VCP TEACHER'S TRAINING COURSE: Training Materials by Dr. Christian "Kiki" Kroger (Youth Development)

Volleyball training includes everything that coaches do with their teams. Only well organized and complex Volleyball training is truly effective for improving the performance of individuals and team Volleyball. Through training, players undergo biological, psychological and social adaptations which prepare them for the workload and performance required in a Volleyball match or tournament.

The team performance means the actual behavior of a team or an individual in a match (quantity & quality). Performance plays a multiple role in training and coaches should use it skillfully because it creates the strongest training stimuli for motivation. Players and team performance also serve to show both coach and players indications about how close or far they are from the goal and what exercises and tasks must be stressed in future training to reach that goal by a certain time.

The Essential Volleyball Drill - Book 2nd Edition

From Hayden Joens & Daniel Dalanhese: "We know there are people out there who are as passionate about the game as we are, and some of them want to share it with others in the form of coaching. This book is for you! This drill book will not go over the rules of the game – for that you can go to, and the technical details on how to perform each skill will not be covered – for that we recommend that you purchase ‘Beach Volleyball’ - a comprehensive book written by Karch Kiraly and Byron Shewman. This book is not designed to repeat what has already been written, but offer an additional resource to what is available currently. We want to know what you think of it and if you believe that a drill book full of beach volleyball specific drills would be a useful tool for your coaching. Email us and let us know at
