After such a disappointing start to the season we finished strong. Unfortunately we were not able to get a spot in a medal match but we definitely pushed ourselves through the playoff stage playing our best volleyball of the season! We finished off our season in 6th place losing to Lyngby-Gladsaxe for the first time this season in 4 sets (22-25, 20-25, 25-25, 24-26).
A lot of people say that they have developed as a player and person after their season, usually i sit there think to myself “yeah, sure, you’re only saying that cause you don’t know what else to say” but now that i have experienced it first hand I can say that they are spot on. When i arrived i thought i knew volleyball but as every training passed and each game went by i started to realise that i know next to nothing. Almost every training i would stand there asking myself what, how and why and usually end up having a long conversation (not an argument as most of my previous coaches would remember me doing) with my coach, Tom, trying to understand the little details of all the new and different techniques i was learning. I have definitely developed as a player and person and learnt more about myself than i ever though was possible.
I am looking forward to coming back to Middelfart Volleyball Klub next season to extend my knowledge and hopefully push for that medal position!
Look forward to seeing everyone soon!
