Tom Black is arguably one of the top young coaches in the United States and the current head coach of LMU University and a assistant coach to the USA Women’s National Team. Tom worked hand in hand with Karch Kiraly, Ron Larson, Hugh McCutcheon, and Paula Weishoff to develop the ideas behind “Reading the Game Volleyball Coaching Concepts.”
This volleyball practice plan is a D1 NCAA College Women’s Indoor Reading the Game Practice. This practice will help coaches with important concepts and drills related to the topic. Additionally Andor and Tom filmed individual videos in Tom office discussing the topic.
This practice also reveals some exciting game changing concepts on “Split Step Stretch-Shortening Cycle” for blocking and defense. This concept is taken for tennis and will help players move faster when “Reading the game” as well as blocking and playing defense.
