Volleyball Lessons in Pictures – Learning by Teaching

The following photo collections are lessons in pictures. Each of the following collections features pictures taken by Gary Horvath with commentary by Ana and Allyson Horvath. Much of their commentary is based on knowledge gained from instruction by Trisha Kroll and Jenn Pritchard (along with other coaches).  By providing the commentary Ana and Allyson were presented with an opportunity to experience “learning by teaching.” Through the processing of explaining/teaching the technique they gained a better understanding about how to be better setters.
