A philosphy of volleyball

In 2011 I will be coaching the UTS Division 1 men’s indoor volleyball team in the State Volleyball League.

This is a team that has been very successful in the past, but hasn’t won the division for a number of years, despite having a very strong win-loss record. I am also its 5th coach in 5 years.  Trials are currently underway with a number of returning players, plus a number of new players looking to be part of the team.  I will be making selections in the next week.

One of the first things I have done to ensure the players are clear about my expectations is to share my philosophy of volleyball with them.  While I have said these things many times already, I felt it would be useful to also have this written down.

If we can deliver these things as a team then we ought to do well.
