Volleyball is like going to church ... many attend, but few understand.
Never back down, never fear anyone, for the best opponents will help you to play your best.
There are three choices in life and sport - either you do it, you don't do it or you think about it. Most humans think about it. We will do it.
Coaching is something that takes place only when learning does. No matter what you are doing in your practices, if your players are not learning something significant, you're really not coaching. If a player fails in a game, the coach may have failed in practice.
Never mishandle hope or self-confidence - those are elements of life, not just a game.
You cannot turn your winning attitude on when you think you 'need it.' You must work on it every day, every practice, every match - win or lose. Focus on playing to win, not playing to lose, for there is a season of difference between the two.
The pessimistic coach complains about the play. The optimistic coach expects it to change. The realistic coach adjusts what he can control.
Good players win volleyball games for you, not tall players.
The sport of volleyball will never give you something that you can't handle; whether you do handle it is another question.
Play your heart out each game, so you can look your teammates in the eyes and ask, without saying it, 'I played full out, did you?'
In volleyball there are many reasons for errors but not a single excuse.
Less effort in this game makes more results.
Volleyball rules are simple. If it is on the floor, pick it up and get it into the air. If it is in the air, keep it off the floor.
Profit by your own mistakes and profit by the mistakes of others. The referees were calling ball handling violations like they were getting commissions.
No jockey ever won a race by carrying the horse across the finish line; no coach ever won a volleyball match by touching the ball during play.
If you are serious about volleyball, the only months to stop playing are those without a vowel.
There is no such thing as 'staying in shape;' you either work to get better, or you allow yourself to get worse.
Work hard - beat out half the team. Be committed, play fair as a team player - Beat out another quarter of the team. The last quarter is your desire and beliefs, and where you are playing.
Most of us are referees at heart; we like to call throws and errors on someone else.
Most volleyball players are made in the winter, spring and summer, for come fall, everyone practices equal time.
Shared victory is a double victory, shared defeat is half-defeat.
Focus on winning the contest with yourself.
Coaches must be flexible, for then they won't get bent out of shape.
Alter strategies and tactics, but never your principles.
Trying simply provides an excuse for not doing.
