Here’s the truth…

There’s a chance you are frustrated investing in weekly privates and putting so much energy into the sport, without the results you were hoping for. Maybe you have had improvements, moving up to the 1st team but you still aren’t involved in your team’s offense. You have the passion, the love, commitment and discipline and are doing all the “right things” but you aren’t seeing your hard work actually yield the results you want. I created the Middle Beast Academy to help Middle Blockers just like you. I want to turn more Middle Blockers just like you into Middle Beasts. I want to help the next generation of Middle Blockers get more sets, stuff more balls and become an offensive threat for their team.
When I was younger I was so frustrated with volleyball. I didn't know how to read the setter and I was always getting stuck in the middle of the court leaving me with a feeling of shame. My eyes were telling me one thing, my feet were telling me another and I felt like I couldn't help my team. I was always jealous of the middles that could get blocks and I had a really hard time not comparing myself to other middles that seemed to have a much bigger role on their team.

“ Where do I even start? ”

If you’re on this page, there’s a chance you have the same question.

If you don’t have a clear understanding of the principles and concepts that can make you a more consistent blocker and an offensive middle, it’ll steal the most precious resource - your time.

Can you relate to this…

You spend everyday in the summer playing volleyball, only to come back to the house and hit the ball against the wall, against the roof, you teach your sibling how to pepper, just so you can get extra touches but when you went to your next tryout in the fall, you didn’t make any of the teams you had hoped to make.

Which in return makes you have less confidence, anxiety and confusion - if you have what it takes, after a full summer playing as much volleyball as you could.

Maybe you made the first team but you are still not playing as much as you liked. You want to help your team more but don’t know how to contribute.

Imagine this…

Imagine waking up with a clear strategy of what you’re going to focus on in practice, rather than hoping your outcomes will be good or the coaches will give you the perfect tip

Imagine instead of getting blocked and feeling ashamed, you’re able to pivot to the next ball with the same confidence you had after your last kill

Imagine a future where you are a second ahead of the setter because you know what to look for picking up their tells and giveaways making your reads more efficient

Imagine a future where you can spike consistently around commit blockers because you understand timing, spacing, and how to be creative in your shot selection.

Imagine a future where your teammates and coaches are in constant disbelief because you always happen to make the right read and be in the right spot with your hands.

Imagine you know where the middles will spike before because you learned how to watch film and you were able to pick up on their hitting tendencies.

Imagine getting an email back from your dream school, that you previously thought was impossible

Why Middle Beast Academy?

The sport of volleyball is continuously evolving, getting faster and more powerful as Middles must become more creative and efficient to get points. The courses, clinics, drills and webinars are jam-packed full of the most updated principles and concepts but they are short to the point where you won’t feel overwhelmed.

The Academy is designed for the next generation of middles who eat/sleep/dream volleyball and desire to put as much time, energy and focus back into the sport and their development to becoming their best version as a blocker and offensive threat

& guess what? When you join you’ll get access to a monthly Middle Beast Master Class, where you’ll meet up and work with me and like minded athletes and coaches. So, you don’t have to grow alone - we’re all in this together. Whether it’s questions about technical, tactical or the inevitable debilitating emotions you’ll experience - I got your back.

I see you…

You’re willing to run through a wall to improve your game with extra reps, privates every other day and playing doubles outside of training but you feel something is missing. Maybe you got a late start to the sport and feel you’re down thousands of reps compared to other athletes at your age. You don’t want to leave your success up to chance and you want to continue to play as long as you can.

If you’re here now, it’s because you’re ready to level up your game and begin understanding the principles and concepts that professional and NCAA middles use to be more efficient and consistent.

The Middle Beast Academy is different than any other volleyball community out there because

It’s a membership so it is always evolving just like the sport of volleyball is. It is always updated with drills, clinics and more videos for you to learn as the sport changes

There is footage on several middles blockers so you can invest in which style you prefer rather than hoping for good outcomes

There is plenty of film of the physical game but also learning about the mentality of a middle is just as important

This membership is affordable for those at every stage of their journey. One month of membership is half the cost of a private lesson

Ready to spend less time being anxious and nervous on the court and begin playing the game you love with consistent excitement, confidence and joy?

I’m Here to Help!

Hi everyone, I'm Jeff Jendryk. Professional Middle Blocker, Silver Medalist, 2x Middle Blocker of the year in the German League, current member of Team USA, and Most Outstanding Player as a freshman winning the NCAA Division 1 National Championship.

Once I became a pro, I faced the hard reality that there was very little leadership, mentoring or coaching available to me. I was only scoring a couple points per game and didn't know what to do - I was always thinking about my mistakes, and lost confidence in myself. I needed someone to direct me on the right path but I didn’t have anyone to guide me. It turned out to be the best experience for me as I began to take more responsibility, watching hours upon hours of film on the best middles in the world and I started to get clear on the concepts and principles that I believed would help me become a more efficient blocker and offensive beast for my team.

As I began sharing my career as a professional middle blocker and a member of Team USA, I was shocked to see how many youth middle blockers were anxious, insecure and seemingly lost in how they can improve as a middle blocker, looking for any type of guidance.

I created this Academy to share the concepts that have helped me become a better attacker and blocker with the goal of creating content and drills that are easily understood to empower the next generation of middle blockers to learn and train the game like a pro, before they become one.

Step 1: Learn

Breaking down attacking and blocking where athletes fail, while learning how to train to become more efficient, starting with your eye work and foot work - with a live monthly Master Class each month

Step 2: Implement

Simple yet detailed drills for you to get to work, most drills only need a friend, coach or parent for you to work on the individual concept or principle.

Step 3: Feedback

I love when athletes send me videos of their attacking range or their split step movement to block to the pins. Just a quick video - followed by a small adjustment can lead to huge clarity and huge gains - I got your back each step of the way.

On to the next concept or principle - it’s important that you don’t rush through each concept and/or course. The strategies you have learned each month to build upon a strong foundation for success on the court in blocking and attacking.
