Indoor Volleyball Essentialsby Charlene Johnson
The essentials taught here are critical to any serious volleyball athlete. This course teaches the skills and techniques I practiced daily as an NCAA All-American, an Olympian and international professional, and then taught my teams as a coach at Nebraska, as a club coach and with the Junior and Youth National Teams with USA Volleyball. The course covers wall setting, defense, footwork, serving, passing and walking progressions.
The videos are recorded inside a gym where I explain and demonstrate the basic fundamentals and proper technique to execute each skill correctly. I also show through a series of progressions how to advance from basic break down to a more practical practice drill. Throughout this course I show proper techniques and daily practice drills that you can do on your own at home, in a gym with someone else, or in a team practice.
