Cover: handbook for competitive volleyball
Handbook for Competitive Volleyball
with Athanasios Papageorgiou, a successful coach in the German men's top league ;

and Willy Spitzley

The primary focus of this book is to develop an all-around/universal athlete into a specialised athlete. This progression is discussed with references to setting, outside hitting, middle hitting, back-row hitting, serving, outside blocking, middle blocking, defence, coverage, and service reception and will be connected to related service reception, offensive, and defensive formations. Another major focus is to design and practise match systems. Strategies and counter-strategies in serving, service reception, offence, and defence will be dealt with. Special aspects of individual, group, and team tactics will be discussed. In addition, the authors look at the development of counter-strategies to an opposition's match plan and give examples of ways to cover a hitter in certain offensive formations. Furthermore, we will deal with solid ways of developing the most efficient and effective game system that would bring out the strengths of a team, including the use of the libero. The problem faced is that all of these issues are not completely or sufficiently covered in the existing literature. This gap is filled with this book.

Coaching Volleyball Technical and Tactical Skills
Written in conjunction with renowned collegiate volleyball coach Cecile Reynaud, Coaching Volleyball Technical and Tactical Skills helps coaches teach players essential volleyball skills and transfer the knowledge and ability they gain in practice to matches.

Supplemented by more than 115 photos, this book provides in-depth discussions and coaching cues on the basic and intermediate technical skills of volleyball, both offensive and defensive, and shows how to detect and correct errors in players' performance.with Cecile Reynaud, former Florida State University Head Volleyball Coach

The book goes a step further than other texts by incorporating the tactical skills of the game, the situational in-game decisions that often affect the outcomes of matches. Some of these tactical skills include aggressive serving, hitting off the block, determining blocking strategies, and defending against quick attacks.

To cultivate tactical skills, you will learn how to employ the tactical triangle, an approach that teaches players how to read a situation, acquire the knowledge they need to make a tactical decision, and apply decision-making skills to the problem. By incorporating game-like situations into your daily practices, you will help players transfer the technical skills they've honed in practice to tactical situations during matches.

Well before the first match is played, Coaching Volleyball Technical and Tactical Skills shows you how to establish practice and match routines and address such issues as communicating with players and parents, scouting opponents, and motivating players. To assist with this preparation, the book covers planning at several levels and includes a sample season plan and eight sample practice plans that incorporate small-sided games to help keep you organized.

Through Coaching Volleyball Technical and Tactical Skills, infused with Coach Reynaud's 26-plus years of collegiate coaching experience, you will improve your performance as a teacher and tactician of the game of volleyball.
