Volleyball Instructor – Al Taylor Biography
Al Taylor has had a life of volleyball and continues to help develop skills and personal characteristics for life. Volleyball is
such a special sport with its high skill levels, interpersonal relationships and teamwork. No other sport involves speed,
precision, changing levels of play, very short contacts, power, and finesse. When you add in the factor of interpersonal
relationships the game reaches new levels of difficulty. Even substitutions are brief and limited, creating more dynamics
for both players and coaches as they work to find the correct mix.

Al began his career with 5 years at University of Calgary. At completion of his degree he made the Canadian National
Men’s Team and was team captain for the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. He remained with the National team for the next
5 years competing in several Pan Am Games, 3 World Championships, 5 NORCECA championships, Commonwealth
Games, and many other world tournaments. Upon returning to Calgary after several years away he helped form the
first volleyball club in Calgary for young male and female athletes.

                                                                                                                             19
Teaching in Calgary for the next 31 years saw Al work with hundreds of high school athletes and coaches resulting in
several provincial championships. Club development, coach workshops and volleyball camps filled days, evenings and
weekends throughout the years.

His work with the National team led to one year as an assistant coach and then 4 years as the head FISU games coach
completing a cycle with the World Student Games in Zagreb, Yugoslavia.

Al is a level 4-5 coach, and after his retirement from the Calgary Board of Education he became the assistant coach for
the University of Calgary Dinos Womens Volleyball Team where he is coaching today. Working with the Dinos young
women has been very rewarding and the team has competed in the National Championships the last three years.

Volleyball Instructor – Diane Johnson
Diane studied Education and Kinesiology at the University of Lethbridge and returned
to Calgary to start her teaching career. She taught physical education, leadership
and sports medicine at Centennial High School in Calgary for five years. Diane
has always had a keen interest in health and wellness and in 2010 she chose
to leave her teaching career to further her own learning in holistic health
modalities. Diane is now a certified yoga teacher, holistic nutritional
consultant and essential oil educator and runs her own wellness consulting
business. Her love of teaching and of working with young people has led
Diane to direct a large portion of her wellness consulting to working with
students and student athletes, sharing the benefits of yoga and a holistic
perspective on nutrition which she believes are a missing necessity among
young people today.

Diane has also been involved in the sport of volleyball for most of her life. She
played through the club system in Calgary, played one year of postsecondary and
then turned her interests and efforts to coaching. Diane has been coaching volleyball at
various age groups in Alberta for the last 19 years. The bulk of her coaching in Calgary has
taken place with 403 Selects Volleyball Club where she has been involved as Coach, Board
Member, President and Co-President. She has also worked for the last 10 years with HITT Volleyball
as a coach, yoga instructor and nutritional consultant in many of their summer camps and developmental programs
throughout Alberta.

Diane believes in the power of sport to impact the lives of our youth for the better and for the long term. Being
physically active and developing motor skills has its health benefits for certain, but the life skills learned through a team
sport like volleyball are perhaps the most impactful lessons to be had. The court in essence becomes a classroom for
teaching about life. Diane believes wholeheartedly in incorporating these life lessons on character building, respect,
hard work, discipline, team work, communication, cooperation, self confidence and self-advocacy into her practices and
court sessions. Her holistic perspective on health and wellness is also something that Diane weaves into her coaching
benefiting her athletes with elements of mindfulness, yoga for athletes and sport nutrition.

hours of ground training with a mixture of theory, computer work and hands on flight
(fun) time for students to develop an understanding of sage and legal drone flight in
Canadian airspace. Manual flying skill will be emphasized, as well as a component of
abnormal and emergency procedures training. Automated flight modes will also
be introduced, to demonstrate photo, video and photogrammetry applications.

Flight training for each day will begin with site preparation, and crew briefings.
Flight operations will be conducted in teams of two candidates each –
after each exercise, the candidates will switch roles between being Pilot in
Command and Visual Observer. First demonstrations of new skills will be
flown by the instructor, with no more than one aircraft in the air at a time.
We will have up to three teams of two pilots flying an aircraft over their
designated space, under the direct supervision of the instructor. It is anticipated
that flight training will consist of 1.5 to 2 hours per day.

The overall goal of the training is for each candidate to gain a basic understanding
of their responsibilities as pilot in command of a Small RPA System, to a standard
that provides entry to the Basic License. This course is not intended to prepare the
candidates to write the Basic Exam – but to set a foundation for additional self study to
complete the exam successfully.
