Once, back in my Sweden coaching days, a reporter asked me if I was getting a sense of deja vu as our match unfolded. I honestly told him I wasn't.
When I coached in Sweden I periodically had some of the local parents coming to our training sessions. They had a grand old time watching the team at work.
It's always interesting to understand the systems teams and organizations operate under in various places and the impact they have on how they can operate.
I may not be in the US to celebrate Thanksgiving, but I can still be thankful for some of the volleyball coaching contributions to my life the last 12 months.
In which I develop a volleyball try-out plan which seems reasonable but is totally overwhelmed by the number of players who show up.
Sometimes you need to look at things from a different perspective to find ways to help your players improve and increase their volleyball IQ.
Wherein I finally get around to reviewing the 2013-14 season from a coaching perspective in terms of things I did well and things I could have done better.
Sometimes finishing in a position a little lower than perhaps you could have is a great way to end a volleyball tournament! :-)
