1) We win as a team and we lose as a team. There is no finger pointing.
2) The effort we put out during practice has a correlation to how we will play during game day.
3) Learning and improving one’s volleyball skills comes at a different pace for all players. Being patient and providing positive feedback to all players is a must.
4) There are moments in volleyball when there is neither a right way nor a wrong way. All one can do is try and make the best effort to succeed.
5) Play with intensity; play with intelligence; be aggressive; and have fun
6) Be respectful to your teammates, to your opponents, to the officials, to the spectators, to coaches and to your parents
