Jason Lochhead, better known as the Ginga Ninja, is one of the best coaches in beach volleyball. The man who built Vanuatu into a legitimate small power, took Ben Saxton and Chaim Schalk to their first Olympics and led Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena into the Tokyo Games, returned home to New Zealand and has since revived a dormant program. Now, New Zealand Beach Volleyball is on the cusp of qualifying for the Paris Olympic Games this weekend at the AVC Continental Cup.

Brad Fuller and Ben O’Dea talk about Lochhead’s impact on the program.
