Hello! My name is Rodney Downing, the Inventor of The Edge Pro Volleyball Trainer. Welcome to the launch of our new blog where we are going to discuss the world of Volleyball through the eyes of coaches, parents and players. I have invested many hours into creating the best, most cost effective, volleyball spike trainer and all-around volleyball training aid in the volleyball world.
I studied at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and I served in the Marine Corps Reserves as an infantry man for 9 years including Desert Storm, the first gulf war. I spent most of my life in manufacturing and have always tinkered with invention ever since I was little. I believe I see the world in a little different way. I often see products as I think they should be not as they are and believe a careful eye and a small amount of innovation can turn what’s good into something great.
I’ve been married for the last nineteen years and have one child, Alyssa. She’s the sole reason that the Edge Volleyball Pro Trainer was conceived. to provide her with at home training and answer the age-old question of “How am I supposed to practice volleyball at home”. How does a player get better off of the court in the confines of my own home? I look forward to elaborating on this conception in the future with you!
In our upcoming articles we will be exploring The Edge Pro Volleyball Trainer and volleyball in general. My perspective is from that of a Parent Coach, spectator and a once bar league player. We are lucky to have Alec Lannigan working with us. His passion and expertise for game of volleyball, in coaching and in the volleyball training world is going to give a unique perspective to our product and our world of volleyball!
I feel privileged to be part of The Edge Pro Volleyball Trainer and helping players across the country reach their dreams.
So dream big, practice for perfection and reach your full potential.
