Hanna joined volleyball this year. I wanted her to be in something just so she could get some sort of exercise and volleyball was appealing because they have 3 one and a half hour practices a week. Perfect! She wasn't too thrilled with the idea but went to the first practice anyway and liked it.

I think she said there are like 60 girls that joined. They had their first round robin last night. I went to watch and it's very surprising how good some of them are already being only 6th graders. Hanna has never touched a volleyball before so she isn't very skilled yet. She has a good serve but there isn't an energetic bone in her body. So while all the other girls are running about, Hanna is the one that just sort of stands around. I don't know what I need to do to get her to be more aggressive. Help?

Anyway, it isn't important to me that she be the best, I just want her to find something that she likes to do so she can stay active. She's only been practicing for a couple weeks, so hopefully she'll lose her timidness and play with gusto.

Next week they have another one so we'll see if she has improved her hustle at all by then.
