Terry Liskevych of USA Volleyball talks about adapting a program around your dominant players, not the other way around.
Some coaches are stubborn about their systems and try to force players to fit into the system. Instead, Liskevych advocates for assessing the group of players you have each year and re-adjusting your plays, strategy and game-plan based on team chemistry, skill sets and athleticism.
For instance, a quick offense is only possible with a savvy and fast setter. If you have a setter with good placement but who does not have a high volleyball IQ, a slower offense may be the better option.
