Core Power for Volleyball with Elaine Roque

core volleyball power 207x300 Core Power for Volleyball with Elaine Roque volleyballCoaching volleyball encompasses so much more than strictly coaching volleyball ;)  In fact, there are times I enjoy the overall process more than simple court time.  The process includes many of the categories listed within my blog, such as mental, nutrition, statistics, and others that are not included: marketing, logistics, player/parent “counseling”, etc.  I believe a piece of this website puzzle that I have omitted until this point is exercise.  Exercise is comprised of many parts, weight training, conditioning, core training, plyometrics, etc… all to be combined with proper nutrition.

Division I Women’s Volleyball Recruiting Perspective

Posted on 28 February 2011 by Chuck Rey

ncaa womens volleyball Division I Womens Volleyball Recruiting Perspective volleyballThere are 329 Division I Women’s Volleyball programs.  Not all are fully funded.  Conservatively, there are 8 scholarships per school (those with full funding versus those without full funding).  This comes out to 2,632 available scholarships over a four year period.  Divide this number by four which means there are only 658 available scholarships per year.  Divide this 658 number by four (roughly, the number of positions – setters, OHs, MHs, RH/liberos) = 164.5 scholarships per position per year.

10 Reasons Why Your Players Don’t Listen

volleyball ears 10 Reasons Why Your Players Dont Listen volleyball1.      You stink.
Literally.  If your antiperspirant isn’t getting the job done (maybe you forgot to use some that day) or you splashed on a bit too much aftershave or perfume, your players are more worried about getting away from you than listening to you.

2.      Your breath stinks.
Seriously, if your breath stinks, your players are figuring out the best way to dodge the stench secreted by every word.  They probably are also holding their breath.  If they turn red, it’s likely not from what you are saying, but they can’t breathe.  Chew some gum. Continue Reading

USAV Impact Clinic

USAV impact clinic USAV Impact Clinic volleyballThe USAV Palmetto Region is where I started coaching many years ago (although I did have a year stint in Cactus Region, but I wasn’t ready to coach way way back then). I appreciate the opportunity to give back to a region that has helped me to get to where I am today. John Kessel and Palmetto Region Commissioner, Jimmy Peden, invited me to be a panelist on the most recent Impact Clinic for the Palmetto Region. It was a fun opportunity to join two creative thinkers of the game as well as a great opportunity to refresh my mind on the fundamentals of the game. Here are some notes I took throughout the clinic: Continue Reading
