Since 1991, Henry Russell (aka Russ) has been involved in the sport of volleyball both as a professional beach player and coach for USA Volleyball and South Bay Beach Volleyball Club (SBBVC). Henry was a player on the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) tour for 7 years (‘92-‘99) and was one of the top ranked players at the time. He was crowned "Champion" when he won the 1997 AVP Cape Cod Grand Slam Open Tournament; with his partner Mark Kerins, defeating Mike Whitmarsh and Mike Dodd, becoming the first Floridian to win an AVP tournament. In 1996, he was awarded AVP's Most Improved Player and in 1999 was labeled as having the “Best Hands on the Beach” by Volleyball Monthly.
He has both won and lost to this sport’s greatest players in the world which has made him appreciate all that this sport has to give, and he is ready to pass the lessons he has learned on to the next generation. He says he learned early in his AVP career that there is a vast difference between being a good player and a great one; being a great player is not a function of circumstance, it is largely a result of a conscious choice.
Henry is the father to two boys, husband to a wonderful wife, professional within his career and a Marine Corps veteran
