Course authors, teachers:
Vladimir Alekno, Dmitriy Sosnin, Dmitriy Maryukhich
The modern world is a world of high technologies and speeds. Sport is no exception, volleyball in particular. The speed of the game is high and the speed of decision making is high too.
This course clearly shows what kind of decisions can be made using a wide number of software programs. The course helped me build a game analysis system. I looked at volleyball from a completely different angle, I noticed how with the help of various software I could help each player individually, analyze their technique and help in developing a new one.
A separate block of material is dedicated to analytics and the breakdown of volleyball into isolated tiny elements - details that make up the game. It is about how you can “decompose” each player and the opponent, how you can understand and develop your tactics using numbers. BUT IT IS PEOPLE WHO PLAY!!!
The course has really expanded the boundaries of volleyball for me. With the help of modern technologies, we can automate so many things that will help us to develop volleyball in the future.
Thank you very much for the course.
Great course! Everything is described in great detail, with specific examples. The speakers talk a lot about what statistics are, how not to get lost in the data provided by the trainers-statisticians, how to use this data to the opponent analyze and prepare the team for the game, as well as to control the process of preparation for the game. They tell you where this data comes from, what kind of equipment is needed, which programs are used and how many people you need for this. It is described in detail and shown how to plan preparation for a game with a specific opponent, how to detect their weaknesses and see what, how and when needs to be done to achieve the desired result. It is explained why we need statistics in the training process, how to organize a training session using the latest video replay technologies with the maximum benefit for the players and with a minimum of time spent, how to keep statistics in the training process and why, how the work of the coaching staff is structured in top-level teams. You also learn who is responsible for what in the coaching team, how to control performance throughout the training and in a real game. It is shown how to play the game, how areas of competence are distributed, what kind of interactions there are in the coaching team, which technologies and techniques are used by the coaching staff at the game to control and adjust the game plan, what needs to be done to strengthen or change the team's game and when. It is described in great detail how to analyze the game of both a specific player and the team as a whole, not only after an entire game, but also after a certain segment of the championship or tournament, as well as how to carry out a general analysis of the championship. It is important to monitor and control the performance dynamics of a player and a team. Thank you very much for the course! Very informative, clear and useful for a coach. It is a must for coaching staff in teams of any level!
It is a very useful course in analytics and statistics, revealing all the subtleties of analytical work. Starting from the very beginnings of analytics: who makes the reports, what types of reports exist, what information they contain, when it appeared, as well as the first examples of analysis. They talk about game actions: categories, types of assessment. It is also explained by each element, what factors are taken into account, what is the difference between performance and efficiency. Combinations, analysis of the passer's game, tactical settings, parameters and tasks are also discussed. They talk about preparation for the game, various volleyball programs, their application, a detailed analysis of what equipment is used, how it works, a detailed description (with examples) of the technologies used, how they help throughout preparation and the game itself. It is talked about interactions between the coaching staff, both in the training and game process, about how the relationship is built in the team. You learn a lot about keeping statistics in training and in the game, its pros and cons, differences between the processes. You learn what kind of rating services exist, how to work with them and what their most useful points are, how the coaching staff work during the game, what their areas of responsibility are, which programs and equipment they use. All the information provided in the course was very helpful and greatly helped in terms of understanding analytics and statistics in modern volleyball.
This course, in my opinion, is more relevant than ever. Everything is changing, including in professional sports. Modern technologies determine the direction of their development. To be successful, you have to keep up with modern trends. The work of a coach, like the work of a player, is a constant and continuous process - there is no final point where you can calm down and stop, although it all depends on the specific goals. If you want to be ahead, at the top, then you need to constantly grow. The technical aspects of the game have already been analyzed many times and from different angles: physiological, biomechanical, and even situational. Physical training too was examined in great detail during the VFR seminars. Also, there is a lot of material dedicated to the organization of the game as a whole, but regarding analytics and statistics - this is the first time they are examined in such detail. The authors of the course have put it all together, highlighted the most significant points and familiarized us with the content and capacities of specific volleyball programs. They also described the areas of competency of statisticians in teams. For me personally, as a coach who was not familiar with those programs in such detail, it greatly enriched my knowledge in this field. It has become more clear, what principles the analytical work is based on, what is important to highlight when analyzing the opponent and the actions of your team. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who took part in the development and teaching of this course.
Thank you so much for the information provided throughout the course. It was presented in great detail, in a very clear and professional manner. At each lesson, I discovered something new. There is no doubt the knowledge I gained will help me grow as a novice trainer, and correctly assess the work of all the staff. I learned a lot of details that I simply never paid attention to. Now I understand that the right team of professionals is one of the keys to the positive result. Thank you again for the professional, clear presentation of the material. D. Maryukhnich, D. Sosnin, V. Alekno - thank you very much and I wish you success in your work. Sincerely, Denis Kalinin.
