Introduction

Congratulations!  Your team has been selected by the United States Olympic Committee to try out as the official coaching staff for the women's volleyball team!  Besides bringing glory to the United States women's volleyball team, you will have countless endorsements and rewarding job offerings after the tournament is over.  

But wait...you can't just stroll in and coach an Olympic sport....you and your coaching staff need to work together to create a practice plan which includes fundamental skill development, offensive and defensive strategies, and conditioning.

By the end of this Webquest, your team will present a PowerPoint to the United States Olympic Committee demonstrating you have a solid understanding of volleyball that will lead the US women’s' volleyball team to win a gold medal.  Pack your bags and get ready for Rio!
