Why Is The Teams “Collective Purpose” Important?
Winning in volleyball involves doing ordinary things extraordinary well. At Volleyball1on1, a “Collective Purpose” guides a team, which we call “What Great Looks Like!” ® – The Volleyball1on1 “Playing Standard” and “Winning Team Culture”. Beyond the team “Collective Purpose”, we each have “Our Share To Do” as an individual player by position towards the collective purpose.
“To be competitive you don’t have to do extraordinary things. You simply have to do ordinary things extraordinarily well.” – John Wooden
Volleyball1on1 Unique Proprietary Coaching Tool: “Do Your Share” ™
One of the biggest challenges of a successful team is every member knowing and doing their individual share successfully for the team. Most players and teams do not know their “Individual Purpose” toward the teams “Collective Purpose”. This results in players focusing on doing too much or the wrong things. With the tool “Do Your Share” ™ each player is taught with our Superior Coaching Systems ® their individual positions to effectively “Do Your Share” ™.
It is critical for each player to understand their role, commit, and be accountable to “Do Their Share”. When each team member does ordinary things extraordinarily well the team works synergistically in rhythm toward the teams “Collective Purpose” of “What Great Looks Like!” ®. Each positions role and responsibility is clearly defined and reviewed often by the coaching staff.
For example, in our coaching systems “Do Your Share” ™ a libero position is defined as:
- Pass The Ball High Off The Net And In The Middle The Tougher The Serve. Take More Court on Serve Receive.
- Serve Receive General. Focus on Responsibilities, Talking, and Controllable Parts of Serve Receive.
- Attempt to pass all “Free Balls” so the other players are free to only attack.
- Relentless Pursuit Defense Team Example. Dig Balls Better Than Anyone on The Court.
- Game Plan Defense General. Align the Team Defense Based Upon the Opponents Offense.
- Team Energy Spark-plug. Bring Massive Amounts of Energy.
- Set hittable Balls in Transition.
- Serve in And Tough.
- Help the Hitters on Offense. As A Non-Hitter They Have the Best View of The Opponents Defense.
