Steven VanderWerp


Steven began playing volleyball at the age of 4 and never looked back. His talent and dedication to the game brought him to the heights of Professional Beach Volleyball where he competed internationally and trained with some of the best athletes in the world. When he returned to West Michigan, his love of the sport and passion for teaching young people how to play and hone their skills led him to establish the West Michigan Michigan Beach Volleyball.
