How to replace the Thin Beast – Phil Dalhausser

Posted on 02 July 2013 by Chuck Rey

This is a great video of Phil Dalhausser with his new partner Sean Rosenthal training “against” his old partner Todd Rogers with his new partner Ryan Doherty. I love how the old gold medal winning partners are training together and helping each new partnership out to be the best again. Volleyball is cool.

The Top 35 U.S. Players of All Time

Volleyball Magazine just came out with the Top 35 U.S. Players of All Time.  I appreciate the list to bring these great players to light and recognition to the history of our game.  I’m not sure if I agree with the order (especially Gene Selznick), but that’s half the fun of a list.  How many of these great players do you know and recognize?  I believe it is extremely important for the continued growth of our sport in the United States to know (and want to play like) these players.

Professional Beach Volleyball Player, Phil Dalhausser is a great Continue Reading

Beach Volleyball Strategy – an Analysis of Defense and Shot Selection

Posted on 01 February 2010 by Chuck Rey

Darren Baker is a friend of mine that’s been playing beach volleyball for years.  Darren began playing volleyball at a competitive level since 1998.  Cutting his teeth on beach/sand volleyball while also playing club volleyball at the University of San Diego before returning to the Augusta, GA area.  He has played numerous outdoor tournaments at an Open level, including Columbia: AVP, Clash and Crown, EEVB, and Fudpuckers events.  Personal highlights are having played against or with Olympians Jose Loiola, Ricci Luyties, Alan Alan, and Phil Dalhausser.phil dalhausser mike morrison Beach Volleyball Strategy   an Analysis of Defense and Shot Selection volleyball

By: Darren Baker

Looking at the statistics of doubles beach volleyball one might say to me: “But Darren, look at the number of blocks vs number of championships in last season’s AVP tour.  The top two blockers, Phil had 2.11 blocks per game and Sean had 1.71 blocks per game this translated into nine (9) championships, first on tour, and Hyden-Scott had four (4) championships second on tour.  You said that this isn’t important in DRILL Continue Reading

Yup, he and Jake Elliot out of Charleston, SC beat the #1 Qualifying Team, Continue Reading

A few weeks back, Jon asked for a little guidance with his blocking. I put together a piece for him which I later shared here: Continue Reading

Blocking Your Way to the AVP Tour

Posted on 13 April 2009 by Chuck Rey

jon guida Blocking Your Way to the AVP Tour volleyballA friend of mine is about to break on to the AVP Tour. Big Jon as he’s known by the locals of South Carolina. A natural athlete that played professional basketball in Europe and picked up volleyball in his mid-twenties. A 6’7″ frame along with a 35″ vertical doesn’t hurt either. He’s unsure of his blocking game and came to me looking for a few pointers. Following is my advice.

There is so much about blocking. Here is some thought, perspective, and insight.

Compare your blocking game with the greats. Phil Dalhausser, in 2008 he led the AVP Tour with 2.12 blocks per game. Lambert, 2.04 blocks per game. Gibb 1.96. How many blocks per game are you getting? Two or three blocks a game is not a big number, so don’t put too much pressure
on yourself to HAVE to make blocks. In a game, you could get 30 block attempts (hits against you…this includes shots). Based on 2 blocks per game, that means 7% of all attacks against you will result in a
block (that means out of those 30 block attempts, 28 will be hit around
you). Make it a goal to get 3 blocks a game which correlates to 1 block for every 10 attempts (this would be phenomenal if you accomplished this goal). Continue Reading

Winning at Volleyball without Height

Posted on 11 March 2009 by Chuck Rey

chrissiezartman Winning at Volleyball without Height volleyballDuring the season at the U of MN, Mike Hebert received an email from a club coach of which he passed along to me. The club coach was concerned with devising an offense system for a team with very little height. The club coach was quick to point out that the team had three great liberos. Here is my reply with Mike’s blessing, it also gives some insight of things I learned at the U of MN:

I hope this email will help save some trees and save you some money from all the paper you are using trying to devise an offense. But let’s look at two things first: 1) Defense 2) Height, and then we can discuss offense. Continue Reading
