Every coach will receive the USYVL’s Curriculum Handbook. Written by some of the best volleyball coaches in the world, this handbook provides step-by-step instruction for each skill taught throughout the entire season. Every fundamental of volleyball is thoroughly explained, with pictures and diagrams to augment the text. All practices for the eight-week league are organized in down-to-the-minute format. The combination of hands-on training, and the training in the handbook, will allow a person without any volleyball experience to coach a volleyball team.
