    1 early in a match then use it as a decoy I would then have your team run 31s in counter attack transition Most middles especially at the junior level will not track their middles in transition I would experiment with the height of the set to the pins but as we learned this season a high outside set was more effective for our team than a faster tempo set to the outside I would also experiment with the backrow attack It is becoming much more prevalent and effective in the Olympic and college game I assume it will trickle down to the junior level as well Much of this will be based on the ability of your personnel Your offense does not have to be complex Minnesota s is not Vary your sets to the outside run a 4 and then a Rip or 32 set on occasion Run the 1 with your middle on occasion to keep the middle blocker honest Run slides with your middles if they are talented enough Run a high back to your right side and occasionally bring her in for a back 2 The girls will have fun with the different options make sure you have an excellent communication system in place and take stats to learn what is most effective for your team The most important element of your offense is keeping the ball in play for your hitters to make wise hitting decisions read my earlier What is IPE post It is important for them to go after it and rip the ball when its a great set versus making a smart hit into the court on a poor out of system set In a 25 point set USC Head Coach Mick Haley discovered that a team achieves 16 points on kills The second leading way for a team to achieve a point is on an opponent error 6 points per set Thus your team needs to keep the ball in play don t give them more points than necessary let your three liberos win the match It is not the height of the players you have but the confidence you instill in them as a coach I highly recommend you never mention anything about their lack of height and push them to be their best They will respect you for this and in turn you will learn a lot from them and have great respect for them Be patient be positive and good luck P S Geoff Carlston Head Coach of Ohio State University and one time Volunteer Assistant Coach at the University of Minnesota under Coach Hebert has a nice DVD out called Winning Without Height http www championshipproductions com cgi bin champ p Volleyball Intangibles for Success Winning Without Height VD 02677A html Check it out Share this Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Click to share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related Chrissie Zartman

  • To Jump Serve or not to Jump Serve – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    to Spain vs Cuba and 91 to Holland vs Cameroon Serve were recorded using a tripod mounted radar gun RESULTS The analysis has shown the predominance of jump serve JUMP 84 9 compared with float serve with jump FLOAT JUMP 5 6 and float serve FLOAT 9 5 Only 25 3 of the total jump serves analysed was successfully stricken back making the first tempo attack possible The respective percentages for FLOAT JUMP and FLOAT were 42 9 and 55 6 Ball speed in JUMP 23 03 3 94 m s 1 was markedly higher compared with FLOAT JUMP and FLOAT 12 05 3 44 m s 1 and 11 47 4 22 m s 1 While negative outcomes 66 7 in FLOAT stand out a better balance between negative and positive outcomes were found in both JUMP 50 and FLOAT JUMP 42 9 However no relationship was found between serve speed and its effectiveness outcome R2 0 in the overall sample and R2 0 005 when pooling the five serve effectiveness categories into negative and positive outcomes In fact JUMP was mainly performed in the span of velocities between 23 06 and 28 06 m s 1 in both error and direct point categories CONCLUSION We found no significant relationship between serve velocity and a better outcome related to effectiveness In addition JUMP and FLOAT JUMP present a better balance between negative and positive outcomes compared with FLOAT http www ncbi nlm nih gov pubmed 18212707 My take on this is that the Jump Spin serve is the most effective in taking the opponent out of their offense In addition it is not the velocity of the Jump Spin serve as much as it is the location that makes the Jump Spin serve effective It seems as if in

    So this is a life saver As this program only records what caused the point to be earned or lost I just touch 3 buttons name action and enter to record the rally result So every rally recorded in SoloStats123 has a record of the last touch earned point or error by your team and your opponent The detail programmed in that collection through use of serving order and therefore lineup rotations means you receive a large amount of useful data real time and for analysis later via its web reports For example Suzy on your team serves an ace In this program you touch I punch the button labeled Suzy touch the green earned button labeled Ace and then touch the button Enter The program automatically updates the score Records that ace for both Suzy and that rotation and shows that your team and Suzy specifically has the serve for the next rally When Suzy serves the next ball long and out of bounds I touch Suzy the orange error button serve and then touch enter to record the error The program automatically records Suzy s serving error records an error and loss of point to both Suzy and that rotation increases the running score by a point to the opponent and now shows that the opponent now has the serve for the next rally You get the idea I think that most teams at the Junior Club and High School levels are working on consistency in skills and increasing the termination frequency of the offense SoloStats123 collects all the data required to do that Cons for SoloStats123 If you do still want to collect standard stats like passing accuracy e g 0 4 scale attack efficiency recording all attack attempts or successful digs playable balls from opponent attacks then another program or tally sheets would need to be used in conjunction with SoloStats Again I believe this would need to be done by an assistant coach or parent to collect all the relevant stats like that while the head coach stay engaged in the play at hand OR you could collect those stats by watching the video of the matches at a later time Which is what I tend to do for passing and set distribution I hope this helps you in some small way If you and others in your club would like a demo I could probably work something out to show you in a session we could arrange sometime after Big South Just let me know As you can tell I am a convert to SoloStats123 for my particular coaching needs Share this Click to share on Twitter Opens in new window Click to share on Facebook Opens in new window Click to share on Google Opens in new window Related iVolleyStats Jim Crossett Kyle Mashima NC Elite NC Volleyball Academy Rotate 123 SoloStats123 2012 03 18 Chuck Rey tweet Previous After 48 Years Dick Katte Retires Next 9 Man Volleyball 7 comments Jay Van

    and results from predictive models Such a system not only provides a data driven decision support platform and integrates data from multiple sources but as we will discuss in Part 2 of this series also has the potential to fundamentally alter and enhance the way a decision maker does his or her job Decision makers are the ultimate customers for all components in the sports analytics framework However the modern professional sports organization typically has many different decision makers including the general manager coaches scouts trainers salary cap managers and other personnel executives Decision makers in different functional areas may utilize different data and models to tackle different types of questions Conversely as mentioned above one key problem today is that decision makers in one functional area such as scouts rarely have easy access to information generated by personnel in other areas such as assistant coaches or salary cap managers To summarize our definition and framework for sports analytics encompasses several different and related aspects associated with turning raw data into information that is valued by and has an impact on decision makers in the world of sports An Explosion of Interest in Sports Analytics Though still a nascent unstructured field as we will discuss in more detail in Part 3 interest and activity in sports analytics has been exploding in recent years While studies applying mathematical models to professional sports data can be traced back more than 50 years 1 it is important to remember what the world looked look like as recently as 2005 when the first issue of the Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports www bepress com jqas was published At the time this journal was launched only two or three NBA teams thought about using advanced statistics in connection with players and strategy Michael Lewis seminal book 2 Moneyball The Art of Winning an Unfair Game about the Oakland A s use of data and models had recently been published and no one had yet thought seriously about the application of motion capture technology in the context of professional sports Just six short years later more than half of NBA teams now utilize the tools of analytics on the team side of the their operation most MLB teams now consider analytics a normal part of baseball operations and companies such as STATS LLC are installing cameras in NBA arenas and NFL stadiums to capture more and more data On a broader scale the annual Sloan Sports Analytics Conference serves as a vivid symbol of the growth of sports analytics The first Sloan conference took place in 2006 in a few classrooms on the MIT campus with less than 300 attendees The 2011 conference was held at the Boston Convention Center and attracted more than 2 000 attendees An Explosion of Data Data within a sports organization used to consist of individual box scores player and team summary statistics text based scouting reports and raw game films However the data available to decision makers has grown

  • The Competitive Cauldron: The Goal is Improvement by Tom Black – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    Mr Daniels book were more profound He took exception to the statement what gets measured gets improved Not so he comments What gets measured recorded and rewarded gets improved This made sense Obviously a high cauldron ranking should reflect in playing time if the cauldron is truly measuring things the way we want them to be measured However there is a more important point here Daniels as well as a number of leadership authors goes on to explain that the negative compels people to do just enough to avoid punishment The positive however propels people to look ahead and achieve more This is what the cauldron was for and was by far the most important reward it provided If we were measuring performance and did not go absolutely crazy every time a player improved in a key category we weren t using it correctly We weren t making sure the improvement stuck We had this great tool in front of us that could really make an impact on a player Instead of telling Sarah Hey Sarah you ve done a nice job making that change in your hitting keep it up We can tell her Hey Sarah you made that change we were discussing and look you re hitting efficiency has improved 20 points That s a great job keep it up We have measured what was important to us we have recorded it and most importantly we have rewarded it in a meaningful way that will stay with the athlete This was a profound change for me as a coach Can we do the same thing through matches and game stats Yes we can and game stats of course matter more But consider holding players accountable for their improvement with the cauldron and then without it There is a tangible effect occurring by having this objective statistical feedback everyday in our practice gym Consider how much better our reserves can be now that we have something to show and talk to them about We can show them just by taking time to sit down with them that their improvement and performance matters to us As Dr Marv Dunphy explains every player has the desire to be addressed as an individual If we measure record and reward their improvement they will get better and thus our overall quality of play improves and everyone is being pushed a little harder A second point by Mr Daniels created a dilemma He stressed that productivity charts must not be competitive That the point of these charts was to solidify the group to compete against outside organizations not to create strife within your own He goes on to explain that every individual within the organization must have a real chance to achieve a top ranking provided they do everything expected of them My assistant coach Tom Haight and myself took to grappling with these issues Tom had created our cauldron for us at SC and we held in common our interest of the statistics and the ability to use them effectively We had a few central questions What was the ultimate point of the cauldron How do you reward properly Will playing time be based solely on the cauldron How do we post or present results Answering the Questions Of course finding the answers to the questions is a continual process There is always a better way out there somewhere But after a summer of wrestling with what we wanted the cauldron to do and say we entered our first season at UCSD with a format we were proud of What is the ultimate purpose of the cauldron Once we answered this fundamental question the rest became easier The effect of the cauldron is indeed to stimulate competition but for us this is not its purpose The purpose of our cauldron is to stimulate constant improvement An intense competitive environment is the necessary impetus for this improvement Players cannot get better unless they are mindful and invested Accountability promotes mindfulness and competition spurs investment How do we reward properly For awhile I toyed with the ideas of making t shirts and passing them out every eleventh day but I believe this was missing the point The principle comes down to the statement Mr Daniels repeatedly hit home that if we want something done we need to positively acknowledge it every time it happens Too often as coaches we criticize often say good job when a player finally gets it right and then leave it alone expecting it to be fixed forever This is not the case We need to reward good behavior good technique constantly in order to reinforce it and hopefully have it become ingrained The objectivity of the cauldron can provide a player with real information they are improving If bad techniques are being practiced the cauldron should be reflecting that as well and we can work to fix them But when we do so it s critical we sit down with the player and objectively show him her the numbers with a solution as to how to improve We never threaten a player with statistics or hang it over their head We want them to be as enthusiastic as possible to receive this information Will our playing time solely be based upon the cauldron No It is a very valuable tool in the decision making process however and if a player is ranking top in her position and I m not starting her I better have clear reasons why and I better communicate them to her This happened a couple of times Generally it was because a particular skill was so low that our line up wouldn t allow us to be that deficient and still be successful i e an outside hitter ranked in the top 6 overall but was in the lower half in hitting We already had an L2 who ranked higher than her overall and the L1 playing ahead of her ranked lower overall but much higher

  • The State Championship Standard – How Statistics Can Get You There – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    high school and club volleyball Imagine having a tool at the ready to review an athlete s performance against the known standard when playing time is being disputed In this way we as coaches can soothe the relationship and provide tangible objective evidence for our choices Statistics even lend themselves to follow up conversations in that you can tell a parent that their daughter has improved her hitting efficiency since your last call In my experience this new information will recruit a challenging parent to your side 9 Team Building In a given season it is our job to get the absolute most out of our player s collective talents One way to do this is to set goals for a team based on statistical performance In our program we will deliver a monthly update so the players can see the team s progress toward our ultimate goal This is a way for the team to rally together and work towards success Another way to build a team is to make decisions based on the numbers Perhaps during tryouts we select a player for the varsity team solely because she has the toughest serve Another example is to track statistical performance by rotation and then start in the best side out or point score rotation There are dozens of ways that a team can be optimized and the fun of understanding the numbers is arranging the pieces of the puzzle to earn the desired outcome 10 Program Building It could be argued that building a program meaning creating a lasting tradition that stretches long after a single team has completed its season is the ultimate in coaching The New York Yankees the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Detroit Red Wings are professional examples of this status By using this data we can track progress over multiple years We can use it to set expectations and standards for every team We can use it to develop our JV freshman and middle school players and coaches For instance we know that our Dif Set has gone up from 22 in 2006 to 4 13 in 2007 to 5 55 in 2008 That means we are growing and improving We can also see that our Kill has increased while we have been able to decrease our E in the same span On the down side we have identified our SA RE Ratio as an area that needs attention Therefore we have worked on developing tougher more consistent serves for our returning players and recruited incoming athletes to address this specific need In this way our program is developing from year to year based on our understanding of statistical performance 11 Practice Planning When we understand the factors that most highly correlate to winning we can change the nature of our practice Perhaps more time should be allocated to certain skill areas For instance serving serve receive and attack are very important in terms of correlation to winning and could be given more time each day Another idea would be to always train around the numbers Instead of just going through a hitting line have an individual player attempt to kill 3 of 9 tosses against a blocker and a defender 12 Drill Design When we design drills we can accurate set goals based on the numbers necessary to correlate with winning Here are a few of my favorite statistical based drills i Ace and Replace SA RE Ratio Focus Because SA RE is of high importance we created this fun simple drill Three players begin on Side A of the net The other competitors in the drill are serving on the opposite side of the net The passers get to stay on if they can successfully receive the ball from the server If they are aced we define this as an unsettable ball or a bad miss meaning a pass that lands outside of the court they must exchange places with the server For every successful pass not an ace the passer makes they get a point For every ace the server get one point and they get to become the passer Because teams will serve away from the best passer once they figure out the game it is helpful to rotate passers Another solution to this problem is to award points to all three passers when a successful pass is made A final solution would be to force the servers to alternate between all three passers ii 4 v 6 FBK Kill Focus We know that Kill has a stronger correlation to winning than limiting Error so we created this uneven numbers game to work on our First Ball Kill FBK It could be played 6 v 6 but this is a drill we used during our spring season when we had smaller numbers One team of 4 consisting of an outside or right side a middle a libero and a setter gets 10 opportunities to receive serve Using a free or down ball would make it easier but would focus on transition percentages Their goal is to kill at minimum 4 balls out of this 10 We allow the 4 side to cover a blocked ball and continued to play out that rally Also we have the team of 6 transition any ball that is not killed to provide game like scoring repetitions iii Lambo Point Score Differential Focus If the ratio of pts set and pts set is examined it is approximately 2 to 1 With that in mind my friend Chris Lamb head coach at Wichita State created this game and I named it after him For this game the scoreboard starts at 3 3 for each team with the first 3 representing the number of points and the second 3 representing the number of points Each time a team scores a point the first 3 moves up Each time they make earn a point the second 3 is moved down Play begins with a serve and score is kept for each team based on the result of each play When a team wins on the side they get a BIG POINT and when they lose on the side a BIG POINT is awarded to the other team We most often play this game by staying in the same rotation until a team either wins or loses Once that happens we award the BIG POINT and then the team that lost rotates The team that is still playing stays in that rotation until they either win or lose We play for the most points through all 6 rotations Ties are decided by having each team pick a rotation and playing it out iv Mary Jo Point Production Focus This game presents two teams of six an opportunity to only focus on point production It is best understood as an alteration to the scoring system and not the flow of play Meaning each team plays regular rally score volleyball but only points in a row are recorded The game begins in the open state Any time during the open phase there is a positive point scoring action kill block or ace the responsible point scoring player or players becomes hot The hot player s must then score a second point in a row in order to earn a BIG POINT one that is recorded on the scoreboard Any subsequent point would also result in a BIG POINT for her team If two or more players were involved in the point scoring action then they are all hot Once any one of these players scores the next point they become the only hot player and they may continue to try to score points for her team If the hot hitter s opponent makes an error attack error block error receiving error ball handling error the hot hitter remains hot If the hot hitter s team makes any type of error the previously mentioned plus service error the game returns to the open phase If the hot hitter s opponent scores a point kill block or ace then that player or players become hot v 5 2 15 Hitting Efficiency Focus The numbers in this drill correspond to the number of kills 5 the number of attack errors 2 out of 15 attempts that a team must earn to win a point These numbers are one combination of our winning Kill 33 Error 14 and Hitting Efficiency 172 Obviously if a team meets the standard they will hit 200 and so we are training at a higher level than we need to execute in a match Here is how we run the drill Team A is trying to earn the 5 2 15 Team A receives serve from Team B and attempts to side out The result of their attack is stated on the scoreboard At the termination of the rally they return to the same rotation and try to side out again until they have a minimum of 15 attack attempts If at any Team A exceeds 2 hitting errors Team B wins If Team A earns 5 kills on the first 5 swings we continue playing to see if they can manage their offense The State Championship Standard How Statistics Can Get You There Rob Beam Head Volleyball Coach Oakland University 1 Introduction Wikipedia defines statistics as a mathematical science pertaining to the collection analysis interpretation explanation and presentation of data In describing their use the website continues Statistics provide tools for prediction and forecasting While many people will stare blankly at me or perhaps run in the opposite direction when I admit this but this is exciting news to me In fact it is so exciting I think that I can help each of you move closer to a state championship based on understanding statistics In this session I will show you how to manipulate the information contained in a basic box score to make it more meaningful Along the way we will discover the factors or components that most strongly correlate with winning and losing We will also debunk long perpetuated volleyball myths And finally we will take this information and use it to shape 17 different aspects of our program including our drill designs match evaluations player interactions and more 2 A Statistical Caveat The best we can do is correlation a Definition of Correlation A relationship in which two or more things are mutual or complementary In statistics the degree to which two or more variables are related and change together Encarta Dictionary b Definition of Causality Is the process of making something happen It denotes a necessary relationship between one event cause and another event effect Wikipedia c The unfortunate truth is that we cannot create causality Meaning if we simply kill more balls although that would be a good start as we will learn later it will not cause a win At best an increase in kills set would correlate strongly with winning While this is a small distinction it is a necessary one

Championship Standard What if I told you that based on what we have already learned we have the information necessary to win a State Championship While it might be hard to believe it is all there In order to accurately prepare for this presentation I evaluated 80 High School Matches at the State Semifinal and Finals levels in Michigan Ohio and Illinois In Chart A you will find the results of this data collection The whole spreadsheet is included as well and is sorted by Dif Set In the left column you will see 8 critical statistics There are then four additional columns grouped by either Correlation to Winning or Correlation to Losing In the former we find the information that correlates with a team winning a match This is easily understood as if you do this you tend to win In the latter we find the number that correlates with losing Meaning if you are achieving at or below these levels you are likely to lose The Absolute number is the threshold number where every team that achieved that level of performance won While this is interesting information it would be very difficult to train a team at these levels Even the undefeated 2008 Penn State National Championship team barely reached the 11 3 Dif Set mark In two areas you will notice that there are question marks That means that in that statistic there was no threshold for performance that correlated with an outcome The Strong number is the more practical number This is the level of performance at which there was a high correlation with the corresponding outcome These Strong numbers are where I believe we should focus our attention Correlation to Winning Correlation to Losing Strong Absolute Strong Absolute Kill K TA 33 30 42 90 30 10 27 70 Error E TA 14 20 10 40 17 00 22 40 Hit Eff K E TA 0 172 0 281 0 150 0

Statistics Matter Most Now that we have the standards at which we want to perform it is important to know which statistics correlate the strongest with winning and losing matches Chart B lists the 3 statistics that correlate best with winning Chart C lists the 3 statistics that correlate best with losing Chart D lists in order the statistics and their cumulative strength or importance to winning Based on the analysis in Chart D it turns out that the Dif Set is the most important number that you can know It is also interesting to see that the point side of this ratio finished second overall and is far more significant than the points side The third most important number is Hitting Efficiency And surprisingly the fourth most important measure of performance is a team s Ace to Receiving Error Ratio Chart B Data based on Strong Correlation to Winning Numbers The percent was determined by dividing the number of wins by the total number of matches present for a given statistical measure Winning Correlative Value Ranking 1 Dif Set 96 55 2 SA RE 87 50 3 Hit Eff 84 21 4 Pts Set 83 34 5 Pts Set 83 34 6 Kill 81 25 7 SA SE 68 00 8 Error 67 86 Chart C Data based on Strong Correlation to Losing Numbers The percent was determined by dividing the number of wins by the total number of matches present for a given statistical measure Losing Correlative Value Ranking 1 Pts Set 96 42 2 Dif Set 90 32 3 Hit Eff 87 80 4 Kill 87 50 5 SA RE 80 00 6 SA SE 80 00 7 Error 78 26 8 Pts Set 70 00 Chart D Ranking was determined by adding the two ranked finishes of each statistical measure with the lowest cumulative number being the best Cumulative Correlative Value Ranking 1 Dif Set 2 Pts Set 3 Hit Eff 4 SA RE 5 Kill 6 Pts Set 7 SA SE 8 Error 7 Interpretations and Implications How do I apply this knowledge a Basic Losing Factor Analysis It is of utmost important to understand what factor or factors statistically correlate with a losing outcome Here is a real example to illustrate the utility of the numbers In 2008 we averaged a 4 63 set in Dif Set When I looked closer at our point production it was clear that we needed to score more points in the attacking component of that number Further examination revealed a need to increase our Hit Eff by increasing the Kill side of the equation This led me to look at our set distribution to see if our highest Kill attackers were receiving enough balls It turns out that less than 20 of our offense was set to our top 2 attackers both middle hitters in terms of Kill In our spring season we worked very hard to correct this and we were able to increase our middle distribution to over 38 of our offense This led to a direct increase in Dif Set as we were able to achieve a 7 56 set because of this new focus b Basic Winning Factor Analysis
