In November 2018, I gave a presentation to the Polish School of Physical Education (AWF) in Katowice. The topic was “Kluczowe ćwiczenia techniki i taktyki w treningu zespołu profesjonalnego” or perhaps better “Key techniques and tactics exercises in the training of a professional team”. As part of the introduction I gave a description of my philosophy or vision of volleyball. I have edited that introduction, to remove the Polish translation that is audible.
Scroll down for the outline of the presentation. I will upload the practical component, an actual training session, in the next few days.
