Coaching Tip Of The Week #14

“The difference is a tenth of a second”

When the setter is a little bit unsure, he lets the ball drop a tiny bit lower and keeps it in the hand for a little bit longer.  Maybe a tenth of a second.

When the receiver is a little bit unsure, he steps back half a step to give himself more time.  Maybe a tenth of a second extra.

When the spiker is a little bit unsure, he lets the ball drop fly a bit further to give himself more time to see the block.  Maybe a tenth of a second.

When the blocker is a bit unsure, he waits a little longer to see the set leave the setter’s hands to make the correct decision.  Maybe a tenth of a second.

Players who are confident in themselves and trust their eyes, their decisions and their movements and don’t have to wait that extra tenth of a second.

The difference between a confident player playing well and a good player lacking confidence is roughly a tenth of a second.
