College Volleyball Training, Sand Volleyball, Being A Dinosaur And
10 Thoughts from Russ Rose
Three-time NCAA Women's Volleyball Champion Russ Rose gives his thoughts on on a range
of questions with subjects ranging from what he thinks about the
emergence and override of sand volleyball in college to what it's like being a dinosaur.
Volleyball News On the Net
According to Ryan Spoon on the athlete network and recruiting platform berecruited.com,
college volleyball coaches were the most active participants on the site, which contributed
to "a growth in activity in women's college sports in 2009."
“I thought we went about as far as we could in the tournament,” Minnesota head coach Mike Hebert said. “Destinee Hooker and those kids [at Texas] are athletes that are beyond the normal team in Division I college volleyball.”
Accompanying his article with a great volleyball action picture shot by Ian Larson and an
interview with head volleyball coach Mike Hebert, Keith Beise chronicles the
Minnesota Gophers women's volleyball team's rise to the #4 ranking in the nation.
What the College Volleyball Coach said...
I love this blog and I would recommend it to all volleyball parents to read. I'm still trying to
figure out who it is, but I do know we agree on a lot of the same recruiting principles. This week the College
Volleyball Coach answers a great question about whether freshmen high school volleyball players
can contact a college coach.
Okay now for college sand volleyball in Alaska.
Russ may not be a fan but the women's volleyball department at the University of
Alaska-Anchorage thinks that the addition of sand volleyball in college is a good thing.
It never fails to amaze me that in many situations or 'discussions"
such as these the seemingly "most disadvantaged" are oftern the ones more likely to
envision the bigger picture. Okay I'll ask, just like the question was asked in the
article...would you go to Alaska to play beach volleyball?
I don't know if there are any volleyball athletes in this new photography book, although in
photographer Rick Rickman's interview he states "on the East Coast, you find a lot of people
who play hockey. On the West Coast you find surfers and volleyball players. It's different
sports, but similar intensity."
As a former professional photographer and "mature" (lol) retired pro volleyball athlete,
I can appreciate the spirit with which the action took place both behind the camera and
in front of the lens. For me it's the perfect combination. Regardless of your age, maybe
you'll find an image that inspires you.
