Posted on 08 January 2013 by Chuck Rey

misty may gold medal 13 Volleyball Quotes for 2013 volleyballA recent Inc. article came out with 12 motivational quotes for 2013 (why 12, I don’t know?). So I decided to embark upon a journey to find 13 volleyball quotes for 2013. Unfortunately, it was more difficult than I imagined. Quotes of many of our great coaches and players are scarcely found throughout the internet. Google searches found some poor selections. I literally read through a number of journal articles to find many of these quotes. The task ended up being quite rewarding as I learned a bit through the research. Following are my findings icon wink 13 Volleyball Quotes for 2013 volleyball

1. “Most change is evolutionary, not revolutionary. As we start a new year, let’s find the practicable and ‘celebrate-able'; let’s stay congruent with our messaging, creative in our efficiency, and, most of all, let’s give ourselves new opportunities to dream.” ~ Kathy DeBoer Continue Reading

Yeah, I wish I could get up THAT high and over the net THAT far.

Anyone else notice the Misty May picture in the background when she was a setter for Long Beach State?

Life is too short and precious to be dealt with in any other fashion. This thought I hold dear to my heart, and I always try to be true to myself and others that I encounter along the way.” ~ Flo Hyman

2010 Beach Volleyball Players Championship

Posted on 05 September 2010 by Chuck Rey

kerri walsh brooke hanson 300x225 2010 Beach Volleyball Players Championship volleyballAlthough the AVP has shut down, professional beach volleyball is still in swing.  This past weekend, Cincinnati hosted the 2010 Players Championship at Hahana Beach.  Kerri Walsh joined forces with Brooke Hanson to play against the top ex-AVP players.  Although, they did not win a match, I wonder if the restructuring of professional volleyball, without a point system for rank and qualifying purposes, will better volleyball as a whole?  Will players change partner more frequently?  Or will this decrease the top tier overall play.  In either case, it would have been awesome to see Kerri Walsh play against Misty May this past weekend.

Beach volleyball lives on.  It will never die.

kerri walsh misty may treanor Compelled Athletes volleyballNo matter what obstacles, adversities, or distractions might stand in their way, compelled people are going to find a way.  They won’t rest until they get the job done.  They prepare, train, and compete at the highest level.  This means they never go through the motions or skip workouts, they eat well and get the proper rest, and they take advantage of every opportunity to get better.  Compelled people not only have high expectations of themselves, but of their teammates, too.  They hold themselves and their teammates to a higher standard.
