The workshop was led by the assistant coach (to Julio Velasco) of the national senior men’s team, Juan Manuel Cichello, who like Velasco hails from Argentina. The session featured theoretical explanations of updates and modern techniques.
There was also a session on tactics of volleyball, including coaching during the match, defensive tactics, offensive tactics, and analysis of opposing teams.
Cichello emphasized that during the match a coach should take notes for themselves, especially on players’ tactical mistakes. During the next training they should work over these mistakes.
