Video analysis in volleyball: Actions game / Geneva vs Therwill
For the tenth's day of swiss ladies volleyball championship, Perform'Live filmed the match Geneva vs Therwill. I tagged all actions, did a video replay. With the team and coaches, we watched all highlights that they defined. As you will see on a short analysis of one action of the game, I used 2 video cameras to get the best results and see all details of the match.
I took an extract of this game to show you how you can analyze an action and players built it.
