Kessel passes on wisdom to Scottish volleyball
Lausanne, Switzerland, February 3, 2017 – US Coaching Hall of Fame member John Kessell crossed the Atlantic Ocean recently to visit Scotland to run coaching seminars in three different cities.
Kessel ran sessions in Scottish capital Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling over two days which were attended by 42 coaches and 18 players, including members of the men’s and women’s national teams.
Kessel is a Level 4 FIVB coaching instructor and director of development for USA Volleyball and he places great emphasis on the need to make each drill as close as possible to being match-relevant as well as the need to be equally strong with both hands.
Scotland is one of 60 countries that Kessel is visiting for coaching seminars and he won over those present with his presentation style and good humour when working with the players and coaches.
