The Home Training Program Series™ (HTPS™) was created by The Art of Coaching Volleyball and BYOP® Founder Ruth N. Nelson, who has amassed over 40 years of volleyball experience and expertise at all levels. Ruth is a former USA Team player, teacher and coach at the collegiate, national, and professional levels. For the past 17 years, Ruth has focused on and created the most innovative program for ages 10 and under that engages parents alongside their children in training (Bring Your Own Parent Program – BYOP®).

Ruth has created this unique Home Training Program Series™ for elementary students, youth players, parents, teachers and coaches that may be practiced not only at home with a parent, sibling or friend, but also before or after your regular team practice.

This program addresses two major areas: the first is the Physical Elements of Performance, which includes jump rope routines, hand-eye coordination using tennis balls, ace player card exercises, and the basic enhanced movement patterns used in volleyball. The second is the Fundamental Skills of Volleyball, which includes the Ace Player Card exercises, self and partner tossing for passing and setting, tossing for serving and footwork and arm swing for attacking.

This program is set up in 4 different sections:

    1 | Physical Elements of Performance – Level 1 (7 & Under)
    2 | Physical Elements of Performance – Level 2 (8 & Up)
    3 | Fundamental Skills of Volleyball – Level 1 (7 & Under)
    4 | Fundamental Skills of Volleyball – Level 2 (8 & Up)

Users are able to choose which level they wish to take and have the ability to move from video to video in whichever order they wish. If you begin at Level 1 and find it too easy, you can easily jump to Level 2 and vice-versa. After each video there is a short 3 question quiz, be sure to get all 3 questions right before moving onto the next video!

  5. Home Training Program

    This program by Ruth Nelson was so great not only as a refresher on the basic fundamentals of volleyball but the progressions that work best for training the youth. The drills are exciting and engaging for this age group, while also providing parents and players a better visual understanding than any clinic. One of my favorite things about this course is the progressions give players a chance to really gain the skills and techniques necessary to advance. The key words and phrases serve as an easy and constant reminder of the important techniques required of each skill. This program makes teaching volleyball to the youth fun, engaging and productive.
