Followers of this blog probably already know about the the Volleyball Coaching Wizards project. For those who don’t, it is a joint project between John Forman, from the Coaching Volleyball blog, and myself. The aim is to collect the wisdom of great volleyball coaches from all over the world of volleyball at every level and present it in different ways for coaches who have the passion to learn. We have been experimenting with different ways of presenting that information. Firstly, through the website, you can access the audio of the original interviews (currently around 40). Secondly, we produced a free podcast chatting amongst ourselves about topics that came up during those interviews. Thirdly, we are producing a series (is two a series?) of books arising from the project. There first of those was a collection of interview transcripts, as an introduction to the many that are available. You can read about it here.
The second of the series of books came out this week. It is based on our podcast and we have split it into different themes that we touch on in what turned out to be pretty wide ranging discussions. Some of those themes are:
- Developing a team culture and good team chemistry
- Making non-starters feel like they are important
- Getting the most out of your best players
- Planning highly effective practice sessions
- Ways to get the most from training games
- Maintaining a confident team
- Managing the team in matches
- Being the best coach you can be, now and as you progress
