University of Michigan Volleyball Coach Mark Rosen looks at the bigger picture goals to plan seasonal training. The plan is to work backwards: Where does the team need to be when they start competing in conference? Where does the team need to be when we enter the NCAA tournament? How do we build ourselves to be successful? Preparing for future goals requires the team to work on particular skills, plays and strategies that they will see during big-stakes matches. Rosen claims that having faith in the process and allowing players to make mistakes during the learning period results in long-term growth and greatness.
