Find yourself a club where ALL players receive high-level training! At Jax Skyline, we implement a “Master Training” philosophy, where our Co-Directors- Hugh and Steph Hernesman- are leading the skill training for every athlete. Veteran coaches with 40+ years at the collegiate level combined, the Hernesman’s have prioritized a common training philosophy within the club. This is drawn upon their experience in learning from some of the best coaches from the highest levels of volleyball in the country!
If your goals are to maximize your talents and to prepare yourself to play at the next level, what better club to play for than the one run by coaches with over 40 years of college coaching experience?? Not only will you train at a high level, your family will also be a part of a POSITIVE, TEACHING and FAMILY oriented CULTURE. Winning is important, but only comes with great culture and great training.

NEW FOR 2020-21: USA Volleyball and AAU Volleyball age definitions have changed from September 1 to July 1. While we prefer and believe it to be best for athletes to play within the age that places them in their corresponding grade, there are some exceptions- especially at the younger levels. See the Age Definition chart below. If you have any questions, please email us at info@JaxSkyline.com.
NEW FAMILY CLUB INFO MEETING: Due to COVID-19 and to simply make things easier, we are hosting our 1st “Virtual” Club Informational Meeting through Zoom. We will discuss our club philosophy, training background and how Skyline takes our athletes to the next level!

More great news!! Coach Price at FSU enjoyed working with our camp last week that she asked to come back…and she’s going to bring Coach Hulsmeyer with her! This is another great opportunity for our area athletes to get additional training heading into club tryouts and their middle school seasons. This will be a one day camp on Friday, July 24th from 10-3.
NOTE: Just like our last camp, due to NCAA Dead Period restrictions, this is only open to athletes entering the 8th grade or younger. Click HERE to register!
Our 2020 College Coaches Camp was a HUGE success. Featuring Lead Instruction from Ryan Theis (Marquette), Dennis Hohenshelt (Penn State) and Matt Ginipro (App State)- in addition to Maggie Couture and Jordan Armstrong (Jacksonville University) and Jordana Price (Florida State) as court coaches along with our Skyline coaches- the camp was an incredible 3-day event.
This year, NCAA Dead Period rules prohibited DI coaches to work with any prospect that will be entering high school and some conferences went even further in restricting their coaches from doing any camps this summer whatsoever. Be on the lookout for more college coach camps and clinics for ALL AGES in the future, as we are very excited to use our college background to bring high level coaches and training to the Jacksonville volleyball community.
Special THANK YOU to Dennis Hohenshelt from Penn State for initiating the idea!

Last week, we saw a video on Twitter of a player out of Kansas who has been doing a lot of different challenges on her account. We were very impressed, so we challenged our setters to see how many consecutive sets they could do with two volleyball. Her record was 81 (click here to see it).
We got this yesterday and congratulations to Amelia Thieman from our 16 Royal on getting 99! Can anyone beat her???
In light of the current hiatus from practices and competitions, we’re going to feature highlight some of our teams from the Sunshine Classic National Qualifier recently. No one celebrates or has quite as much as our 14 Royal team. Tons of talent and energy.
Despite winning their Day 1 pool by going undefeated and then ending up in a 3-way tie for 1st on Day 2, the new tie-breaking procedures unfortunately sent 14 Royal to the Bronze bracket, where they were one win away from a championship.
This is a club-best finish at a qualifier and we look forward to more team and club success as Jax Skyline continues to grow!
