Funny Volleyball Quotes

Most people put a hat and glasses on to go incognito. I take them off.
Karch Kiraly

We play at the world’s most beautiful beaches but in the world’s most challenging conditions. It is not like you play one match and you go back to air conditioning. We do it all day long.
Karch Kiraly

Physically I’m not as strong as I was, but I try to make up for it mentally. It’s a big challenge, and I relish it, competing with guys half my age.
Karch Kiraly

The beach game taught me great lessons about how to elevate the play of my teammate, or teammates, and how to anticipate and expect the ball so much more than the indoor game ever could. It taught me — even forced me — to be a much better all-around player. That allowed me to help our USA Olympic Team in many more ways than I ever could have otherwise.
Karch Kiraly

I still get excited just attending a final four, because the process is so long, so arduous, so challenging, that when it finally arrives, the adrenaline can’t help but take over. I love the sense of accomplishment and camaraderie that the indoor game can engender.

More Karch Kiraly Quotes

The indoor game is much more of a team game, having to work effectively with a group of 15 to 20 people, striving to improve every day, every drill, even every contact. The beach game is much more of an individual game within a team sport, much less about organized practices with coaches and much more about just playing the game.
Karch Kiraly

No volleyball play can begin without a serve, and the serve is the only technique that is totally under your control. In other endeavors, you cannot succeed without believing in yourself, and that belief is completely under your control.
Karch Kiraly

I never did. I only prepared to win the next day.
Karch Kiraly, when asked how he prepared to win Olympic gold

It’s the best. And the job site isn’t too bad, either.
Karch Kiraly, about his work outfit (shorts)

It’s hard to give a career like this up, when I tell my wife I’m going to the office, and it’s the beach.
Karch Kiraly

A lot of people had doubts. I tried to tell people I never had doubts.
Misty May, after an Olympic victory

It takes a lot of hard work and dedication just like any pro sport. Especially for beach volleyball you don’t have to be tall or as fast as other sports. You just have to have the skills.
Misty May

I grew up on the beach and played side-out scoring all my life, but rally scoring is better for our sport. There is pressure on every play. You can’t make a mistake, but that also means your opponent can’t make a mistake. It makes the matches more exciting to watch.
Holly McPeak

Anyone serious about playing indoor, you should play outdoor.
Sean Scott

You touch every other ball and, if you screw up, you only have one more person to back you up. You can’t go hide in the corner.
Kerri Walsh

We don’t have a World Series or a Super Bowl, so to be able to come home with a gold medal is amazing. I want to do it again in four more years.
