With so much time focused on player selection and recruiting, volleyball coaches can lose sight of the one characteristic shared by every successful program: the ability of the staff to make players better from one season to the next. Coaches that develop an innovative and progressive training program for their players on the mental and physical parts of the game consistently achieve higher levels of success. Working with two scientists, Dr. Voight and Dr. McNitt-Gray, who have done extensive research on the sport of volleyball, USC Head Coach, Mick Haley, shares the step-by-step training cycles that deliver continuous improvement.
