We coaches encourage our players to develop their Volleyball IQ through the analysis of video. We can use it ourselves as well. This episode of the podcasts talks about how.

My guest, Mark Lebedew, is a former national team coach for the Australian men, with experience in Olympic qualifications, World Championships, Volleyball Nations League, and more. He’s also a long time professional volleyball coach in Europe, most recently in Poland. Mark’s three German championships and a Champions League bronze medal earned at Berlin definitely brought him to many people’s attention in the volleyball world. You can find his thoughts about coaching and our sport on his blog at marklebedew.com. Mark is also my partner on the Volleyball Coaching Wizards project.

In the Conversation, Mark and I alluded to a series of blog posts he’d posted where he used video to examine what actually happened in a set of game situations. Here’s the 3rd in the sequence. From there you can reach the others.

Also in the episode Mark talks about Magic Eye, which he subsequently blogged about.
