    identified the left brain right brain components of training versus competing Practice is mostly a left brain activity with the focus on certain postures base positions precise routes and taught verbal responses Competition however is a right brain activity At peak performance there is no time space or judgment The test of coaching is to prepare a team in a left brain environment to perform in a right brain activity A small group exercise allowed participants to examine the personal characteristics that shape their coaching behavior and impact their relationships with their female athletes Coaches discussed their strengths weaknesses pet peeves and common reactions to stressful situations Left Brain vs Right Brain Activities Next I led a discussion on the impacts of gender programming in practice planning and team building Female teams are more comfortable with connecting activities and less comfortable with competitive activities the opposite is true for male teams Consequently across sports and age groups female teams spend more of their practice time in single contact repetitive drills left brain while male teams engage early and often in competitive game like sequences right brain One result is that female athletes often have better technique but less killer instinct than males with the same training and experience The stress of competition is familiar territory for male athletes but less so for female athletes The challenge for coaches is to find the balance in training between activities that are comfortable for their teams but only reinforce existing predilections and those that make their teams edgy but improve their weaknesses in competition Next Peppler demonstrated coaching feedback directed at improving and evaluating the competitive performance of a player as well as the team around her Peppler s feedback was emotionless and specific She pointed out that anger and frustration signal that a coach is helpless to solve the problem facing a team and challenged the coaches to evaluate when they revert to these emotions in both matches and practices These emotions she asserted are the result of a lack of clarity she showed the coaches how to script the competitive response they want from their team and how to include that training in their practices The Blanchard Model of Leadership Styles On the final morning the focus turned to issues of leadership management style and relationship development Peppler identified the Blanchard model for characterizing leadership styles directive versus supportive and gave examples of the styles in coaching behavior She showed the coaches how to evaluate their styles and gave examples of when each style is most effective Next participants did an individual exercise to assess their leadership skills The purpose was to provide them with a written inventory of their attention to vision planning organization communication personal improvement succession preparation and a long term exit strategy I concluded the seminar with a discussion of leadership in a gender context identifying general differences in the reactions of females and males to authority Females more comfortable with flatter and more egalitarian systems often

  • Volleyball Nutrition Guide from the US Olympic Committee – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    the US Olympic Committee I ve searched far and wide for good nutrition information for athletes During my coaching days of club volleyball I compiled information and created a volleyball nutrition guide as reader friendly as possible for 16 year olds To my surprise when I reached the collegiate ranks coaches are often left to fend for themselves for good nutrition information for their teams I used much of the information I gathered from the club days as fundamental nutrition somewhat stays the same modified it and have learned learned pictures speak a thousand words So my nutrition guides have more pictures and less words now Recently I came across the USOC Nutrition page Resources and Fact Sheets that is a series of PDFs on specific nutrition information It contains a good balance of pictures charts and words I downloaded all the PDFs and combine them into one document I have made it available for you here USOC Nutrition Guide There is also a great series of youtube videos with host Summer Sanders that includes the Senior USOC Sports Dietitian Nanna Meyer among others Share this Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Click to share on Facebook
