Here’s a question I’m pretty sure I’ve not been asked before.
What are some of the questions that a coach can ask the upcoming and beginner coaches to ascertain their understanding of the sport of volleyball?
I think this is a subject folks can have some fun with. 🙂
There are some variables here in terms of which direction you want to go with the questions. For example, is this meant to be a job interview kind of situation? If so, then the questions should probably focus a lot on the expectations of the job. They could be along the lines of:
- Describe different defensive/offensive systems
- What are your teaching cues for <insert skill here>?
- How are the zones on the net numbered?
- What is your set terminology?
Broader volleyball knowledge
In terms of some broader understanding of the sport:
- What’s the FIVB? USAV?
- Who’s the current national team coach?
- Name X players from the national team?
- What are the major international competitions?
- What are the major domestic competitions?
- Who are the current national champions?
- Who are some of the most influential coaches in the sport?
Those are ones that come off the top of my head. No doubt there are plenty more.
