Courtney Thompson, of the US Women's National Team, goes through what she feels makes her a better setter and leader. Thompson shares her thoughts on how to create practice sessions that make you better, explaining her four aspects of how to better coach drills. Her in-depth explanations cover things like drills that measure improvement, drills that are uncomfortable, and ways coaches can explain the focus and goals of drills while providing feedback.
Thompson lays out several key points for what really helps her improve:
Thompson demonstrates some of her favorite drills that the top coaches in the world put her through. These drills put the main focus on the setters, but are very game like and include other aspects of the game as well. As the drills are being performed Thompson gives feedback that helps the players to make changes during the drill. Thompson gives a great explanation on how the use of video during practices and drills helps players receive instant feedback and helps them make adjustments during the drill.
After walking players through setting drill demos, Thompson fields questions from coaches and players about how to become a top-notch setter! Through anecdotes about personal experiences with a number of great coaches, Thompson shares how her experiences have helped her become the top athlete she is and how she continues to develop as a leader and grow her craft as a setter. She encourages setters to learn to read their passers in order to best adjust no matter how the ball comes off their arms. Thompson also explains the benefit of giving feedback during games the same way as during practices for consistency and clear understanding.
