Adding volleyball training equipment to a volleyball program can help benefit both the coaches and athletes by making practice time more efficient. By varying types of equipment, coaches are able to target both offensive and defensive positions. If you are a coach looking for ideas to help supplement your volleyball training, we’ve developed a quick volleyball training equipment guide below.
Jump training for volleyball players is imperative throughout the season. Some coaches believe in incorporating jump training into their practice naturally, and other coaches believe in keeping their jump training separate from the practice. Volleyball plyometric exercises when incorporated help players move faster on the court, and help players increase their vertical jump. To help coaches gain a better understanding of each athlete, it’s important to measure standing reach and vertical jump at the start of the season with a jump training tool. Jump training equipment gives athletes a goal to work toward during the season, and allows them to track their improvement.
Coaches often use their volleyball net as a training tool for all positions. To help assist the coach with instruction, Sports Imports offers fully customizable Top Net Tapes, as well as a standard Training Top Net Tape. The customizable Top Net Tape allows the coach to section the net based on setting zones, defensive zones, hitting zones, or even serving zones based on the coach’s preference. Using Top Net Tape training equipment allows players to have visual targets which helps assist the visual learners on a team.
Volleyball Coaches Boxes are used for a wide variety of purposes, and the patented design is now available in a range of different sizes. The Coaches Box is helpful for coaches to be able to stand at net height to be able to hit at players from different angles, and also offer a block without jumping. Many coaches use two or more coaches boxes so that drills can be run across the entire net. The non-slip top platform allows coaches to feel secure and balanced while running drills. Coaches Boxes also allow players to swing from net height and block as well, which enables players to see the volleyball court from a new perspective. The Coaches Box also folds up easily to just 3 inches wide to store nicely in small storage spaces. The portability of the Coaches Box make it easy to use for both indoor and beach volleyball. Attaching a carrying strap to the Coaches Box also creates ease of mobility for carrying and traveling. Adding accessories such as an Indoor Ball Cart with the Top Cart attachment to the coaches box can help a coach run volleyball practices more efficiently.
