My goal in life is to go to the 2012 Olympics. I want to do volleyball - Im good. How do I get to the Olympics?

So ya dig sports but need some help with your game? Don't understand some of the rules of football, basketball or hockey? Got a gripe about P.E. class, skateboarders, cheerleading, coaches, or anything? Why not ?

1Hey Coach,
My goal in life is to go to the 2012 Olympics. I want to do volleyball - I'm good, and on the team. How do I train to get into the Olympics and how do I get into the Olympics?

Hey ostricher

Only the most elite athletes in the world qualify for the Olympics - so it's good that you're looking to get a head start on your lofty goal. For volleyball, the best way to get to the Olympics is to become involved with the USA National Junior Team. Every year USA Volleyball [KWLINK 4829[b]holds tryouts across the country for boys and girls aged 12 to 18. Tryouts for boys are held between January and March, while tryouts for girls are held in March and April. For a complete schedule of tryouts 

 

Coaches at these tryout camps are looking for specific things in a volleyball player to become involved in the national program. They're looking for athleticism, good technique, strength, confidence and leadership, aggressiveness, vision and reaction, and an ability to learn and improve. They are also looking for competitive players who enjoy the rigors and demands of high level training - so if you don't like to be pushed, this may not be the program for you. For more info on the USA volleyball program and how to get involved, head to www.usavolleyball.org. Good luck and hopefully we'll be seeing you bump, set and spike in London in 2012.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.

It's definitely an American thing - here in Australia we have like no Cheerleaders or Cheerleading groups. I think it's a sport but I'm not really into it. I think any girls or boys can do it. :3

Sure, many girls can fight, in fact some can fight really well, however it is a fact that women are generally physically weaker than men, which means that if a healthy male and a healthy female were to fight then the outcome wouldn't be 50/50 but rather 25/75 if even that much, this assumes that both the male and female have the same experience, training and of course both are healthy. This doesn't mean that women are inferior to men, but I am just pointing out facts, the notion that men and women are exactly the same and should be carrying out the same tasks is ridiculous.
