Venice Volleyball Update

We are well into the summer training. We are in a power phase right now. Using sandbags for resistance, doing pulling movements and jumping on Mondays and Wednesdays and then a combination of agility/quickness work combined with core work on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They start at 7:00Am with an hour of work on offense and then work an hour on defense, and then they work with me. These kids really work, for me it proves that if this generation is challenged they will raise to the occasion. Next week they are off, then there is one more week of training and then they will go to Auburn for a week long team camp. Then they are off for two weeks, actual practice starts August 6. Here are a few
pictures from today’s workout.

Interesting to see that you are using the workout bags.

Great concept but I don't think that they would fly here in the States as each unit is just too expensive for practical purposes.

Have a great summer!

Why workout bags would not fly in the States? Too expensive for practical purposes?

What about filling up over size tire tubes with sands?

If this is the Venice Fl high school team, I went to college with a girl who went there. She was a great VB player. She really talked up the program there at the high school.

One man's trash is another's treasure.

Difference between Yes, I can and No, I can't...is just that.

How is the rugby team doing?

It was refreshing to see a man of your experience working with a developing sport(in the states).

I think of what it must be like to be working with (UK)football back in NZ.

What are these girls doing with sand bags? Hope one of them is not squatting with the bag? Because her technique looks poor.
