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!
Skill acquisition is taught through:
- demonstration again with key concepts pointed out
- 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.
