Why Do I Love Volleyball?
Everyone's favourite...nothing feels better than cramming a ball to the ground over a block or six packing an opponent. Middle is my position and has been since I started, definitely the best hitting position in my opinion because I can run quicks and step arounds.
Blocking used to be something I really struggled with getting my timing on, but now that I've improved I'm loving it more and more.
I've really had to challenge myself with my digging and work on faster foot movement and getting behind the ball. I hope that I can eventually pass as good as a Libero (back row specialist.)
Why Has Volleyball Taught Me?
Trust. I've had to trust my teammates and their abilities.
Perseverance. I have to give 100% effort at all times.
Self discipline. My coaches can only help me so much, it's up to me to put in the work.
Leadership. Being the player that brings a team up and encourages everyone.
Communication. Effective communication is the key to volleyball.
Quick thinking. Volleyball is played at a very fast pace and you have to be ready to move and adjust.
