What Coaches Should Focus On

Heather Vahjen gave a great session on recruiting, and I spoke on “What Coaches Should Focus On vs What Coaches Typically Focus On”. We had a very nice turnout out and appreciated the attentive and eager coaches that wanted to continue to learn.

  1. Many players do better when they understand the basic motor learning principles behind the skills that they are practicing.
    When learning motor skills, players shouldn’t try to take in too much information at once. It works best to break skills down into keys or cues to help process the information. This helps players commit the information to memory and recall what needs to be done during the execution of the skill in practice or competition.
    Volleyball coaches and players know that serving and passing are the two most important skills in volleyball.
    Coaches should include feedback on serve and pass quality during practice. They should focus on both accuracy and speed.
