This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter, features high-performance coach Alan Stein. If you’re looking to improve at any area of your life — beach volleyball, basketball, investing, parenting, ANYTHING — this is a gold mine of information.

Stein, a former basketball teammate of Adam Roberts’ at Elon University, is the author of the book, Raise Your Game, and its principles are invaluable. We discuss many of them on the podcast, along with:

– How working with Kobe Bryant, and his ability to “never get bored with the basics” changed Stein’s life

– The value of doing work in “the unseen hours” that results in championships

– The tricky balance of focusing on recovery vs. getting extra reps

– Why confidence must be earned

And so, so much more.
