WHY DO YOU LOVE VOLLEYBALL?

I love the game because of the passion and intensity it brings. I have seen an intense passion and love for this game from kids who just started the game, to the young adults who have been playing for years. I love watching athletes confidence build as they continue to grow with the game. You can learn so much from the game, building your strengths and pushing yourself to be the best athlete and person you can be. This game helped me grow and kept me on the right path from when I was in high school to coaching and being a role model. I learned so much from my coaching and teammates that I use in every day life and I hope to help other young athletes reach their full potential in the game and apply to their lives in the future.
