  1. Enjoyable


    Another very good training with a lot of good information well shared

  2. Thorough...


    I thought the information shared was pertinent…well designed…and well presented. Based on a staff of one (me) the stats may be a little hard to pull. That said ..the message from both coaches to pull a few bits of information that will have the most impact is great advice.

  6. Very solid information


    Very solid information overall in theories and concepts.

  7. A complete guide for trainers


    Probably the best course I’ve ever had as a volleyball trainer. Especially the parts about statistics lightened the significance of statistics in decoding a game but also creating the appropriate training sessions based on objective metrics. The coaches who presented the course gave clear and thorough explanations. I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the course.

  8. Excellent course


    This is an excellent for coaches who have experience in the game and new coaches as well. I learned a lot and it help put a lot of game concepts and data analysis in a way that makes it easy to implement during practice. Thank you

    Being a new coach for a high school team, this training has given me so much tactical guidance and insight to be able to confidently direct these young athletes to perform at their best. This is exactly the kind of information I needed to know all in one amazing course.

  10. Men's course

  12. Incredible!


    These two instructors, Coach Hanson and Coach Josephson have such great insight into the Men’s game and Volleyball as a whole, their knowledge is invaluable and I would definitely recommend this course to others!

  13. Superb!


    I have coached for more than 25 years. Although I have been successful, taking this course has helped to add depth to concepts and insight to areas that have not been a vast integral part of my coaching. Having had the opportunity to review the importance of statistics and how the use can enhance coaching, I am pleased that I took the course and now have further information to help improve my coaching. Very well explained, organized, and insightful!

  14. Great Information


    What else can there be about volleyball? Well, I sure found out that there is still plenty to learn about this sport. I coach middle school boys and this will definitely help me run practices better and improve my players, as individuals and as a team.
