Product description

This book helps you get the coaching secrets of a volleyball legend. Anyone wishing to be a successful volleyball coach needs to know more than just how to teach the basic skills and implement a plan. In such a fast-paced game, not only do you need to outperform your opponent, but you must out think him as well. Volleyball Hall of Fame coach Mike Hebert spent years learning the secrets to success and among the most important is that you should never stop learning. In Thinking Volleyball, he goes beyond the development of motor skills to provide a unique cerebral look at how athletes learn. Hebert also introduces the strategies behind his reading defence approach, which will give a team an advantage against any opponent. Regardless of how talented players are, a positive environment that includes a solid mutual trust among everyone involved with the programme is a vital component for any coaching programme both on and off the court.
