PROVIDING GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT IN THE SPORT OF VOLLEYBALL
July 16, 2015
More and more it is hard to find players who sweat joy and appreciation of being with other players who they call 'their team'. Whether that team is for the day or for a season or for a multi year duration, the moments shared with that group will not be forgotten.
Can you remember all the gifts you received for Christmas 2 years ago? How about one year ago? Last birthday? Most likely your answer is no you can't remember. Monetary gifts are easily forgotten. Monetary gifts don't feed our soul. So often after a loss or a challenging situation, players will revert back to something of monetary value to supplement their need for resolve. (cell phone, movie, food, shopping, computer, tv). Those things do kill time and in return after some time the player is supplemented enough to move on however a true resolve never really happened. Thus the potential success of the team is halted. Resolve through communication and action is imperative. As your season begins, my encouragement to you is to reffer back to your team for celebrations, conflict resolution, That word US should be at the top of your priority. Trust that you are where you are supposed to be. Trust that this group of players you train beside all season will remain in your heart for as many birthdays and christmas' you go through. Give your largest effort toward bettering this special group you are a part of. Your team is a gift. One of the greatest you will be given. A gift you will never forget...your teammates...your TEAM!
"When people come together and set aside their individual needs for the good of the whole they can accomplish what might have looked impossible on paper. It is worth the effort. It gives people a sense of connection." Patrick Lencioni
