the gym with roughly the best 28 players in the country,” said Killingbeck. “But seeing how Coach Kiraly and his staff worked was priceless. “
For the majority of the workout, Coach Killingbeck helped with the tempo of the offense and helped establish the ideal baseline for all sets during practice.
Added Killingbeck, “I cannot wait to take what I learned in the USA gym and apply it to our team to help us be as great as we can be.”
Iona opens its 2014 campaign at defending national champion Penn State on August 29. The Gaels’ first home match is September 12 against Bryant.
