Joop Alberda  

Versatile Coach

Joop Alberda became famous as the coach of the Dutch golden volleyballteam at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Under his inspirational leadership the Dutch golden volleyballteam seized the highest price in sports in a memorable match against Italy, which was later proclaimed one of the greatest Dutch sports moments of the century. A year later the Dutch Olympic Committee and the Dutch Sports Federation (NOCNSF) asked Alberda to make preparations for Sydney 2000. As NOCNSF's technical director he became a member of the 'Team de mission' for Sydney 2000, Salt Lake City 2002 and Athens 2004. He was responsible for the innovation of technical programs, the Olympic Coach Platform and technical training aspects of the preparation for the Olympics. He left NOC*NSF in 2005 to establish NL Coach, a 'union' for coaches.

Alberda had an almost unprecedented ability to motivate athletes to exhibit their best performances with unexpected and remarkable statements. A real visionary, adored by his athletes who where extremely disappointed after he announced leaving NOC*NSF.

Alberda is technical director at the Dutch Volleyball Alliance, NeVeBo, and, at the request of Guus Hiddink, general manager at the Russian Football Federation (soccer), where he is responsible for managing the Russian national team.

Joop Alberda is a passionate and motivated speaker on team building, leadership, innovation and management.
