A while back Coach Rey offered up some tips for newbie coaches. It’s definitely worth a read. I’ve commented on several of his points in prior posts myself. The first thing on the list is finding a volleyball coaching mentor. I talked about that in Making Mentorship Part of the Process. Rey also advocates watching as much volleyball as you can, which I too recommended in the post Tip for Coaching Volleyball: Watch more volleyball! Some of the recommendations are obvious, like educating yourself and getting out there and gaining as much coaching experience as possible.

There’s one unique bit in the article labeled “The Coach is the Weather”. I can tell you from experience it’s very, very true.
