Just one day left in the Volleyball England Level 3 coaching course.

On this fourth day we covered blocking and defensive systems. There was a bit of setter training mixed in for good measure. Carrying on with the youth theme, the morning was spent looking at how strength and muscle mass develops relative to an individual’s peak height velocity (think growth spurt). That eventually led into looking at physical training methods and ways to evaluate some aspects of player condition (useful for non-youth players too).

Thursday is exam day. I know some of my classmates are sweating it. 🙂
