Sessions begin with a warm up, and then transition to individual skills. The fundamentals of serving, passing, and volleying are practiced for 20 minutes with the coach providing constant feedback to the athlete. The appropriate techniques will be taught, and attention will be paid to the details.
For the remaining time, the decision of what we practice is totally up to the athlete! Participants can practice specific things that they would like to improve on or they can follow a practice plan designed by the coach. Any aspect of the game of volleyball can be practiced.
