The Beautiful Game Of Volleyball Serves Up Many Of Life's Lessons.
For years, many Canadians have looked upon volleyball as a peripheral sport for the "not quite gifted enough," or the "play it safe" athlete.
Not good enough to excel in basketball. Not macho, or aggressive enough, to make it in hockey, or football.
But peoples' perceptions are changing. It won't all happen overnight, but gradually, more and more Canadians are appreciating the athleticism, focus and co-ordination volleyball demands of its top athletes.
To delve deeper into the many positives volleyball can offer the young athlete, we summoned the knowledge of some of this continent's volleyball stars, including players, coaches and executives.
This is what they had to say.
