In business the need to innovate is not only critical for success, but survival. Coaching volleyball is similar to business yet many high school, club programs and camp providers don’t understand this critical fact. The result is they begin a downward spiral of losing or worse yet, creating a culture where kids do not want to participate in a sport with astounding national growth and popularity. This post shares my thoughts on Bruce Lee’s advice on the subject, plus points out areas where you may want to consider innovating!
“Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and add what is specifically your own.” ― Bruce Lee
“Adapt What Is Useful!” As of today, 12/5/17, Volleyball1on1 has filmed over 3000 videos with the best players and coaches in the world. The Volleyball1on1 Coaching Curriculum adapts the most powerful coaching ideas into an easy to use format specifically tailored for high school and club programs.
“Reject What Is Useless!” As a coach when reviewing new ideas: “More is not more!” Because as a teacher, parent, and coach, often your most precious resource is time. Who has the time to go through 1,000’s of articles, videos and more to find only a few coaching nuggets.
“Our Volleyball1on1 Camp Content and Volleyball1on1 Coaching Manuals includes only that which can massively and quickly impact your team results!” – Andor Gyulai (Owner – Volleyball1on1.com)
“And Add What is Specifically Your Own!” The Volleyball1on1 Curriculum includes unique specific content that only we teach! This includes:
1 – “What Great Looks Like!” (™)
Volleyball1on1 Is the only summer camp which offers a scientific proven winning formula top-to-bottom for your high school’s success on and off the volleyball court!

“What Great Looks Like!” (™) is based upon the 60-30-10 Rule (by Richard J Hackman’s) and what this means is during camp week we establish and launch how your program looks, plays, behaves and coaches. All you need to do is continue to steer the ship towards your dream season results!

2 – We Implement the Richard J. Hackman 60-30-10 Rule on Team Effectiveness
Richard Hackman, a former Harvard psychology professor and the author of 10 books on group dynamics, devised what is known as the 60-30-10 rule, which focuses on how leaders can most effectively manage their teams. The crux of the rule is that 60% of the variation in team effectiveness is attributable to the design of the team or culture, 30% to the way the team is launched, and 10% to coaching or management once the team is underway.
In implementing Hackman’s rule, we help foster your team culture using our proven systems and launch your culture and season during the camp week. Then we continue to support you over the course of the season to address the inevitable challenges that arise.

8 – Instruction on New Serving Technique
Japanese Jump Float Slide Serve is one of the most effective serves in women’s volleyball. The serve is incredibly consistent due to the very low consistent toss plus the serve can be serve with as much power as a regular jump float serve. The serve also offers the opportunity for a far more deceptive “Change up,” short serve than most traditional jump float serves. Volleyball1on1 is unique being the only volleyball camp organization to effectively incorporate the coaching of this serving technique in all camps.
9 – Volleyball1on1.com Founder, Andor Gyulai’s Back-row Wing-Up Short Defense System
A new defense pattern has not been introduced to volleyball in over 15 years. The current defense systems are: Perimeter, Perimeter Wing-Up, Setter -, 6 Man-Up, and Rotation Defense. Andor Gyulai’s “Backrow Wing-Up Short Defense,” is unique as it helps stop teams that tip allot while still having your pin hitters ready to attack in transition. Volleyball1on1 is unique being the only volleyball camp organization to teach this technique which is very useful at the lower to mid-high school level. (So for 70-80% of high school teams)
