Spring Volleyball 2013 Coming Up and I'm Worried

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

My job as a coach is to come up with practices that not only enhance your playing capabilities but get you fit as well. We have been on hiatus since December 8th so I haven't had interaction with the players so not sure what I'm going to do for this Saturday's practice. I have written out the workout but I don't know who is going to show up. I don't know if I have enough cardio or strength training for their overall conditioning. My trouble in coming up with effective workouts is that I have all levels volleyball players and now I have a teenage boy to coach from scratch. I have a few girls that are in elementary so I have to make sure there is some VB 101 for them and the older women who have never played before. I also have very skilled girls that are fit so I have to make sure they aren't bored.

Because I play also I want these workouts to benefit me as well because if I can't keep up then how can I expect that of others? Because I'm a bit gordita I tend to believe that it slows me down until I see pictures of course and then I realize I'm a big girl who plays really well.

Anyway, I lost my train of thought and can't remember where I was going with this other than to express yet another insecurity. What is wrong with me? The players and non-players are excited about this Saturday's practice so that should be a good motivator. There is nothing better than reading through text that everyone is sore the next day so maybe my own expectation to deliver a good workout is scaring me.
