Frustration On the New Ways Volleyball Spiking Technique is Taught in Name of Shoulder Injury Prevention
Hi, I’m Andor Gyulai – Owner of Volleyball1on1.com, I created this video to express some frustrations I have in the new ways volleyball spiking is being taught by people who have little experience playing the game, especially beach volleyball as well as minimal experience coaching youth successfully. I made this video to bring some new points to the conversation and hopefully give some confidence to experience coaches who are questioning what they are teaching and if it is correct in their coaching philosophies.
