I’m Coach Anderson. I’m just another coach out of the millions of volleyball coaches. I love the sport of volleyball and consider myself lucky to be so heavily involved in the sport.
I haven’t won a national championship, I haven’t played volleyball overseas and I don’t even coach college volleyball. What I have done is spend a considerable amount of time and money learning how to be the best coach I can be.
One day, about 7 years ago, I was playing volleyball and saw a young talented athlete working on his hitting skills. Along side him was one of the “top” coaches in the area we’ll call him Coach X. Coach X was trying to help this extremely talented athlete to hit better, but didn’t seem to be able to help. I said to myself…”If I coached that young volleyball player, he would be amazing by now!” Arrogant yes, did I know much about coaching at that time? No!
What did I know? I knew how to play volleyball. That very next week I went looking for coaching jobs. What I realized after my first year of assistant coaching was that I had two very important coaching attributes. I had the ability to connect with people, both players and coaches and secondly I knew exactly how I performed every skill.
My Next Move
I was ready to be a head coach or at least wanted to be one. I went in search for volleyball information. I scoured the web and read all the books I could. I found tons of websites for volleyball, but most if not all of them were spam or only trying to sell a product. I have been waiting for years for someone to produce a website to cover the huge area of coaching volleyball, but to no avail. So I started my own.
Why Online Volleyball Coach?
With my blog I plan to be as open and thorough as I possibly can be.
I don’t consider myself the best coach in the world and you may not agree with what I post, and that’s okay. But in order to improve coaches and players in the USA we need all coaches to have access to the same information and then we can improve from there.
