“The Volleyball Coaching Bible, Volume II, is an absolute must-read for volleyball coaches at all levels, and a wonderful addition to the available current volleyball texts. With the guidance of Cecile Reynaud, one of the most respected and experienced coaches of all time, this comprehensive book provides foundational concepts and expert advice that will surely help any coach become an even better coach.”
Doug Beal-- Chief Executive Officer USA Volleyball
“As one of Cecile’s former players, I benefited from her innate ability to get the best out of me and my teammates, and she’s done the same with the coaches who have contributed to this outstanding resource. I recommend this book to any volleyball coach who is serious about bringing the best game to the court.”

One excellent characteristic of both Volleyball Coaching Bibles is that the authors are all experienced and credentialed practitioners in the subject that they are speaking to. Chris Catanach, Randy Dagostino, Charlie Sullivan, Shelton Collier, Bill Neville, Salima Rockwell, et. al. are all veteran coaches and administrators well experienced in their respective topic areas.
The problem that I had, and the only reason that I did not give the book a five star rating , it that even though the topics are well chosen, each topic constitute wells of significant depth, some are deeper than others but each topic is capable of generating a book by itself. It is very difficult to adequately discuss and inform the audience on every nuance and subtlety associated with every topic. For example, there are already books written on mindsets and on deliberate practices, a short chapter does not do justice to the depth and breadth of some topics. In a manner of speaking, the authors were attempting to facilitate the reader in their task to drink from a fire hydrant: it was an impossibility.
Yet, for as impossible a task as the authors were given, the book does introduce the topic to the reader. I hope that the reader is motivated to continue their education beyond this important but incomplete compendium of chapters, to further their coaching education by researching and reading further about some of these topics.
In the end, this is a valuable and well intended tome of great amount of coaching knowledge.
A Goodreads First Reads book received.
I began reading this book with absolute zero knowledge about the sport. However, The Volleyball Coaching Bible was quick to make an impression on me, especially since the pages are filled with so much detail and pratical information from knowledgeable coaches of the AVCA, from team formation to statistics. Though in general the book is great, it has one major mistake: this should be made into a specific book of volleyball tactics, not short chapters on different subjects since I thought it was not definite enough, personally.
