A study on mental toughness of volleyball players

AUTHOR(S): Vikas
ABSTRACT:
Volleyball, probably the most popular indoor game in the world, is an Olympic sport played in virtually every country. In Holyoke, Massachusetts, (USA), on February 9, 1895, William G. Morgan, a YMCA Physical Education Director, created a new game called "Mintonette" as a pass time to be played indoors. Later in 1896, this game was renamed by Alfred Halsted, an observer from Spring Field College as "Volleyball". Mental toughness is the attitude that makes a successful volleyball player willing to do what it takes to get the job done. It takes more than relaxation, visualization, meditation and other quick fix self-improvement techniques to achieve success. In volleyball a player have to develop the attitude of "you don't have to like it, you just have to do it" is at least the beginning a substantial key to successful performance. The demand for peak performance is simply a form of challenge.
