The final day of the Volleyball England Level 3 coaching course featured a morning that looked at transition and then the final micro coaching session. Four of us had to combine to develop and run a coaching session. It covered block & defense, plus serving. My bit was a combined drill that pulled elements of blocking and defensive positioning together. Probably would have been more interesting if I’d had a proper team rather than a bunch of coaches as participants. It went pretty well anyway, though.
After that it was exam time. Two hour test which covered the majority of what we talked about in the classroom sessions. That finished things off, with only a wrap up discussion at the end. From here I have to log my team trainings and then have an assessor come to a training session down the line to complete the whole set of requirements for full certification.
The day wrapped up with watching the first round of matches in the NEVZA U17 championships. The Norwegian girls had a really excellent setter.
