Junior Girls Mustangs Volleyball
- Be present. Similar to being attentive - when you are at practice or a game BE there 100%, no distractions.
- Be a student athlete - be successful in your classes. This is not grade point, this is effort, this is having your work done and being present and never late!
- Be a fun loving player. Always have fun while learning the game of volleyball. Know it is hard work and that you will receive constant feedback on things to improve upon.
- Be a student of the game. Watch competitive volleyball, attend University or College matches, find games on YouTube to watch, do it a team mate. Read blogs about competitive volleyball and how to get better.
- Be a positive team member.
- Be a great practice player! Make full use of practice time. Remember practice is important, but practice with proper technique is as important because Practice makes Permanent.
- Be involved in other sports. Play other sports, but make volleyball your number #1 sport and enjoy the others. Become a volleyball player who plays other sports. If you were to pick up one thing this summer that you don’t presently do, get a ball and glove and practice catching and throwing, even pretending to be a baseball pitcher.
- Be an athlete who gives back to their community by volunteering.

- Feet to ball.
- Legs and arms power through at same time.
