The other day I shared the developing details of my August/September volleyball trip around Europe. In short, I’m organizing stops in England, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and Poland. A big part of the trip will focus on the youth side of things – visiting juniors clubs and youth/junior national team training. I’ll also spend time in the professional ranks, especially in August. I’ve been asked to present at a coaching conference as well.

My plan on this trip is to generate a whole bunch of content.

I plan to record audio and video all throughout the trip, and share what I think you will find interesting, useful, thought-provoking, etc. That could take the form of any of the following:

  • Personal updates and observations
  • Practice and training session video
  • Conversations with coaches
  • Coaching conference presentation(s)
  • Interesting drill/game descriptions where I can’t get video
  • Live events

And anything else that might come up.

If I can’t provide video or audio for some reason (e.g. lack of permission), then I’ll write-up the material, provide diagrams, etc. as a text update, or in conjunction with an audio I record separately.

In terms of live events, there may be opportunities for me to live stream some of what I’m doing. Also, I could potentially do live Q&A type things.

How much content I’m looking to generate

My intention is to post one piece of content for each day I’m on the trip (note: I’ve already blown that target away!). That doesn’t mean, however, that I expect to post something new every day. Between travel and other schedule elements that’s just not realistic.

What is likely to happen is that I “batch” upload. By that I mean I’ll post several new items in a given day. Given what I said above about keeping the content more oriented toward shorter, more topic-focused pieces, I’d be pushed in this direction anyway.

I’m really excited for all the interesting material I think could potentially come out of this trip.

Here’s the thing…

This is not going to be a cheap trip. Just the flights across the Atlantic and back cost me about $1300. Moving around from place to place in Europe is going to increase that quite a bit, even using airline miles where I can. Then there’s having a roof over my head at night. Oh, and I probably should eat as well. Though I can afford to skip a meal here and there. 🙂

That being the case, I’m looking to defray the costs of a trip a bit by asking for a little something for access to the content I’ll develop, which I’ll put up on the same platform I use for my coaching courses.

There are two ways you can get access.

Option #1: Straight registration

The most direct, simplest way to get access to the material I post from the trip is to register for it. I’m asking for $25. Since I’ve already posted more than 100 pieces of content, it works out to less than $0.25 each (and falling with each new update). I think that’s quite reasonable.

Option #2: Get it as a bonus

The second way gives you an opportunity to get even more great content for your money.

If you sign up for one of my courses, I’ll give you access to the trip material as a free bonus.

Sound good?
