The single greatest effect on performance is an athlete’s state of mind
Youth sports used to be about children competing against other children; now it is often adults competing against other adults through their children
Children play sports because it is fun; winning comes in way down the list
Children quit sports when they don’t get to play, and when winning becomes more important than enjoyment
90% of children would rather play on a losing team than sit the bench on a winning team
Competition is important, but being competitive comes from putting the needs and priorities of our children first
We can all start changing youth sports for the better by learning five simple words (watch to learn what they are)

Many factors are at play in shattering athletic records, and the development of our natural talents is just one of them.

Who says you have to be 6′ + to be an effective hitter? I was listening to an interview of Terry Liskevych on The Art of Coaching Volleyball and heard that he, Russ Rose, and John Dunning all believe she was the best attacker ever in volleyball. Oh, Mireya is only 5’9″. Granted she had exceptional jumping ability, touching over 11′, yes 11’! I had to see her for myself and through the power of the internet, here she is (quite impressive for sure):

Ever thought about quitting? How about coming back from an ACL, MCL, and Meniscus tear? She has some loving parents and incredibly strong support. Amazing what love will do.

Great highlights from the first ever NCAA Division III Men’s Volleyball National Championships. Springfield College vs. Carthage College.
Check out the 6:00 minute mark when Angel Perez crushes a tandem. One of the best volleyball swings I’ve seen in a championship match.
