I played high school volleyball for one of these authors, so I grew up playing all of the drills and games in this book. I am now a college coach myself & I STILL use this book as a reference guide when I go to plan out a practice. Your athletes will love the different games included in the book that put a different spin on the regular game of volleyball.

If you buy ONE book on how to coach volleyball, make it this one. Carl McGown is the "guru" of volleyball and if you read this book, implement what it says, your team will be better RIGHT NOW!
A book which goes beyond the x and o's to provide the coach with the correct skills and attitudes necessary to compete at a high level.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book, very, very volleyball specific. It is used by USA Volleyball with their CAP I (Coaches Accreditation Program Level 1) Junior Olympic program as the main text for that level of coaching. It is not a drill specific book, although there are many drills between the covers. It will definitely take you to the next level and still be valuable for many years to come. It is just one of many great books out there to help you both become a better coach and to help you teach the game more effectively.

Format: Paperback
As the subtitle "Building a Winning Team" implies, the book touches on the various aspects required to building a team. The authors do an admirable job of providing a wealth of information across a broad spectrum of topics. If you're interested in a general guide with the basics this is the book for you.

I was able to attend BYU, Provo when Carl McGown was head coach of the men's team. This book is great for coaching and providing insight from High school to college level teams. I would recommend to any coach.
