Talent is NOT Born, It is GROWN

Talent is Overrated.

The fact is, almost every single great volleyball player was trained to be a great player. They were't born with so called, natural talent

Great volleyball players (and great athletes of other sports) all received the training necessary to excel at their sport.

If you ever watch great athletes real close, you may notice how they all possess the same fundamental mechanics of movement. In volleyball, these are referred to as "playing techniques". 

For example, when observing great setters, you will likely notice they all possess the same setting mechanics. Spinning off one foot as they set, jump setting, finishing steps left to right foot, etc.... these are the common characteristics of great setters and they were all trained to set like this. 

The good news is you can develop these skills also!!

There's no need to be upset because you don't have the natural talent to be great... actually you do have the natural talent... every one of us does!

So, my advice to you is to navigate through this website and learn about how to train for volleyball. There are many training secrets within these pages. Don't take this information lightly... most of your competition doesn't know this stuff.

This is my compilation of 25+ years as a volleyball coach, strength coach, trainer, referee, and pro beach player. If you want to get on the right path to becoming a great volleyball player, you just might have the secrets you need right at your fingertips.
