with Tom Keating, former Dubuque Wahlert HS Head Coach, 11x state champions, 7x Iowa coach of the year and 2003 National coach of the year.
Listen to Tom Keating explain the behind the scenes work it takes to start building or to re-energize your volleyball program.
Coach Keating takes you step-by-step through the major attributes of running a successful program. He starts off with explaining the importance of planning and reveals important considerations you may not think about when your focus is on-court coaching. Keating walks you through the process of putting together a handbook that introduces the program and details your philosophy of coaching and what it takes to earn playing time - a valuable tool that can help keep parents, players and coaches on the same page.
You will see how to make all of your goals Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time related.
Keating describes how taking the time to build relationships with both the players and their parents can help everyone understand what they do and do not have control over, which will help all involved better understand their roles with the team.
Finally you will learn how evaluations during and after the season can help the program continuously improve and get stronger by listening to others and fixing what may not have worked.
This video is a must watch for all new coaches and for experienced coaches looking to develop a powerhouse program. 2012.
