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.
Subbing is the process of bench players and court players swapping places to maximize the team's efficiency. Often, this means a front row player will be replaced by a back row player through a substitution when that player travels to the back row to pass.
Rules regulating the subbing process:
- If a bench player subs in for another player, that is the only player they can sub in for for the remainder of the game.
- A club coach gets 12 subs per game, meaning a bench player can replace a court player.
- The libero can go in for any of the back row players without it counting as a sub, but can only make one sub per point.
