    Read The Bench Sitter Instead

    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.

    If you coach volleyball and don't have this book..... shame on you!

    Where was this book fifteen years ago? It sure could have saved me years of trial and error! Add this to your collection and it will become one of those that you are continually going back to.
