12 Self Confidence Quotes and 4 Ways To Build Confidence
There are five things that I teach and/or do here in Las Vegas in my Volleyball Voice Boot Camp classes and lessons which aim to build confidence among our players on and off the court.
You need the experience of playing a lot. Play, play and play.
One thing, I can tell you is that it takes experience to improve.
Playing a lot of volleyball helps you gain confidence because you start seeing the same things happen on the court over and over again.
When you get used to the other team serving you over and over again, or hitting at you over and over again then after a while the newness wears off and you get used to having the ball come at you hard and fast.
The second thing that builds confidence in volleyball players is doing hundreds of repetitions of a skill.
Its true, practice makes perfect.
In practice, doing a skill over and over again hundreds of times, correctly, helps you build confidence .
Let me add, you have to practice the way you would play in a game.
In my practices, I don't talk for hours to my players. It's super important that the players get hundreds and hundreds of quality reps and touches so they build confidence on being able to control the ball.
Answer this question....
Are you going to be ready and confident to play a game if you've touched a ball 30 times in 10 ten minutes or 300 times in three minutes?
You have to practice the way you would play in a game.
Remember you are trying to gain confidence on the court, so if in practice you play at 30% effort, then in a game you wont know how to play at 100% effort because you haven't practiced at 100% effort.
You will play at 30% of your effort because that's what you have taught your body to do.
If you play at 30% effort and you are surrounded by players who are going harder giving their 100% effort I can guarantee you, you will be substituted out of the game.
A team is effective when everyone on it is giving their maximum effort. If you aren't, that doesn't build your personal confidence but even worse it doesn't build confidence among the teammates who play with and rely on you.
You need to treat your volleyball practice as if you were playing a match. Every ball matters, every effort matters, every movement matters, every effort that you give....matters.
Its not just the skill you are practicing but your "effort" your "concentration" your "focus"..this is what develops a stronger mental game for you.
You want to build confidence?
The only thing that matters in practice is what the coach is saying and the ball.
Practicing with this high level of
will transfer into how you compete and play in your games.
Another thing I coach my players on a lot..is the importance of communication on the court.
Talking about what's going on the court helps build confidence because it forces you to tell yourself and others what you see going on and what action is taking place.
First, this keeps you in the present which means you can't think about past mistakes while you are thinking and talking about what is going on in the present.
Talking on the court keeps you out of your own head and focused on the ball and the action as it happens. .
Talking on the court keeps you out of your own head and from thinking too much.
Your teammates need to hear from you and by talking and letting them hear your voice during each volleyball action builds confidence among you and the other five people playing on your court.
