These quotes from volleyball players who play indoor and beach share their wisdom and lessons learned from volleyball life like
👉🏾me on how to prepare for college your high school senior summer,
👉🏾Alex Jean Glover and body dysmorphia her first year in college followed by self image appreciation with changing body parts,
👉🏾spend a day in the life of a USA collegiate national team athlete like Kate Prior,
👉🏾hear from Pepperdine standout Jaylen Jasper and how good coaching helped him perform better
👉🏾get game day volleyball quotes from Better At Beach Volleyball about pre-game nutrition and healthy food prep recommendations for beach and indoor players
First let me say my two cents first...
Your senior summer before you go to your first year of college as a student athlete… is not the time to have senioritis and to party … you need that summer to prepare yourself
for the increased
👉🏾training workload, 👉🏾time management responsibilities for classes and volleyball
👉🏾competition for playing time,
that everyone faces, male and female when you get to college.
That’s what “next level” means. There’s more to do, there’s more to get ready for, there’s more you need to be able to handle.
If you’re not prepared to do those things during the summer then you’ll be playing catch up for the first 2-3 months of your freshman year.
I post players advising players, warning players, letting players know about what they did or did not do to prepare for a better first year (and succeeding years) experience so if what your parents or your coach is saying is not resonating with you about the need
your high school senior summer … maybe hearing the message from other student-athletes like yourself will help convince you, that there is no shortcut and that it’s better to be ready early than to get ready late.
(Ooh that last part was good 👍🏾 I have to remember that one😂😂)

I want to dedicate this post to my friend!
When I am asked to say who was my best partner on the court, I always proudly name her!
What she does in volleyball causes an absolute feeling of delight and only one question: “how? How is that even possible?”
I have seen her strength at different moments of her life...
when we won, when we lost, during a period of severe injury .... and in each of these moments she was herself!
She was always real, loving what she does, loving people and the whole world!
A person with a big heart and will!
I thank you for giving us all a great gift by returning to the national team and giving the whole world the opportunity to see your talent again!
God bless you my friend!
And no matter how the game develops, you are always a winner!
Love you @daherthaisa ❤️
So cookies and candy bars and “quick” energy drinks with lots of sugar are NOT the best option?
Say it twice! Pleeeeassse and thank you!!
Salads 🥗 or Carbs 🍝 On Tournament Day?!
Fueling your body during tournament days can be tricky. You might get the urge to eat a salad to stay light but are they really fueling your body?!
Sure salads are quick, easy, and simple to digest but getting energy from greens is not as optimal as carbs! Carbs are fuel. Carbs are your friend!
Loads of sugar (processed mainly) can have you crash later in the day/after matches so try eat good carbs such as pastas, sweet potatoes, fruits, and oats.
These will fuel your body and have your performing come match time!

Being “the Boss” is not always easy…
👉🏾peep the podcast
In 17 years, @aprilrossbeach left nothing on the table, and now she’s getting what she calls “down time” — full time coaching and growing a baby.
You don’t become the Boss Ross by not going all out in everything you do.
Full podcast is up on YouTube, Spotify, and everywhere else you listen or watch podcasts! Such a fun chat with one of the best to ever do it 🙌🐐

I share alot of individual, partner and easy-to-do volleyball serving drills we do in class with my followers.
Many of these volleyball practice drills you can do at home by yourself or try at your next practice with your teammates.
If you're a B team or JV player trying to make varsity next year...your goal should be to complete 1000 reps a day of at least three of the basic skills on your own...volleyball passing, serving and setting should be at the top of the list.
