    62. Using "Cue Words" And Hand Signals

    62. Using "Cue Words" And Hand Signals

    Why cue words + hand signals are important while coaching volleyball: 

    1. Allow you to coach volleyball with a mask on. 

    2. Help quiet coaches communicate better in loud gyms with their teams. 

    3. Teach players the basics of volleyball in an easy-to-understand manner. 

    4. Replace long technical descriptions of techniques and coaching philosophy into just a few words.

Amazing Podcasts for Coaches

I’ve learned so much from this podcast!

Paige Tonz ,

Sooooo good!

I have had the privilege of getting to know Whitney even outside the podcast. She is genuine, so kind, and has a heart to serve! I love the extremely relevant topics and value she provides not only for coaches, but the volleyball (and sports) community. Her podcast is a MUST LISTEN if you are a coach.

P.S. I had the best time being a guest on her podcast as well! Thank you Whitney for all that you do for the sport, coaches, and girl athletes!
