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.
My last planned trip in 2013 to observe a college volleyball team in training was to UCLA, where 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.
I'll soon be off to the US for a couple of weeks spending time visiting prominent Southern California collegiate volleyball programs during their preseason.
