Volleyball coaches sometimes operate from a position of fear. Fear of failure. Fear of losing a job. We can use that fear to motivate us to succeed, though.
You ever have a volleyball game where just about anything that can go wrong does? The men's team I coach had that happen last night in a league match.
Getting players court time can be one of the most challenging aspects of coaching in a competitive environment. Circumstances can define the options.
In September 2013 I made a trip to UCLA to observe the women's team there in training. I found them talking about a book, of all things.
My 2013 summer volleyball coaching tour continued at preseason NAIA #20 ranked Cal State San Marcos. Finally a chance to watch decidedly more normal players.
My 2013 tour of US collegiate volleyball programs included a couple of days at Long Beach State, multiple time national champs and from whence Misty May came.
A good day with the URI volleyball program has started my trip off well and given me some good material for future posts on training stuff.
During my first Summer in England I returned to the US for a couple of weeks to visit Southern California college volleyball programs during preseason.
