A podcast about current events in collegiate athletics, volleyball, college recruiting and more. I will have guest high school, club and specific college coaches on also, discussing various topics on recruiting and everything else volleyball.
Cover it all today! From the NCAA basketball women's "weight room", to the recruiting dead period to the idea that we need to do a better job of NOT wasting time during the recruiting process. Enjoy! :)
I received a great question this past week from a 2023 athlete. I try to answer that question as best as I can. There are a lot of variables in recruiting, especially now, so please do your best to make sure that you are letting coaches know HOW interested you are in their program.
Today on the show I talk about the feathers I apparently ruffled when it came to my blog post about athletes not really touching 10', that NOW is a great time to work on your film and the opportunities out there for athletes right now gets smaller and smaller each day.
Today on the podcast I've got Head Volleyball Coach for Lovejoy High School, Ryan Mitchell. A back-to-back State Champion, Ryan and I talked about what the season looked like under the umbrella of COVID. Unfortunately I did remove the last 15 minutes or so from our conversation because of the lag, but I will plan on having Ryan on again in the near future to talk more. Huge thanks to him for being on in the midst of his busy schedule!
In announcement yesterday afternoon, Triple Crown said they were postponing their tournament until May. This is a HUGE bummer for all of those athletes that were hoping to get evaluated next month and certainly does not start the club volleyball season on a positive trend.
Erin is a former D1 athlete at Baylor, coach and currently has 2 daughters playing at the college and high school level.
I apologize for all of the "clicking" in the background, I'm not sure what was going on while we were recording. I do feel like it is a good time to mention that you can support this podcast by clicking on the link on Anchor :) that link should be just below this text. I do appreciate all of your support and a huge THANK YOU for all of you that listen each week!
With the dead period being extended through April 15th, there is going to be a lot that we can to do help guide everyone through the process and improve how we communicate with athletes and coaches. My plan is to hash a lot of that out over the next several weeks and work with college coaches and athletes to insure we are on the same page leading into the END (hopefully) of the dead period.
Signing Day is always an awesome day and I really have enjoyed celebrating with athletes over the last couple of years! Today I answer some signing day questions and a question about playing in the P5.
Joe and I finish our conversation on the current state of volleyball right now. We get a little bit off topic, but that's okay! Huge thanks to Joe for being on with me. I appreciate everything he does and is doing for the sport of volleyball.
Joe is the Club Director of TAV Houston, former college coach and just an all around awesome guy. He and I got to chat about the current events surrounding club and college volleyball. This is Part 1; check back in a couple of days for Part 2.
Today we are talking about what is going to happen moving forward with the Fall season and why the NCAA's decision on fall sports could be huge. Also, starting a new segment called "Off The Court" where I am going to talk about one topic, non-volleyball related that I think is interesting and we just HAD to talk about Joe Kelly.
Today on the show we are talking about potential challenges that lay ahead and my buddy Hugh Hernesman from Jacksonville Skyline and I chat a little bit about the AAU Tournament down in Florida last weekend.
Today is June 15th a very exciting day for the 2022 class. This morning we are talking about finding our VALUE as a person and discussing the possibility that athletes will NOT be able to take visits this fall season.
Greg is an avid volleyball fan. He is a statistics professor and the voice on radio and TV for the SFA Ladyjack Volleyball program. You can check out a piece of what he does on SFAVolleyblog.net. Today we talked about the state of athletics throughout the pandemic and how we can help grow the sport in the midst of everything going on right now.
