What will be the future for digital and technical devices for coaches in volleyball?
It will be under constant development; if you don't want to follow this digital path as a learning coach then it's maybe better to quit in my opinion. I think further integration of systems like Volley-Train will be necessary to keep the growing stream of data quick and clearly accessible.
Integration of Volley-Train is currently focussed around training but it will evolve more towards the matches also.
A platform where devices like Polar heartbeart, VERT jumping, Data Volley analysis, injury and revalidation management, power or, as we like to call it, speed training programs will be connected.
This also applies to relevant psychological data. What is the best way to teach player X or how can I deal with player Y in a stressful situation?
Again, you can't remember everything but by structured storage you can find it quickly and put it into practice.
Volley-Train will soon be the platform where everything concerning your team comes together, and where you store scouting data on future prospects and players.
Within private Volleyball Schools or the Regional Talent Centres where coaches work with a lot of different players it might be a relief to have Volley-Train at their disposal.
Before a practice session you can review the prepared practice and walk through the points of attention for each player individually.
It's not unthinkable that using Volley-Train will help to build the image of organisations which use the system. The fact that they are users of the system will make their work both more personal and effective.
