The Volleyball Quote Volleycats Elite Players Were Most Inspired By, Pt. 1

The most inspiring volleyball quote of 2017, according to my club


One of the coolest gifts I received at the end of the 2017 Volleycats Elite

VBC season was a huge jar filled with slips of paper on which each

player wrote thoughts about their coach, or a testimonial, or a copy of

the volleyball quote they were most inspired by this year. 

I love finding out what inspires a young female high school volleyball

player, that's between the age of 13 - 17. 

That's when a lot of growth and self discovery takes place. Having

coached this age group in Vegas for so long now its awesome to

understand what appeals to them, what motivates them, and see what

sticks as the source of strength and inspiration. 

If these are examples of the quotes that inspired and motivated them in

2017, I'm sure one, a few or many will inspire you too.
