Why Do I Love Volleyball?

Volleyball is a sport centered around the idea of "team" and working together. It is impossible to succeed in volleyball with only one strong player; a team is only as strong as it's weakest player. The unity involved in this sport is unlike any other and it creates friendships that will last a lifetime. I also love how there is always something to learn, there is no limit to how much you can improve on your passing, setting, serving, hitting and blocking. I love the challenge and how hard I have to push myself.

Why Has Volleyball Taught Me?

Confidence. I have learned that I am capable of anything I set my mind to.

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.
