Bill Gates Believes the AVCA Convention is Extremely Important

Posted on 19 May 2013 by Chuck Rey

Bill Gates volleyball 300x200 Bill Gates Believes the AVCA Convention is Extremely Important volleyballThe now philanthropic Bill Gates starts this TED talk by saying, “Everyone needs a coach.” In Bill’s riveting speech about teachers, he provides information on why the United States is performing so poorly in all education subjects in comparison with the rest of the world. Shanghai, China ranks #1 in the world in Reading, Science and Math. Part of the reason Shanghai is #1 is because younger teachers get the opportunity to watch master teachers. Continue Reading

13 Volleyball Quotes for 2013

Posted on 08 January 2013 by Chuck Rey

misty may gold medal 13 Volleyball Quotes for 2013 volleyballA recent Inc. article came out with 12 motivational quotes for 2013 (why 12, I don’t know?). So I decided to embark upon a journey to find 13 volleyball quotes for 2013. Unfortunately, it was more difficult than I imagined. Quotes of many of our great coaches and players are scarcely found throughout the internet. Google searches found some poor selections. I literally read through a number of journal articles to find many of these quotes. The task ended up being quite rewarding as I learned a bit through the research. Following are my findings icon wink 13 Volleyball Quotes for 2013 volleyball

1. “Most change is evolutionary, not revolutionary. As we start a new year, let’s find the practicable and ‘celebrate-able'; let’s stay congruent with our messaging, creative in our efficiency, and, most of all, let’s give ourselves new opportunities to dream.” ~ Kathy DeBoer Continue Reading

Doug Beal for President

Posted on 11 May 2012 by Chuck Rey

Doug Beal FIVB President Doug Beal for President volleyballIn an election year, there is no better option for President than Doug Beal! He’s not a Democrat, not a Republican, nor Independent. He’s just Doug. I’m sure he has the wit and capacity to do a better job than most politicians, but the world is better off to keep him in volleyball. Doug Beal, CEO of USA Volleyball, is running for President of the FIVB.

Doug’s launched a website for his race to FIVB President: DougBeal.org The only problem I see with his campaign is a wicked good campaign slogan, so I’ve decided to come up with a few of my own: Continue Reading

Doug Beal Announces FIVB Presidential Candidacy

Posted on 16 February 2012 by Chuck Rey

As much as I appreciate Dr. Doug Beal’s effort and tremendous job he does for USA Volleyball, I believe his involvement as FIVB President will only help grow volleyball in the U.S. I especially believe this could lead to a true FIVB Beach Tour stop in the U.S., particularly Manhattan Beach, that would really help the game, similar to that of golf and tennis with the Masters and U.S. Open.

USA Volleyball’s Success is Open Source

Posted on 03 March 2011 by Chuck Rey

doug beal marv dunphy carl mcgown hugh mccutcheon 300x226 USA Volleyballs Success is Open Source volleyballToday, I listened to an audio recording of USA Volleyball’s Head Coach Hugh McCutcheon’s Q & A presentation at last December’s AVCA Convention in Kansas City.  A question raised to Hugh was, “How does the world perceive the success of USA Volleyball when it does not have a professional league?”.  Hugh’s response was based on the United States’ culture of “fighting until the end”, competitive advantages, and coaching methodologies.  Of which I agree, but these are small pieces of a larger puzzle.  An Open Source puzzle.

USA Volleyball CEO and 1984 Gold Medal Winning Coach

Excerpts from the FIVB Manual

In volleyball defense, we want to be aggressive to create opportunities to score points.

The coach must train his team to actively “win” the game as opposed to waiting for the opponent to “lose” the game. Continue Reading
