As a coach, navigating team parents who are new to the club system or volleyball in general can sometimes be challenging and time consuming. That's why it's important to offer resources to help educate parents so they have a basic understanding of the game, how the club system works, competition and tournament protocol, and basic skills and strategies. Watch as Brennan Dean, Club Director at Wave Volleyball Club, provides a thorough introduction to the sport to help ease parents into the system so you can keep your focus on your team's success.
Each match is best two of three games to 25 points. In the scenario when each team wins one game, a tiebreaker is needed with a third game to 15 points. The third game requires a rethinking of game strategy, and below are three common questions coaches must ask themselves when setting up for the third game.
1 | What rotation do you want to start with? You generally want to put your best hitter in the front left position so they have the most rotational opportunities to attack.
2 | What's the environment or venue? If the competition venue is 70 courts long, if you choose the wrong side to receive from it may be hard for passers to trace the serve through so many nets.
3 | Should you choose serve or side? Again, this depends on your team. Most coaches will likely choose to serve first, but some teams who are confident in siding out may choose serve receive.
