Brock Davidiuk  (FOG Technical Director)

As a player, Brock Davidiuk always valued work ethic, passion and teamwork above all else. Committed to his sport from a young age, he preaches the same dedication and relentless practice which pushed him from being a local player in the club and school system to a National Team and Professional Player.

After graduating from UofA Brock began running position and skill specific FOG Volleyball Clinics with the goal of implementing better basics at both the beginner and advanced levels, as well as imparting the intricacies of the game he gained from playing at a level only a select few in our volleyball community get to partake in. Over the next 5 years Brock grew this FOG service whether it was himself coaching, or hiring only coaches he and FOG trusted to uphold the quality needed while away playing internationally. This service evolved into what is now Grass Roots Volley.
