Whether it’s Instagram, Twitter, or even TikTok, social networks continue to grow in popularity – especially when it comes to sports.
When Facebook launched in 2004, many coaches were opposed to players spending their free time scrolling through websites and apps, or sending out random thoughts and pictures.
Today, however, coaches are beginning to see benefits when it comes to recruiting, education and more.
Here are some influential social media accounts for volleyball coaches and players to follow:
