Tuesdays with Mora set to Launch Tuesday, September 18th

Players spend hours training the physical skills of volleyball, and coaches spend hours planning and running training sessions focused on the physical skills. However, that accounts for only 10-20% of what leads to team success. Tuesdays with Mora will focus on developing and training the other 80-90% of the game which is the mental skills and building culture and teamwork. Catch the first video on JVA’s instagram and in the JVA Dig It App Wednesday, September 18th.
