This post is part of our college series to help you(players) understand the transition from high school to college.What was it like for Natalie and Alyssa (UNLV VB) making the transition to college volleyball.
Here are key points from the video. What are some of the things that many happen to you as a player when going to college:
- The coach may change your mechanics, form, serve — just about everything. The results, I was a much better player. You really need to trust your coach and buy into the program. For me as a player, it made a huge difference in my performance and effectiveness as an outside hitter.
- In college, the commitment level is much higher (6 days a week) versus 2-3 days per week in high school/club. You will live and breathe volleyball. Its a full time job. This is why its critical that you are PASSIONATE about volleyball.
- Find your role – In college, all the players were all state, all region players. You need to find your role on the team. As a Freshman, its key to listen, learn and compete. The only stat that matters is – WIN. No one cares about your personal stats. Its all about the team.
- What are you doing to prepare yourself for college volleyball?
Are you training, becoming a student of the game.
