EAGLES VOLLEYBALL TEAM PHILOSOPHY
Hustle, Loyalty, Respect
Volleyball played well is a thing of beauty. Few athletic endeavors require as much teamwork; rarely does a sport reward hard work so completely. Your Eagle coach loves volleyball. I am committed to you as students, as athletes and as young women. It is my goal to provide every opportunity for you to become as good as you want to be. More important, I strive to help you and your teammates become the best team you can be. I intend on setting an example of great sportsmanship.
Put the team before yourself
As an Eagle volleyball player, you agree that the team is paramount. Your individual goals and your team’s goals do not necessarily conflict, but when they do, you accept that decisions are made for the good of the team. Successes are sweeter – setbacks sting less – when they are shared.
Rules help our team run smoothly
Each player must decide if she buys into our system and is willing to commit to this team. Every rule is for the benefit of the team, and you have to decide, in advance, whether you want to follow them. If not, you should not be part of the team.
Our team thrives on trust and respect
You must trust your coach and your teammates, and behave in a way that earns their respect. You must do everything necessary to make yourself and your team better.
Our athletes learn to be coachable
There is often more than one way to do things correctly. In some cases, however, I will select a specific strategy for the benefit of the entire team, even if it may not seem to benefit a particular individual. You must be willing to make changes according to your coach’s suggestions. If the coach seems to be ‘riding’ you, it is usually because I think you are capable of a higher level of performance.
Our team works hard
Everyone wants to win, but few make the sacrifices to do it. No one will give you anything in life, you must earn it. You cannot cut corners.
Our team has balance
To balance academics, athletics, work and family, you must plan ahead and make difficult choices. The choices you make will affect your future opportunities. Choose wisely.
On our team, bench time is playing time
Communication is the key to success. This includes communicating on the volleyball court and outside of volleyball
Our team can be successful
I want you to know that almost any obstacle can be overcome with hard work. Commitment, perseverance and responsibility will be rewarded.
Our team is disciplined and our team passes it on
Discipline is important in all aspects of life. It’s that voice in your head that tells you to do something you don’t want to do but need to do. As you move through high school, share your new skills and insights with new or younger players. Be generous with your time. Be an active and involved.
