Witness the initial practices of Penn State's 2010 National Championship season! See six practice sessions over a three day period that lead to the ultimate prize in college volleyball. These are the same practices that have led Penn State to four straight NCAA titiles.
Interspersed throughout each practice are skill and strategy discussions Rose uses to outline and clarify expectations for playing Penn State volleyball. You will gain invaluable nuggets of coaching insight that reflect Rose's style of play and demonstrate his philosophy of letting players play and work through their challenges, rather than stopping and correcting every mistake.
Watching these practices will allow you study Rose's daily practice structure, cue words, philosophy and glean numerous drills to implement into your program.
Day 3 Practice
This practice centers around getting the new players acclimated to the program and allows the returnees to acclimate to their new teammates. The practice also serves as a "heads up" into the workload that the players will be asked to take on throughout the season. Using a mix of instruction, drills, conditioning and competition, Rose allows his athletes to compete versus overloading them with technical instruction.
Day 1, Practice 1
Day 2 practices expose the players to several offensive skills, movement patterns, net play, serving and passing. The practice ends with competitive 6-on-6 play how players compete at the end of a long day of practice and who's ready to play.
Day 2, Practice 1
Day 3 continues with the philosophy of teaching players to play hard while infusing technical skills and competitive play. The Penn State style of going hard all the time continues to be hammered home with the amount of time Rose dedicates to each drill and each concept.

5 DVDs (498 minutes). 2011.
I have the All-Access DVDs from PSU, Florida, Illinois and Nebraska and surprisingly I would rate this at the bottom. A large portion of the videos is Russ giving his theories behind what he does and how he runs the program, which is great, however I feel the videos lack in some other areas. For a 5-disc video series it falls a bit short compared to the others.
This series is better for advanced coaches in better programs.
If you want to watch really good players run simple drills, then this is for you. Frankly, this approach would bore my club kids to death and watching them stand in lines that are 8 players deep makes me crazy.
It's pretty easy to coach the best players in the country - you just chip balls and watch them go. This is NOT a series for player development!
Great series that shows team building and training athletes to compete. Coach Rose also shows how to teach the game with drills that replicate the game
