I play volleyball because it is exciting, a good workout, you make gobs of friends, and it is something amazing to do after school.

It helps me make me the person that I am by giving me amazing friendships and social skills.

My favotie aspect of being a volleyball player is that you make friends, you get the title of an athlete and you get the cool sign to put in the front yard.

I play volleyball because i really love the feel of the game. I have made a ton of friends no matter how many differences we have were all still friends. These are the friends i know i can trust and i cant wait to get to know each of them a little more!

I really love being called an athlete. Everyone can be a volleyball player but not everyone can br on the team!

I play volleyball because it’s a team sport. You learn to trust your teammates. In swimming it is just me and the water, I have no real connection with anyone but in volleyball I have to rely on other people.

I play volleyball because I love it. I really love to play, and I love the compitition. Also it is great to have so many friends from current and previous teams.

It helps make me the person that I am because I have really learned teamwork, and gave me amazing friends like Cat said.

My favorite aspect of being a volleybal player is just getting to play volleyball. I love the friendships, and how it makes me such a better athlete. Like Cat said also, the sign rocks!

I play volleyball cause i love the feeling after i've gotten a hit and we won the point! The sign in front of your house and the spandex makes it even more worth it. Only problem is when ugly guys stare at your butt and sometimes try to slap it hahahaha!

It helps me make awsome friends and have better talking skills also I like watching and learning other things from other players!

My fav aspect of volleyball and being a player is the name of being an athlete and not being part of the croud that cheers us on but being there playing the game andcheering yourself and others on!
GO WARRIORS! HUGH!!!!!!

I play volleyball because it such a fun sport, and you get to play with and make great friends who share the same interests as you.

Volleyball helps me to become the person that I am because it lets me be with my friends and it helps me to become more time managing and organized.

My favorite aspect of being a volleyball player is that I get to play the sport I love, be with great friends who love the sport too, and you get to brag about being an athlete at AHS

Volleyball means alot to me because its a chance to get away and do something i love. Its that one thing i can turn to when things get rough. The feeling i get when the season starts is indescribable. All the time,sweat,energy and commitment we put into volleyball is more than satisifing in the end. Its like, the more we put in, the more we get out of it in the end. Im excited to play for arapahoe and im looking foward to a great season with yall.

AS ERIN, ONE OF YOUR TEAMATES, I HAVE SET (LIKE ALL OF YOU) SOME PERSONAL GOALS FOR MYSELF. THEY INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:

1. THAT I LEARN HOW TO DO VOLLEYBALL WAY BETTER SO I CAN MAKE THE TEAM NEXT YEAR AND CONTINUE UNTIL SENIOR YEAR. I MAINLY WANT TO DO THIS BECAUSE IN ORDER TO PLAY VOLLEYBALL THIS YEAR I GAVE UP BOTH SOFTBALL AND ACTING. THAT IS HOW MUCH I LOVE THE SPORT AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO PLAY IT.
2. I ALSO, BY THE END OF THE YEAR, WOULD LIKE TO HAVE WON AT LEAST HALF OF OUR GAMES. I REALLY, IN THE NAME OF COMPETITIVE SPORTS, WANT TO DOMINATE THE LEAGUE. LIKE SEYERS SAID, LET’S MAKE EVERYONE FEAR US!
3. MY FINAL GOAL, WHCIH WAS ALREADY MET, WAS TO MAKE SOME OF THE COOLEST FRIEND’S ALIVE! YOU GUYS ROCK!

Why I Play Volleyball
I play volleyball for many reasons but the biggest reason is that you actually have a responsibility to a team and everyone is depending on each other, unlike swimming where you are on a team but they could care less about your performance in the water. I absolutely love being a part of a team. I am very excited to see how close our team is already and the season hasn’t even started! (in terms of games)

The other reason why I play volleyball is because it is so exciting and such a good sport!
TO BE CONTINUED

I play volleyballfor many reasons but one of the main reason is because it is one of the many thing I like to do. I also love to meet new people and volleyball makes that happen everyone in the volleyball program is friendly and I cant wait to make more freindships this season.

My favorite aspect of volleyball is the thrill of the game. Our teams energy just effects everyone to the best of their abilites we all have so much energy and I think it will show in our games. I hope we have a great season. Go Fresman A!!!!1
