Allen Alexander, owner and coach, established The Sand Club in 2007 and has officiated well over 1000 sand volleyball matches. Before The Sand Club, Coach Allen was an instructor from 1999-2003 and program director for Leona Group Arizona, LLC. In 2003-2004, he developed an entire coarse curriculum for East Valley Institute of Technology. Coach Allen applies his years of experience in preparing daily lesson plans to his coaching. In 2009, Coach Allen established The Starter Club for youth volleyball players that did not make their school volleyball team and young aspiring beach volleyball athletes. Then in 2010, Allen started networking with professional beach volleyball players to offer more advanced training for The Starter Club players that were looking for something more, which lead to The Sand Club Academy in 2014.
Coach Allen is originally from Milwaukee Wisconsin and is married to Heather Alexander with two daughters Gabby and Kylie. When he is not playing, running events, or coaching volleyball he is enjoying his family. During the mornings, Coach Allen runs a web company with his wife. Coach Allen loves pizza and stand-up comedy.
p1440 was co-founded by three-time Olympic Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings and husband, pro beach player and seven-time AVP Open Champion, Casey Jennings in order to create more and better opportunities in the game that continues to give them so much priceless life experience and personal fulfillment.View p1440's Bio ⟩
