Strength & Conditioning for volleyball

s&c workshop

This is an introductory workshop to S&C and is aimed at coaches at all levels. It will help you to understand how to develop players that can jump higher, move faster and hit the ball harder, plus provide practical tips on how you can incorporate S&C into your sessions. You will come away with ideas that you can progress and apply to your own coaching environment.

What will I learn?

During the three hours you will learn:

  • The key skills you need to develop in your players; movement, jumping, landing, hitting
  • The physical attributes of a volleyball player
  • How you develop the physical attributes: competence, capacity, strength, durability
  • Injury prevention vs performance enhancement
  • Preparing players for a session and warm up
  • Key components of a cool down
  • How to incorporate physical preparation into your drills and training sessions

The workshop has been developed with S&C experts working with Volleyball England.
