Volleyball is like going to church ... many attend, but few understand.
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.
Never back down, never fear anyone, for the best opponents will help you to play your best.
The pessimistic coach complains about the play. The optimistic coach expects it to change. The realistic coach adjusts what he can control.
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?'
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.

Kids on a team are like flowers in a bouquet, there is always one that wants to face a different way than the arranger desires.
Think positive, real volleyball happens too fast to think any other way.
The meaning of volleyball, is to give meaning to volleyball, as the meaning of coaching is to give meaning to coaching.
You must allow your players to become the athletes they can be. Don't make them into anything just to become the kind of winners fans, friends and others think they must be.
Study hard, practice hard, play ferociously.
There are two basic situations in volleyball - either you got the ball or you don't.
The wise coach takes all the heat when his players lose, and gives them all the credit when they win.
A coach must sometimes see players with his heart, and hear them with his eyes.
I am here to give my players the little push they need, just like they needed long ago, when first learning the art of the swing. All you needed then was a little push, and quickly you were pumping away, flying higher and higher, without any more help from the 'coach.'
