When Haylee came home and told me she was going to play volleyball and flood of emotions overcame me.
Fear, overwhelming, scared, unsure, even a bit of anger.
Yes anger for how I was going to handle it when she came home upset because she could not do it.
But again I felt all these things for no reason at all.
Haylee started playing volleyball a few weeks ago and loves it.
So I decided to ask Haylee some questions about playing volleyball with only one hand.
What is the hardest thing about volleyball?
Learning the best way to serve.
Do you worry about the opposite team and what they think?
No not really. It just means they under estimate me. And that’s a good thing!
What is the hardest thing about playing volleyball with a little hand?
Setting. I don’t really have the “fingertips” to set properly.
Is there anything that is easier in volleyball with a little hand?
Bumping. If I use my one thumb I don’t really need to make sure I have a flat surface.
Do you suggest others with little hand try out volleyball?
Yes definitely. Try new things that seem really hard because then when your boss at it, if feels really good.
