With the rising popularity of this sport, it is not surprising that a lot of young girls nowadays want to be part of this sport. Aside from this is a great physical activity so they can stay active and in shape, it is also great in developing new circles and your strategic thinking skills.
Also, it is one of the sports that offer collegiate scholarships making it enticing for young people to engage in this kind of sport. However, it is not easy to be a great player. There are so many things that you have to consider before deciding if this is a sport for you.
Discipline is a basic need in any sport. You will need to adhere to strict training schedule that sometimes will affect your personal life. You will have to train whatever the season is because if you rest even for just a week, it will affect your performance.
Also, you will need to follow strict diet regimen. To be honest, most of the required food that you will need to eat are not that tasty and palatable but you still need to eat them for you to be able to build muscles and at the same time, store energy for the competition.
Also, this is not a solo sport. It doesn’t matter if you are good individually. Unlike in basketball or other sports where a lone player can actually carry the game, in volleyball, teamwork will make you win. You need to be able to know when to take the lead and at the same time, when you will trust your team mates.
Your focus during the training up until the competition will set you apart from other players. You need to avoid distractions so you can only focus on the prize. This is important especially for those who are looking for a potential player that they can develop. It is hard to find new athletes who have great focus in what they are doing that’s why as early as now, practice hard so you can focus on the game harder.
