How To Play Volleyball Video Clips Will Improve Your Game

Watch how to play volleyball video
to improve your volleyball skills

I've watched quite a bit of how to play volleyball video clips, first when

I was in college and then continuing on through my professional

volleyball career

When I wasn't watching video to scout a team, I watched them to

improve my individual skills.

Let me tell you what I think happens to me when I'm watching how to

volleyball video clips to get tips that will help me improve my game


If I'm watching another player who passes the ball better

than I do, then I focus only on this player executing the skill or

technique correctly over and over and over again.

I want to memorize that "scene" from the video, taking that "visual"

image with me so I start playing that scene over and over again in my


This may sound a little strange but actually it shouldn't.

Think about it.

We already do the same thing when we go to a movie theatre to watch

a film.

We "take away" certain scenes that really affect us and we play those

scenes repeatedly in our mind. Then later we tell our friends about

those scenes exactly how we remember them.

I do the exact same thing with the scenes in the how to play volleyball

video clips Ive just watched.

So, I start visualizing that volleyball player passing the ball in my mind

even after I've stopped watching the video.

When I go home, when I go to bed, when I'm washing dishes, before

volleyball practice, I will play that video in my head getting myself used

to seeing this player passing the ball correctly in my mind.

Then what I do is I'll add my own soundtrack.

By this, I mean I will start to add to my mental picture the soundtrack

of what I've heard my coach tell me in practice about performing this

volleyball passing skill correctly.

Mentally I match the two together.

In my mind, I will hear my volleyball coach say "step to the ball",

"present my platform", "use my legs to get to the ball", "be stopped

when I pass the ball" "don't pass the ball while running, be stopped".

I keep hearing my volleyball coach's words over and over like a tape

recorder in my mind adding these words to the visual images I have

implanted and memorized in my mind.

I'm actually recreating a new mental movie in my mind. 

I've found that this "soundtrack" is actually pretty easy because when

you aren't performing a volleyball skill correctly in practice, then that is

the moment when your coach starts yelling at you anyway, right?

Since, what they are yelling at the top of their lungs already exists in

my mind because I've heard them repeat it over and over again, I

can just start playing that "audio"tape, over and over.

Then little by little both what I SEE in my mind and what I HEAR in my

head start meshing together forming a new video.

During my free moments and especially before practice or a game, when

I replay this continuously in my mind these two things start coming

together where I've formed a new mental how to play volleyball video of

my own.

When this new how to play volleyball video clip starts playing then after

awhile my body starts to internalize and adopt the same movements.

My body responds to the mental voice I hear and the mental picture I've

been playing.

My body starts doing some of the things that I have been rehearsing

over and over again in my mind. Slowly but surely I see myself in my

new mental volleyball video, replacing that player who is passing the

ball correctly.

I start seeing myself -take the place of that player-and in my mind I see

myself performing the perfect pass correctly over and over again.

Then bit by bit, the aspects of the game that I am playing over and

over, in this case passing the ball correctly, start to become automatic

and I start doing these things physically, not just mentally, but actually

in real life.

That's how I make watching how to play volleyball video clips work for
