Using Technology to Help Teams Score More Points

As we all know, volleyball is a simple game – first to 25, win by two. But how to reach that score before your opponent is the real question. As coaches, we are always trying to motivate our team to score and earn more points while never relying on the opponent to give you anything. With that being said, do you know how many points your team needs to earn to maximize your chance of winning the set? Or do you have a general idea of what you think you need to earn? In our program, we consider the following as ways to earn points for our team: a kill, an ace, and/or a block. We consider giving away points as a hitting error, a service error, a reception error, a setting error, and/or a blocking error.
