  • Women Who Play Sports Are More Successful ~ Especially in Business – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    70 of children in the U S are dropping out of organized sports before the age of 13 This is particularly alarming for women because studies have shown that girls who play sports are more likely to graduate from college find a job and be employed in male dominated industries EY research shows that among senior business women in the C suite today 94 played sports and over half played at a university level suggesting a strong correlation between their success in sports and their success in business In fact of the 400 women EY surveyed 75 said that a candidate s background in sports positively influenced their decision to hire them These women put a particular premium on female athletes because they know very personally how participating in sports can impact work ethic So to have young women drop out of sport at an early age is not only an alarming statistic it is a wake up call for parents Their girls could prematurely be walking away from something that could have a bigger long term effect See also How Co Ed Classrooms Are Holding Back Future Female Leaders These statistics have caused me to reflect on my own experience as a young athlete and specifically the role my parents played I was a four sport athlete in high school I played basketball softball tennis and golf My true passion was softball but basketball was an intercollegiate sport I eventually decided to pursue basketball in college at Purdue and leave the other three sports behind But my parents never tried to make me pursue just one sport I loved the variety I only narrowed to one sport in college when as a scholarship athlete it was necessary My father empowered me to play He and my mother showed up to every game They truly cared And I loved having them there I can t imagine a world where they weren t there But there was never an expectation They just loved watching me play And I loved them watching me Often my father and I would discuss my performance after games but only if I wanted to I would ask him questions and he would answer We discussed ways I could improve and he would practice with me in our backyard He knew I didn t need to be told I had made a mistake but rather understand how not to do it again And he would help me with that There s no doubt that it was my parents interest and support that encouraged me to continue playing sports throughout my childhood Their interest was pure joy not judgment or unfair criticism They were all in because I was all in When I was younger organized sports was still novel for girls When my friends quit playing and dropped out to be more like girls I kept going And my parents went with me I never wanted to stop so I didn t And I know that the

    to write 2016 even though we still write 2015 Or similar to the stages we go through being called Boyfriend Fiance and Husband Hearing Dad applied to me takes me aback for an instance and then it settles in Oh yeah that s me Just as I always strive and educate myself to be a better coach it s cool how as I do the same to be a better Dad how much applies to coaching I came across this recent passage Like it or not nurturing a boys heart is much more akin to growing a tree than it is to constructing a building There isn t a list of steps to take that will have our sons turn out the way we want Who they are meant to be is already written in to their hearts and our responsibility as fathers to discern it and help nurture it out of them How a father engages a boy s heart directly affects who he will grow into as a man As much as I may want my son to be a setter on the Olympic team I have to realize he is his own being and it is my responsibility to groom him to be the best at what he s supposed to be the best at As a coach I have players that have decided to be the best at volleyball and it is now my responsibility to groom them to be the best at their position I can t make them be the best but help nuture it out of them I like that A better parent a better coach today 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

  • Al Scates – Unsung Coaching Legend – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    titles than Wooden A coach whose old program actually still wins Well there is one He coached for UCLA His name is Al Scates Who s Al Scates Great question I had no idea who he was until my friend s dad randomly told me about him I would love to see a video like this one in which UCLA students are asked if they have any clue who Scates is Scates was the UCLA me n s volleyball coach for 50 years longer than Wooden s 29 from 1963 to 2012 He won 19 NCAA championships tied for the most by a coach in a single sport in NCAA history He had a greater contribution to the trophies in this laughable video than anyone Another place where Scates has Wooden beat You can still see evidence of his legacy Michael Sealy coaches the women s volleyball team right now for UCLA Before Sealy Andy Banachowski had the job for 45 years As for the men s team John Speraw has been in charge since he took Scates job in 2013 What do they have in common All three of them at one point played for Scates There have only been four UCLA volleyball coaches since 1965 and all of them that weren t Scates played for Scates Meanwhile UCLA basketball has won fewer championships its program is no longer relevant and the team is losing its connection to Wooden Steve Alford played at Indiana University Now basketball and volleyball are very different sports and I have no interest in taking anything away from John Wooden Obviously there are some difficulties in creating a winning basketball program that don t come up in volleyball I just don t understand how someone like Scates can get such little attention for so

  • A Navy SEAL Veteran’s 5 Aspects of Emotional Intelligence Required for Effective Leadership – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    management and effective communication As a Navy SEAL veteran entrepreneur and leader of one of the fastest growing digital marketing agencies in the country I have experienced many emotions and become very aware of how those emotions can have a positive or negative effect on my ability to inspire and lead a team Many individuals try to shut off their feelings but as much as we distort deny and bury our emotions and memories we can t ever eliminate them You can learn to be emotionally independent and gain the attributes that allow you to have emotional intelligence by connecting to core emotions accepting them and being aware of how they affect your decisions and actions Being able to relate behaviors and challenges of emotional intelligence on workplace performance is an immense advantage in building an exceptional team One of the most common factors that leads to retention issues is communication deficiencies that create disengagement and doubt A leader lacking in emotional intelligence is not able to effectively gauge the needs wants and expectations of those they lead Leaders who react from their emotions without filtering them can create mistrust amongst their staff and can seriously jeopardize their working relationships Reacting with erratic emotions can be detrimental to overall culture attitudes and positive feelings toward the company and the mission Good leaders must be self aware and understand how their verbal and non verbal communication can affect the team To help understand the emotional intelligence competencies required for effective leadership I would recommend determining where you stand on the below elements Self Assessment This can be defined as having the ability to recognize one s own emotions strengths weaknesses values and drivers and understanding their impact on others Without reflection we cannot truly understand who we are why we make certain decisions what we are good at and where we fall short In order to reach your maximum potential you must be confident in who you are understanding the good with the bad Those that have a strong understanding of who they are and what they want to work on can improve themselves on a regular basis Self regulation Also known as discipline This involves controlling or redirecting our disruptive emotions and adapting to change circumstances in order to keep the team moving in a positive direction Leaders can t afford to lose their cool Being calm is contagious as is panic When you take on a leadership role you can no longer afford to panic when things get stressful When you stay calm and positive you can think and communicate more clearly with your team Empathy and Compassion Empathy is the ability to put yourself in someone else s shoes and understand how they may feel or react to a certain situation When one has empathy the capacity to feel compassion is open The emotion that we feel in response to suffering that motivates a desire to help The more we can relate to others the better we will

  • What’s the Point of a Professor? – Volleyball Coach Chuck Rey | Volleyball Blog | College Volleyball Coach
    a note from your room but those queries are too curt for genuine mentoring We need face time Here though are the meager numbers For a majority of undergraduates beyond the two and a half hours per week in class contact ranges from negligible to nonexistent In their first year 33 percent of students report that they never talk with professors outside of class while 42 percent do so only sometimes Seniors lower that disengagement rate only a bit with 25 percent never talking to professors and 40 percent sometimes It hasn t always been this way I revered many of my teachers Todd Gitlin said when we met at the New York Public Library last month He s a respected professor of journalism and sociology at Columbia but in the 1960s he was a fiery working class kid at Harvard before becoming president of Students for a Democratic Society I asked if student unrest back then included disregard of the faculty Not at all he said Nobody targeted professors Militants attacked the administration for betraying what the best professors embodied the free inquisitive space of the Ivory Tower I saw the same thing in my time at the University of California Los Angeles in the early 1980s when you couldn t walk down the row of faculty offices without stepping over the outstretched legs of English majors lining up for consultations First year classes could be as large as 400 but by junior year you settled into a field and got to know a few professors well enough to chat with them regularly and at length We knew and they knew that these moments were the heart of liberal education In our hunger for guidance we were ordinary The American Freshman Survey which has followed students since 1966 proves the point One prompt in the questionnaire asks entering freshmen about objectives considered to be essential or very important In 1967 86 percent of respondents checked developing a meaningful philosophy of life more than double the number who said being very well off financially Naturally students looked to professors for moral and worldly understanding Since then though finding meaning and making money have traded places The first has plummeted to 45 percent the second has soared to 82 percent I returned to U C L A on a mild afternoon in February and found the hallways quiet and dim Dozens of 20 year olds strolled and chattered on the quad outside but in the English department only one in eight doors was open and barely a half dozen of the department s 1 400 majors waited for a chance to speak When college is more about career than ideas when paycheck matters more than wisdom the role of professors changes We may be 50 year olds at the front of the room with decades of reading writing travel archives or labs under our belts with 80 courses taught but students don t lie in bed mulling over what we said
