3 Failures That Can Create Better Volleyball Players

We all make mistakes and failures in our lives, it’s only humans that we do. What’s important is that we learn and grow from these failures and come back stronger from them. In the sport of volleyball, the same guidelines apply. There are a ton of different failures that a player can make while playing but it’s important for players to understand that these failures can create better volleyball players. Relentless Volleyball Club wants to provide three examples of failures that can produce better volleyball players.

Failure 1: Compete Against a Higher Skill Level

You may have heard the saying “You have to play the best to become the best”. This couldn’t be more true. When you play a team from a higher skill level, you get to see and learn about things you and your teammates may not be doing correctly. You’ll get to see what type of connections the opponents have and how they rely on one another to win each match they play. 

No one like to lose but sometimes it results in the best learning experience. While it might hurt to lose, it’s important to take away key reasons why it happened so you and your team can grow from it. 

When your team comes across a failure like this, it’s important to:

  • Discuss how the other team succeeded and how it affected you and your team.
  • Take notes on what you learned from the match.
  • Focus on what will make your team better. Don’t try to exactly replicate what the other team did.

Failure 2: Adapt or Lose

Anytime your team enters the court for a match, you’re all ready to battle and win. The other team is also thinking the same thing. As the match goes on, you both trade blows back and forth until the other team uses a new play to take the lead. 

This can hurt the team morale but these are the opportunities where you and your team can learn the most. There are a lot of different things that make competing in sports amazing with one of them being the mental solitude needed to win. This is a failure that can mean your team needs to change the way it plays.

Failure 3: Trial and Error

We aren’t born knowing how to speak or walk. We keep attempting it until we get it right. The same thing can be said for volleyball. You don’t know how to serve or set the ball just by stepping on the court. It takes countless amount of tries before you get it right. You don’t know if something will work unless you try it. Your next serve may not go as planned, but eventually, you’ll get it right.

This type of failure is very effective for improving your game. Every error you make is an opportunity to learn and grow from it. Just because something didn’t work, doesn’t mean you should give up.
