A new sport has become part of the family……..middle school volleyball!  I LOVE IT!  Such a great sport to watch and proud of my girl for making the team!  I am still trying to figure out how to photograph this sport because it is action packed but I will get it….

and I am trying to figure out the rules of this game.  I thought she was wearing the wrong color jersey because hers did not match only to find out she is the “Libero”

The volleyball libero is a defensive specialist position in indoor volleyball.  The libero remains in the game at all times and is the only player not limited by rules of rotation. He usually replaces the middle blocker position when they rotate to the back row and never rotates to the front row himself.  The libero is chosen by the team before the match or tournament and that designated player must remain the libero for the entire match or tournament.  The libero is responsible for a great deal of the passing in serve receive. Often the libero will be responsible for a much greater part of the court than his teammates. The libero is in the game to add ball control, so his main responsibility is to pass the ball well so the team can run the offense. On defense the libero needs to dig well, getting a hand on every ball he can to keep the play alive. Since the libero has no attack responsibilities, he must chase down every ball he can. He may also be responsible for setting if the ball is dug by the setter or out of the setter’s range.”

Who even knew that existed? So fun to watch!

She has lots to work on but she loves it.  I too have lots to learn to follow the game.  Love that she is giving it a go!

Sometimes the hardest part of the journey is simply believing you’re worthy of the trip.  And you are!  You are worth it.  Tattoo that right onto your brain… Seriously!  The world starts to respond when you believe that about yourself.  It doesn’t always look like you thought it would, but positive shifts begin to take place when you start to recognize and acknowledge your own self-worth.”
