Volleyball doesn’t receive near the publicity of swimming, track, or basketball. Volleyball is underrated in schools and communities, it’s even underrated in the Olympics. Volleyball is such a great team sport. It doesn’t just involve one person. One person isn’t enough. Everyone has to work together, there’s a lot of communication and to win, you have to have spirit and energy you bring to the court. Which is why its such a good sport. It can bring people together. Many people think volleyball is easy, however, it’s not as easy as it looks. It takes dedication, hard work, practice, and teamwork. This sport takes so much quickness and jumping. Half of it is a mental game. If you’ve ever played this sport then you would know that they’re not just hitting the ball around like they do in gym. Volleyball isn’t an easy sport which is why shouldn’t be underrated. It should be appreciated like any other sport. Overall volleyball can bring many people together because it requires more than one person, every person counts. In reality, I think volleyball is underrated and that it should be just as appreciated as any other sport.
