If you're looking for books about coaching volleyball, what you really should be reading is The Bench Sitter. It's a book written from a player's perspective of what impact coaches can have on those who are on their team and what mistakes are commonly made by those coaches. Coming from a former volleyball player myself, go check it out, you won't regret it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

If you are serious about coaching volleyball, regardless of the level, then this is ONE of, if not THE, first book you should buy. From why you are coaching, to how and why you use drills, and how to make them work for you and your players, all the information you need is right here. If you only come away with Ball,Setter,Ball,Hitter, you will have gotten more than your money's worth. It's also the background text for one of the best coaching clinics available.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
