An important volleyball coaching cue for learning is “Be Engaged”. This verbal cues can be used: when teaching players how to learn faster, participate in practice more, and finally how to make their high school team with a new and different coach.
At a club clinic in the Bay Area a number of club players were worried about making their high school teams. High school tryouts often had 80 players per age group competing for 24 spots on each squad including freshman, JV and varsity. Keep in mind most of the 80 girls play club. Being coachable, likeable and engaged is something younger players forget to focus on at this age level during the tryouts and this is a good verbal cue to help them with this.
