WHY DO YOU LOVE VOLLEYBALL?

Volleyball is truly one of the few sports where you can't rely on just one person to carry the team. It takes everyone on the court to do their job to win each point and it takes everyone on the sideline to keep the momentum going. It is truly a team sport and it take hard work, communication, and perseverance from everyone in order to be successful. As a coach I model that having a positive attitude and the willingness to work hard and learn can also be used off the court as well.
