I'm sure, you've come to my site to learn how to improve your volleyball skills, take your game to the next level and possibly reach a goal or two, am I right?
Volleyball players come to this site because they want to make a varsity or JV school team or a club or collegiate team.
The more motivated and disciplined you are, the more you'll learn and with practice, the better you'll get.
Players with goals, I love that!
I've helped a lot of players reach their goals and I'm sure I can help you too.
Drills drills drills, there's a song out there with sound alike words I know!
Drills are the secret or not-so-secret ingredient to making practices and players better.
The opportunity to do 1000 reps of a skill at every opportunity possible, is what it takes to make your varsity team, your club team, your collegiate team.
The drills we do, are usually done at a faster pace so you can get more touches and repetitions on the ball.
Performing many repetitions of a skill in a short amount of time, if taught correctly, will you improve your volleyball playing at a faster rate.
When we teach skills, we talk less so you can do more.
That's what drills are all about, progress and improvement. The first time might not feel or look so good. But each time after that, as long as you can see you are making progress you can feel the improvement, then you're on the right road.
Yep, that's right, people, I hashtag when I talk.
Frequently updated, I include videos of drills from my favorite coaches with explanations of how I run my versions of the same drill.
Get ahead of the game, come back often to find out how super successful collegiate coaches run their drills and listen in as they talk about what makes their players successful.
