How to be a VOLLEYBALL Supahstah!

by Mey Morales


1. Look Good

To be a Supastah you have to make people drawn to you, and the best thing to do is to prettify (if there is such a word) yourself, so when you're out there in the court, even if you are "not that good" in volleyball, keri lang, kasi you still look AH - MEY - ZING! ;-)

Confidence is one of the factors to be a good volleyball player, it's also a powerful attractant, by looking good your confidence level increases as well.
yun oh! ang pretty daw???! hehe

2. Stay Cool, Calm and Collected

Be cool, calm and collected though you feel otherwise, more so, after seeing how your opponent striked to spike the ball and BOOM!!!

Don't fall into that trap girl... RELAX!

Even if you think that the ball will hit your face any minute soon, you still have to maintain an air of effortlessness. The best players are the ones who can make everything look effortless.
anyare? eportlessss???

3. Take HAPPY pictures with the Team

Not only that the photo serves as a remembrance when you look back on the things you did after 88 years, it also goes to show how happy you are with the team, and kahit na you're not really included in the picture, umepal ka lang sa tabi, it will still show that you're one with them.

Most people engage in sports due to the fun and enjoyment of playing. If you are having fun in the game and your team, you will be enthusiastic to train and play. Teamwork, a massively important factor of success in volleyball.


4. Get a COACH

To be a volleyball supahstah you must get a coach. A coach that will train your visual skills, concentration and ability to move effectively.

How?

The coach will wear the ultimate PEKPEK shorts, yung tipong sa sobrang iksi mapupulmonya na yung kuyukot nya, by doing so, you’ll  be able to learn not to be distracted by anything (kahit dumidilim ang paningin mo) just mind the ball. Focus. Focus. Focus. Improve your ability to focus and ignore any distractions, you'll be able to play better volleyball.


5. Give your Best

When you're on the court, be the best that you can be at all times. Treat every game like the last game of your life, release all your worries, fears, concerns and doubts, no matter how tough your opponent can be, just give your best shot and show your true potential.

A volleyball supahstah knows how to attack, as ATTACK is the most spectacular skill in volleyball. So if you wanna see an attack mode, panigurado hindi eto yun.       



6. Play Hard

Play hard but don't play too hard. Don't overdo it, the key is BALANCE then just enjoy the game.

To be a volleyball supahstah you need to send over tough serves that stay in bounds to help your team. 
(the photograph below illustrates tough service... RAWRRR! LOL)

Service is the cornerstone of quality play for a  volleyball player, kaya bigay todo na and gandahan ang serving kasi it may be your last...
Me: bola, pasok ka naman pleaseeeeeee....!


7. Support

See, I told you, hataw na ng bonggang-bonga sa service kasi nga yun na ang una't huli..

After a minute of playing inside the court and the coach asked you to sit on the bench for the entire duration of the game, (yung tipong kakapasok mo palang sa laro pinalabas ka na agad) don't be upset. When that happens, rather than being dismayed, might as well have an active participation while on the bench. Being unhappy can be detrimental to your team, so just boost your team's morale, keep a positive vibes and have fun.
kakapasok lang, labas agad? basag ako dun ah...

8. Never Quit

If you didn't win any single game in the tournament, NEVER LOSE HOPE. Just continue doing what you have started, find people who have the same passion as yours and recruit them to help you. Achieving goal begins with passion, passion fuels drive, so be driven to act with passion, you may not realize all that you have to offer at present, but sooner or later, you can start a movement that will change the world! (Wow oh! Ang Bigat! Movement to change the world agad? nde ba pwedeng kulang lang sa praktis kaya nde nanalo?)

Taken from the famous American Creed, "The most important thing is not winning, but taking part in the game." If you didn't win the first time, there's always a second or third or fourth and more! As long as you are alive you have the choice to keep trying until you succeed. 


9. Practice

Practice with your team mates at least twice or thrice a week or as much as possible to improve your skills.

Don't just sit in front of the TV all day, practice and get some exercise.
Don't just stand there in the court... Practice!
Don't just do pa-cute pose... Practice!
Don't just text... Practice!
Don't just hold the ball... Practice!

By practicing the "right way" you'll be able to achieve your maximum performance and play better.


10. Ambition, Motivation and Determination

To live life fully, you gotta have ambition or something that you really want to accomplish. Your ambition will be your motivation or your driving force to work towards your goal. Together with motivation is your determination or your decision to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals.
  
Recipe for Success: Ambition, Motivation and Determination.

With all of these attitudes combined you'll be a volleyball supahstah in no time.  ;-)

Ansaaavheeeh sa mga posing???!



PS

Always treat yourself right, one way to do that is to be healthy and when it comes to your HEALTH don't be lazy even if you are busy. No matter what sports you choose, be it volleyball, basketball or soccer???

Remember that your ultimate goal is to be physically, emotionally and mentally healthy.

Sports. More fun in Quezon City!
