In Part 1 you could learn “How to organize TIME-OUT”, while in Part 2, Castellani explained “What is the best moment to call for TIME-OUT”.

It is time for the Part 3 in which you will find out what a „Quick analysis on TIME-OUT“ should look like from the points of view of an Argentine expert.

It is crucial to be able to intervene efficiently, to understand the essence of what is happening during the game. My primary task is to identify the problem of that moment by detecting collective and individual needs and problems. There may be many issues: technical, technical-tactical or mental, too much pressure, little energy, lack of responsibility, assuming the responsibility of the other player, that we are fine, we keep doing what we’re doing, patience. The analysis must be brief and very concise, to give a quick and clear picture of what is happening.

In general, I prefer to try to talk about general and individual tactics and attitude and avoid to discuss on individual technique as much as possible. Talking about individual technique is an introspective activity: how are your arms positioned while you block, or your legs while you receive. What I am trying to propose is to talk about how to beat the other team and when you need to stretch out your arms over the net to make a block.

I can talk about tactics in general (the key of the game is to keep reception high when number 3 and number 7 serve) or I can talk one-on-one with the player (Ricardo, they are trying to beat you: either solve it or lose it). I can stand in front of a player and speak bluntly with him of what’s going on, but without judging him („it’s your fault“), simply observing what’s happening on the floor.

Next, PART 4: „Previous elaboration of clear ideas“.
