In my professional career, I have been in all the situations I am about to describe. Sometimes I’ve thought to myself, this can’t be what happened to me. On the other hand, overcoming these troubles always made me stronger and I was then more resilient, mentally stronger and with experience and knowledge of how to deal with nightmares.

1. Injury

Injuries can be every volleyball player’s worst nightmare. Common injuries include ankle sprains, muscle strains, and sometimes and more serious issues such as ligament tears or fractures. These injuries not only cause physical pain, but can also lead to a longer rehabilitation period, disrupt your training schedule, and potentially affect your long-term volleyball performance. The recovery process often requires thorough physical therapy, rest and a gradual return to activity, which can be frustrating and slow. In addition, injuries can have a profound psychological impact as athletes may struggle with fear of re-injury, loss of confidence and pressure to return to previous levels of performance.

2. Burnout

You know yourself that volleyball requires a high level of physical and mental commitment. Burnout occurs when players experience chronic fatigue, decreased motivation, and feel disillusioned with the sport. I’ve experienced this myself, sometimes for 14 days I was in a state where I didn’t enjoy anything about volleyball, I had no desire to work on myself.
Sometimes it was the result of over-training, high pressure on the players at the club and not enough time to rest or recover. Burnout not only hinders your performance, but it also affects our enthusiasm and overall player well-being. Symptoms can include persistent fatigue, irritability and disinterest in the game or training. If burnout is not addressed, it can lead to a long-term disconnect from the sport, ultimately affecting a player’s longevity and enjoyment of volleyball.
