To play a VOLLEYBALL GAME

Step 1: Have a Burning Motivation 


If you want to become a professional volleyball player for the money or fame. You need to have the sort of drive and passion where playing at a top level matters more to you than getting paid top money. To have the sort of grit and determination to get through all the stresses, downs and pressures of playing professionally, you need to have a true love for the game or you’ll just end up being very unhappy.




Step 2: Train 10,000 Hours (or more)


Recent studies have found that the key to success in any field is practicing a specific task for a total of around 10,000 hours. Therefore, a player must train and/or play volleyball for at least 10,000 hours before reaching ‘world class’ status. That’s around 3 hours a day, 20 hours a week for 10 years.




Step 3: Train Smart


Training smart is as equally important, if not more important than training hard. In team trainings, you follow what the coach wants the team to do, but not what you need to train as an individual player. Each player has their own unique set of skills, which is why it’s extremely important to train on your own or with small groups, so you can improve your specific weaknesses and make your strengths, second nature.




Step 4: Believe You Can Achieve 


Coaches saying you’re not good enough, making mistakes and players yelling and screaming at you. This is an everyday occurrence in volleyball and you must have a deep belief to get you through all the negativity you’ll encounter. That belief has to come from somewhere. I belief in the formula that belief + hard work (and smart work) + persistence = success. To become a professional volleyball player, you need to the sort of belief where you believe you can move mountains.


Step 5: Create a Killer Video 


A promo video of yourself these days in the modern age of high-speed internet and YouTube is essential to getting as much interest as possible. If you have a good video that makes it easy for people to assess your skills, it’s easier to get opportunities with teams. Get family or friends to film you training and playing and make sure the video quality is excellent.




Step 6: Create a Great CV


Just like applying for a job, a volleyball CV should be able to explain to a coach – or club, agent… – all about who you are as a player, in less than a minute. Include a player photo, height/weight, positions, experience, links to articles you’ve been featured in and statistics.




Step 7: Find Opportunities


Now that you have the skills and the tools, you have to find ways to show off your talent. Here are a few ways to find opportunities:Consider getting a volleyball agent, however many agents can be very deceiving, so be careful.


– Some players have famously been accepted into team work
