This drill offers a rare chance for caoches to witness one of the greatest coaches in the world coach youth players. Gary Sato is head coach for Japan Men’s Volleyball, on top of this he is Olympic Gold and Bronze Medal Coach. In this series of instructional videos Gary is coaching his daughters club volleyball team.
The videos contain a great youth volleyball drill that Gary uses successfully to build skill and warm up the players successfully. The drill is on the net which is key for transfer (ability for players to learn what is taught) and gets the kids playing volleyball, thus making it more fun.
Some key features of what we like about this drill. It keeps the players engaged. The players are moving allot. The players are building multiple skills including serving, passing and setting. The players are warming up while doing this drill so you do not need a separate warm up.
