James Annells

James Annells is the lead coach for the beach volleyball camp alongside Anna Rasmussen.

Both Coaches are experienced teachers in their other lives and bring a wealth of knowledge about beach volleyball to the camp. A quick insight into their experience and passion for teaching and coaching.

James "I have been playing beach volleyball now for 8 years with the highlight of my career so far is representing England at a world tour qualifier event in Cambodia in 2019. I fell in love with the sport when I moved to North Devon in 2013 and was introduced to this version of the game by Denise Austin who was coaching from the school I had got a job teaching at. It was Denise who mentored me and brought me on board with Beach Volleyball Inc and initially involved me as an assistant coach with the England Junior programme she was running. Since then I have taught in schools and coached volleyball in the UK, coached on volleyball camps around Europe and coached alongside teaching for a year in Australia. The experience and skills that I have learned coaching alongside world-class coaches in both countries have enabled me to develop as a coach myself and I have enjoyed this so much that I have looked to move away from teaching and towards full time coaching. As a coach, I have had the opportunity of working with complete beginners both adult and child, developing juniors to play at the national team level and coaching one of the England men's teams at the world tour level. Each style of coaching is very different, but I love the unique challenge coaching provides at any level, with sharing my love of the sport being at the core of every session I run. This passion for the sport, love of meeting new people and maintaining friendships made through shared experiences and enjoyment of seeing people progress and excel is why I have continued to coach and run sessions, despite the circumstances of the last few years. During 2021 I have been lucky enough to take on most of the weekly coaching at the Academy of Beach Sports in North Devon, alongside working with Fireball Beach Volleyball, running camps and tournaments across the UK and abroad."

Anna, "I have always loved sport and volleyball has always been one of my favourites since an early teenager. After high school, I started coaching junior teams indoors and have continued to coach since at different schools and locations in Australia. When I started playing beach volleyball, I fell in love with the community as much as the game the more involved I became through playing and coaching. Watching others succeed throughout their own sporting journey has always brought me joy and a sense of fulfilment if I am involved in the coaching process, which is why I enjoy teaching all the same. Since being in the UK, it has become more obvious to me that no matter what walk of life you're from, being able to "play" enriches lives significantly and I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of that."
