2. At each of my Talks, I was able to stay afterward and watch the practices of each program - The Hawaiian teams focus on ball control within the scrimmage environment; maximizing touches without having to have a coach implement every ball for the player to touch. This is a tough concept for many mainland coaches (mainland = continental USA) to use because it can mean ugly practices early and too many coaches, myself included in this group, don't want to watch ugly early practices/trainings.
3. Just a visual to send all of my VolleyFamilies into the weekend - There is just something magical about Hawaii; it is my definition of Paradise.
