with Dan Clotfelter, Emory & Henry College Head Coach;

Everyone wants players who are flexible in the way they attack and defend. Coaches want players that can spot weaknesses in opponents and adjust their own play to take advantage of those weaknesses. In addition, coaches want players that constantly read through the net and make adjustments based on the visual cues they see.
If you feel like your team's volleyball IQ is not where it should be, Emory & Henry College Head Coach Dan Clotfelter examines both mental and physical volleyball IQ tools that every player should have in their toolbox and give coaches drills and practice techniques to develop these tools.
Starting with simple individual skill drills, progressing to small sided drills and finally 6v6 drills, this presentation will give you many great ideas to take back to your next practice. Each drill doesn't focus on specific fundamentals, but instead helps your team to learn how to play the game more effectively.
Of course fundamental skills are important, but without the knowledge of how to play the game your volleyball player is woefully incomplete. This video focuses on how to teach players of all ages how to better play the game of volleyball by increasing their Volleyball IQ.
Volleyball IQ is the ability to think strategically and tactically while automatically executing skills and movement at a high level. If you are looking to help your team win more matches, look to this video to increase your squad's Volleyball IQ.
