My daughter is in 8th grade and has made the team this?

My daughter is in 8th grade and has made the team this year as she did last. We have a new coach this year who doesn't allow the girls to use their knee pads. What is the purpose of this?   Does it help at all with development of the sport?  It seems sadistic to me and I can't understand how causing the girls pain will help them to "dig" a ball or encourage them to dive for anything. Thank you

Its been a long time i am coaching the girls volleyball?

Its been a long time i am coaching the girls volleyball team in our school, for the past 10 years i am happy teaching the grassroot of the fundamentals of the game, but after 10 years I am beginning to feel this so called BURN OUT, and I am becoming inpatient to my players, sometimes i used to shout on them if they cannot perform the skills, they cannot execute the system of play, its always teaching them again and again the same technique that they cannot follow. I already gave several championships to the schools and some of my players are now playing in the higher league and the parents are thankful for the values and discipline i imparted to their children. Still, I am not contented or satisfy with my achievements, why do i feel this?

Do you have any drills for sitting volleyball?

My focus is on sitting volleyball and I either have to create my own drills or adapt standing drill which requires lots of trawling, research and innovation. If there are any other coaches who have developed sitting volleyball drills I should very much like to access them and I'm willing to share mine too.

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

Debbie Cross Australia

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.

I can't get enough of the Sportplan, It has given me back the enthusiasm i was starting to lose. My girls are so keen and are ready at 14 to take the next up in their game. Sportplan will help no end.
