So I started Volleyball1on1.com to be the ultimate volleyball resource and I am proud to say we offer an incredible library of over 17 full volleyball practice plans and growing at one low cost. On top of this with the addition of Volleyball Coaching Nightmares we also reveal and address many off the most common mistakes / challenges high school and youth club coaches face.
Yet as I connect with my 2015 personal mission statement;
“Life is about learning and taking those lessons to become a better person. Being an Eternal Student who strives for KAIZEN”
Kaizen means constant never-ending improvement!
as well as review my goals for 2015, and the knowledge gained from some recent clinics in South Africa I realized some of the incredible new insights I have been blessed to learn I have not always shared with you or made as available as I can. So over the next few weeks I will be revealing a youth coaching curriculum based upon the latest science in learning, tested coaching principals plus insights from the most successful players and coaches in volleyball.
When I look back at my coaching background I was blessed by experience to have fallen into a situation where I have met for volleyball coaching the “10,000-Hour Rule” in my very early 20’s. This while winning a NCAA championship and playing for two of the most well-known coaches in volleyball. But this paled in comparison to what my Volleyball1on1.com platform has allowed me to witness.
So I look forward to sharing this with you over the next few weeks and months. In the meantime some of my favorite volleyball practice planning resources! The coaches include some of the greatest coaches in volleyball today. All follow a similar practice design philosophy and coaching principals.
