One of the key inspirations behind the Volleyball Coaching Wizards project is Julio Velasco. By any measure, Julio Velasco is one of the best, most innovative, most important volleyball coaches in history. Every time you watch volleyball, the game that you see is (partly) his product. His influence on the game is profound.
But the reason he is such an inspiration for the project, is that while most volleyball people know his name and know that he is one of the most famous coaches in the world, outside the Italian / Spanish speaking world they have no idea about his actual teachings or philosophies or methodologies; the things that made his influence so profound. The same applies to many other great, unknown volleyball coaches.
The goal of the Volleyball Coaching Wizards project is to make that knowledge more widely known and understood.
As an example, below are two clips from presentations Velasco made that have been subtitled into English. Just as a taste. They are great.
These are so good! He’s wise and hilatious! Can we start a project to fined these videos and someone to translate them into English?
