Colorado Juniors Coaching Philosophy

Our guarantee of coach to athlete ratio of 1:6 has been instrumental in player development over the years. The more feedback and skill repetition, the better!

Learn More

Skill acquisition is taught through:

  • demonstration
  • practice
  • demonstration again with key concepts pointed out
  • practice
  • repeat one key at a time

FEEDBACK is the most important variable in the learning process -- we will:

  • provide goals
  • provide targets
  • compete and provide rewards
  • precision praise or precision criticism stating specifics so it can be repeated

Athletes can best be developed if they:

  • pursue individual excellence and not "compare themselves"
  • don't feel judged -- see instruction as assessing their game
  • overcome the fear of making mistakes
  • motivation should not be to "please"
  • do things you have never done before

Major Concepts taught by position

Setters: footwork, tempo setting, net relativity, contact position, finger position, hand placement, decision making, transition, directing

Hitters: timing, arm swing, body placement, footwork, line shots, tempo shots, block reading, transition, acceleration

Blockers: movement, tempo sets, taking line vs cross court, footwork, read vs option, eye sequencing, hitter reads, loading, penetration

Defense/Passing: posture, preparation, covering, recovery, lateral movement, reading hitters

Our coaches WANT to coach and WANT to assist athletes in development -- this is evident in their enthusiasm and demonstrations! a great opportunity for each athlete to develop team and individual skills.

Some camps/clinics have restrictions based upon age and/or experience level -- this is so each athlete can maximize their experience -- NOT to "one up" on anyone else -- please adhere to these restrictions -- if anyone is misplaced, we will move them to the appropriate group/level to assist them and their fellow athletes in that particular session.
