I'm relatively new to v-ball; I just finished playing for a
season with the (Chelmsford) HP Volleyball League. I've
also played several times at the open play nights at the
Concord (MA) Academy -- where I broke my finger last time
I went a month ago!!
Anyway, I love playing this game but I really need to develop
*all* my basic skills: serving, passing, setting (the ball - not
bones!), etc, et cetera!
What's a good way to do this? I'd like to get professional
coaching somewhere. Also, a video instruction tape would be
BTW, I bought a copy of Volleyball Monthly last week to look
for this kind of stuff but it was a big disappointment. It
was heavily spectator-oriented -- teams, standings, personalities,
relatively little focus on playing. Is there a more playing-
oriented publication out there? Also, because Volleyball Monthly
had such a spectator focus, it seemed to be aimed at young people,
since those are the ones who have NCAA/Olympic/TV hopes. To read
the magazine you'd think nobody over about 25 plays the game,
but I'm 40 and many (most?) people I've played with this year
are over 30.
Anyway, thanks for any comments or advice.
