Beneficial activities for coaches as International Level II
Course closes in Tijuana
TIJUANA, Mexico, November 22, 2017 - Activities of the
International Level II Course for Volleyball Coaches coaches
were beneficial for attendees who gathered at the FIVB-Norceca
Regional Development Center, located in the High Performance
The coaches seeking certification had the opportunity to work
with practical sessions, as well as different game systems and
fundamentals. One of them was blocking and its different styles.
“Blocking system varies, it is referred to the strategy adopted
by the blockers to oppose the rapid attack of the opponent,"
said coach and instructor Rubén Sainz. "We have for example the
next ones: reading, priority and commitment," he said.
Different tools, such as the use of Data Volley, a program in
charge of collecting the statistics of each game and player in
real time, as well as a talk on Sports Medicine and some
exercises on the court, were part of the dynamics that took part
for five days.
The use of Data Volley, along with the VIS (Volleyball
Information System) has been a great resource to interpret the
performance of a team.
"Technology have advanced as well as many tools. Today we have
many choices to work on,” said the course director. "We can
follow World championships, Olympic Games or competitions of the
Olympic cycle, and new trends that are marked in volleyball,"
"We have to live up to the expectations of those trends. As
professionals, a lot of expectations must always be about us,
because there are athletes who expect the best from us. We
expect a level III certification in two or three years, and we
must prepare for it as I hope this course has been very useful,"
the Cuban coach remarked.
On behalf of Baja California Sports Institute Director, Saul
Castro Verdugo; and Norceca President, Cristobal Marte Hoffiz,
Center Operations Director, Alberto Arreola, congratulated the
attendees and was in charge of the certification ceremony along
with coach Sainz and José Paz, who served as training
coordinator as well as Norceca Supervisor, Jacqueline Montes.
