Casey Jennings (@CaseyThomasJ) is a professional American beach volleyball player. Jennings has played beach volleyball at the AVP, Olympic, and FIVB level, and has won multiple awards and championships with AVP and FIVB

Jennings speaks about his belief that children should play multiple sports while growing up, relating this to his experience with his own child. While his own child began to excel at soccer, proving so with impressive individual and team achievements, Jennings and his wife, professional beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh Jennings, opted to not place their child in a club team program. Jennings supports the idea that youth playing multiple sports, season by season, is beneficial, until teenage years.
