The present study was performed to clarify how a novice volleyball player was able to obtain a sense of having performed well in the volleyball dig after learning the technique. For this purpose, the process of coaching an individual female volleyball player (“player A”) was analyzed from the viewpoint of phenomenological movement theory. Player A was a member of a junior high school volleyball team and had played volleyball since elementary school. Therefore, she was not a complete beginner. To improve player A’s skill at digging, the coach first focused on the movement and sensation of her upper body, arms and shoulders. This approach was quite helpful for conveying the sensation of playing well, but only temporarily. After attempting this approach, the coach instructed player A on how to use her lower body, legs and especially the hip joints. This resulted in an improvement of digging performance and the player’s subjective sensation changed. These findings indicate that a sense of bending the hip joint encouraged player A to feel that her arms fell down naturally and placed under the ball, enabling her to obtain a sense that she had made a successful dig. This also revealed an important perspective of coaching for beginners who have little experience and “kinästhese” hylē.
