Joint meeting of Coaching and Technical Commissions examines key research
Lausanne, Switzerland, January 29, 2016 - A joint meeting of the Coaching and Technical Commissions held at the FIVB headquarters on Thursday and Friday reviewed reports on key research for the International Volleyball Federation, including the National Federation Survey and Coaches Survey.
A joint meeting of the Coaching and Technical Commissions was held at the FIVB headquarters in Lausanne on Thursday and Friday|
The National Federation Survey findings included data on the take up of volleyball in schools across the continental confederations, identified coaching programmes and event hosting as key development initiatives, and looked at the best ways for the FIVB to support its member federations. The Coaches Survey collected information on the age and gender of volleyball coaches, but also on how they use manuals, online tools including coaching videos made available on YouTube, and resources made available through e-learning.
The joint meeting also reviewed website metrics for development activities, as well as types of online content and resources made available to players and officials. Key performance indicators for development activities were also discussed, covering the number of courses organised over the year and course participation.
The Coaching and Technical Commissions also heard reports on the new technology being brought into the sport, including the digital net, which will be used at the top FIVB events. High resolution and lighter resolution versions of the net will be in place for next year's events. LED Boards will also be used at Group 1 matches in the FIVB Volleyball World League and World Grand Prix and at Grand Slam events in the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour.
The members of the Coaching and Technical Commissions then participated in a workshop on the repurposing of the Coaches Course Level II and Level III, as well as the implementation of a Teachers Course for Volleyball at School. The participants in the workshop also examined the implications of a two-hour duration for matches.
