GAIN CONFIDENCE IN YOUR COACHING ABILITIES
Looking for help on how to coach volleyball? You’ve come to the right place! Get The Pancake (pancake is a volleyball term, you’ll learn it soon if you don’t know it already ;)) has lots of FREE volleyball drills, plenty of coaching tips, and entire practice plans for you to use with your volleyball team.
LEARN THE “WHY”
Instead of just sharing volleyball drills and expecting you to go and use them, I do a DEEP DIVE into the skills involved in the drill, issues you might run into, and I explain WHY you do the drill, instead of just telling you how to run it!
Sure, knowing how to do the footwork and armswing in the three-step approach will get you THROUGH your season… but don’t you want to know WHY you do this approach? Do you want to be able to help your players develop and grow in the sport, instead of just show up and play?
FIND VARIATIONS SO EACH DRILL CAN WORK FOR YOUR TEAM
One of the most challenging aspects of finding drills online is knowing if they’re going to work for your team or not. That’s why I provide variations to show how to make most of these drills easier or more challenging, depending on what level your team is at. Youth volleyball teams and high school volleyball teams can run the same drill and benefit from it… They’ll just have different goals and run it a little differently! That means these drills can grow with your team.
LEARN HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN DRILLS
But I don’t want you to NEED online drills all the time. I want you to also understand volleyball enough to get creative with your team and design your own drills! The purpose of this site is to help you build confidence in your coaching abilities by teaching you aspects of the sport which go beyond surface level.
Get The Pancake is a place where I share what has worked for me (and what hasn’t!) and I am constantly adding new drills, coaching advice, and tips to help you have a successful season.
So kick your feet up, grab a cup of coffee, and poke around my collection of new (and classic!) volleyball drills. Follow that with a quick read on some coaching philosophy, then head over to The Shop to see the equipment and tools I use with my own teams.
Listen to the creator of Get The Pancake, Whitney Bartiuk, discuss her coaching philosophies and how she got her start coaching volleyball in the 11th episode of the Wait Training Podcast. Available for free download on iTunes and many other podcast platforms!
