The importance of the act of writing epitomizes the meaning of coaching. Good volleyball coaches write their lesson plans, practice plans, and their reflections so he/she can document and improve his/her praxis. The purpose of this article is to disseminate an important volleyball resource for volleyball players, coaches, administrators, parents, and scholars. This book, 21st Century Volleyball Expertise, represents the most current information on modern volleyball. It is a simple but meaningful book that addresses multiple issues of the utmost relevance for our volleyball community in this 21st Century. Dr. Gylton Da Matta and other collaborators from around the world presented several subjects concerning elite training for volleyball athletes.

The chapters and their authors are detailed in Figure 2.
