Inspirational Sayings
from 

Courtney Thompson


"I've always felt I'm here to do something special. I know I can do it. Not to sound cocky or anything but that doesn't mean I never doubted myself. "

-Courtney Thompson


There are always moments when I say "Are you kidding me am I really doing this? But I always felt like I could. "

-Courtney Thompson


"For girls naturally in today's society confidence is the biggest problem.

Either they don't have any or they don't have the right kind or they aren't  secure...or they think they need to be 'this" because so and so says so or whatever...

-Courtney Thompson


As a girl being on a team (or if you are just playing the sport) it teaches you those lessons before you are out in the real world. 

It teaches you how to work for something...it teaches so many things..."


-Courtney Thompson

Inspirational Sayings
from 

Sarah Wilhite


“My mental game was not very strong,” 

“At the beginning, I was beating myself up over it. There was a lot of pressure that I put on myself through that, [pressure] about performing and meeting expectations.”

-Sarah Wilhite


“I had to go through those experiences [of not playing] to figure it out,” Wilhite said. 

“The huge shift for me was getting rid of the fear and pressures, and just being able to focus on the actual technique. Whereas if I would have played right away, I don’t know if I would have seen that barrier.”

-Sarah Wilhite

Inspirational Sayings
from 

Krista Vansant


“Honestly, I feel like I am still working on it. I think it is something that can always be improved.            

Jim (Jim McLaughlin, former Washington Huskies coach) always says the mind is the athlete, the body is just the means, so I am just learning to control my mind and control my thoughts in order for me to perform better.” 


-Krista Vansant


“I think it just goes back to mental toughness and knowing how to talk myself through games, knowing what to say to myself so I don’t start thinking negatively. I’ve learned to play outside myself and just let my instincts come. 

I think it’s just mental toughness and preparation for each match.” 

-Krista Vansant

Famous Volleyball Quotes 
Destinee Hooker


I stay focused under pressure by 

1. Praying

2. Always looking to my teammates

"I think a lot of athletes feel like you have to be looking at the coach..when in reality the coach is not on the court with you. 

So its better to stay together as a team.               A lot of athletes are known to drift away in their own little islands as people say. But its better to stay together and Be Positive!

Fake it to make it." 

-Destinee Hooker.                                                       USA Volleyball, Olympic Silver Medalist
