THIS IS THE BEST VOLLEYBALL SKILLS BOOK I HAVE EVER PURCHASED. IT EXPLAINS EVERY VOLLEYBALL SKILL IN GREAT DETAIL THAT IS EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND IMPLEMENT. THE DRILLS WERE GREAT. IF YOUR ONLY GOING TO BUY ONE VOLLEYBALL SKILL BOOK- THIS IS THE ONE!! I'D HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

Excellent coaching tool. My husband coaches a 13-14 year old girls vb team and this is without a doubt the best book we have found to learn all about volleyball. I check books out from the library to preview them and this is the only one that we felt was worth purchasing.

Everything thing is explained nicely and will improve your game there is one troubling part though. In the warm ups it says to do the exercises that will benifit you in your area of trouble. While some of them are obvious on how they help the others aren't. I'm sure after doing them for a time you will figure it out but it would be nice to have it clearly stated in the book.
Also this book is good for individuals, coachs and teams, but as a single person it takes more work. You're going to want at least on partner most of the time. Some drills require more people so you won't get the full benefit. However it is possible to modify most of the drills to two people. The hardest thing for a single person is probably staying motivated.
On a side note, you'll need more then a volleyball and a net. Some of the other things they use are a medicine ball, jump rope, ladder, something to mark a target like a cone, and tape or chalk. Plus it also helps to have a gym you can use with a net.

Great book for moms, teens, or anyone who wants some information and helpful hints on how to be a better volleyball player. gives step by step drills broken down into categories such as.... serving, movement, spiking, etc. even a novice like me can understand the book and use the information to help a player become a better player.

This book helped our team to a winning season last year and it provides everything needed for victory other than talent. The book covers all the tipes and positions needed for a successful offense. It provides the basic form needed for all hits and gives strategy tips for all stages of the game. It teaches blocking and digging and the finer points of defense. Additionally, it gives all of the rotations for an advanced team. The best thing about the book though is that it provides drills to teach your players all the steps needed. This is the only book you will ever need as a player or a coach.

I'm coaching a 17U girls team and this book has been indispensable. I've used in conjunction with Coaching volleyball for dummies and it has been a great help. Techniques are well illustrated and described. Drills are diagramed and work. The VB for Dummies goes a little more in depth into team 'management' but if I could only buy/read one - this is it.

I was very impressed with how Coach Bonnie Kenny, and Cindy set up an ideal format for players to learn and know the basics of Voleyball success.

This book is similar to John Wooden's Pyramid for Success!

I've found this to be a great learning tool for beginner players. It contains descriptions of skills, rotations, offenses, and defenses. I bought this for my daughter to get another perspective on learning and practicing fundamental skills. You will find that as a player goes through teams and clubs, coaches will have biases and slightly different ideas on how to teach a skill. The rotations and defenses may vary slightly. Even so, learning what is in this book will not be wrong. It will give the player a good basis and will just need to tweak things a little as determined by their current coach.

This book will not make a player better without practice. There are other books with more drills and ideas. If you had to buy a first book, this would not be a bad choice.

The words of another reviewer helped me make my final decision to purchase this book. They said that they had checked out books at the library and this was the only one they decided to purchase. Also it said that the book was for those who did not know much about volleyball to be able to learn and/or coach the basics. I love this book. I did not play competitive volleyball middle school or high school; however, I am the middle school volleyball coach. While reading this book, I applied the techniques to my playing and coaching my daughter. It gave me the confidence that I needed to be a coach who can teach the girls the basics of volleyball and win games. Thank you reviewers for you help.
