” Breath, believe, and battle. My former coach, Troy Tanner, told us that before every match. Breathe – be in the moment. Believe – have faith that you can rise above it. Battle – you gotta be prepared to go for as long as it takes.”

– Kerri Walsh – Beach Volleyball Player

” Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them; a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.

– Muhammad Ali

Libero

This player is the one wearing the different colored jersey and can be substituted in for any player in the back row. The libero cannot rotate into the front row. The addition of the libero has added an extra dimension of back row defense, improved serve-receive, helped lengthen rallies, and given a vital role to shorter players.
