Youth Volleyball – Encourage and Instill Confidence

Posted on 26 July 2010 by Chuck Rey

youth volleyball Youth Volleyball – Encourage and Instill Confidence volleyballAs a college coach, the following provided an interesting perspective on coaching youth.  I realized that the same principles to coaching apply, no matter the age.  Here is a question I received from a former player that coaches on the side:

I am working with an 8th grader at the end of the week that wants to
make the middle school team in a month, but has never played volleyball before. Any ideas of things I could do with her?

As great a coach as you are, you are not going to convert this player into a superstar in a week or month.  In the short amount of time you have, the best thing you can do is build confidence in her by focusing on the positive things she does.  Continue Reading

July 4th Volleyball Tournaments

Posted on 02 July 2010 by Chuck Rey

AVP volleyball Chicago 300x158 July 4th Volleyball Tournaments volleyballLast year, the AVP Tour stopped in Coney Island for the July 4th tournament.   Growing up in Chicago, I remember a few stops coming through Chicago for that weekend.  I wonder why the AVP does not have consistent dates for tournaments, like 4th of July weekend in Chicago.  Chicago is a great venue and I know Chicago is a favorite stop among pros.  I would think consistent dates each year, like the Indy 500 or The Masters, would generate more repeat business.  Maybe the FIVB schedule in conjunction with AVP budget issues has something to do with the scheduling.

So where is good volleyball being played over the July 4th weekend?
