How to be a great volleyball captain?
Topic: How to write a speech for school captain
April 22, 2019 / By Alex Question:
I am a junior at my school and I was voted captain my team along with another girl, who is a senior. There are other seniors on the team who ran for captain (you have to be nominanted to run, then give a speech, and then get the top votes)..but the other seniors did not win. I feel I best deserved being captain because I am the top player on the team and have better qualities for a captain, but now the other captain and other seniors are kinda mad at me, but wont show it. I dont know what to do. Any help?
Also, I want to do something creative for everyone on my team..like, design waterbottles for everyone for every game or something like that. Any ideas for that??

being a captain cannot be taught or learned. it is something you have to find inside you. as for the seniors that are mad, simply ask then why they did not vote for someone else for captain. you won the majority, you earned it. show them you deserve to be captain by staying positive around them and don't show them you know they are mad. just be yourself, and eventually they will feel stupid for being such jerks. as for the designing something, you could go to like michaels or amazing savings and get like $2 water bottles and write their names on it a get vb stickers or something so everyone always has a water bottle. it would be cute. like i said, leadership is something inside you. you feel like you deserved captain, and for that you do. just keep your head up and show them you are a true leader! good luck

Well my coach always says to the captains to talk to your teammates on the court and keep a positive attitude. When someone makes a mistake just quickly tell them to just shake it off. If the captains' aren't having the right mind set then the whole team does badly. So if you're down by a few points then tell your team to just play one point at a time. and as for the seniors just tell them that you got nominated and you just ran for team captain and if the majority of the team wants you to be captain then you just can't help it. Plus why should they be mad at you? I mean it's not like you bribed your team to vote for you right? Oh and as for something creative, maybe do some fund raising and buy personalized volleyball t shirts or water bottles for your team.

I actually made co-captain of my volleyball team this year. To be captain u the first thing u need to know is how to play the game. You should be a good teacher so u can teach the new people how to play. Also be very encouraging. Make sure in a game everyone is in the right positions. It basically takes a lot of leadership.

okay, one just be like a leader, if you are losing a game and it's a blow out game, just give them some encouragement, everone will start feeling better and lift their heads up high. No one really cares about water bottles or anything like that, they'll just end up getting lost, someone will take someone else's home by mistake, blah, blah, blah....., but at the end of the season, make arrangements to get like team sweatshirts or something (have everyone pay for their own, because they are VERY expansive) everyone loves sweatshirts or a big team photo for everyone, that's a memory that the seniors or girls who might be changing schools can keep forever to remember there 2008-2009 volleyball team.

Wow! What a story!
So, it goes back thousands of years. Just like any group of people, there are good doctors and bad doctors. Let's face it: half of all doctors are "below average".
Don't confuse intelligence with medical abilities: there is no correlation.
Cherokees, as is the case of Plains Indians, did not have medicine women, only medicine men. Still, many women were highly skilled in some aspects of medical care. Brain surgery performed by American Indians thousands of years ago were as successful as their modern counterparts in the best hospitals.
Disease and infections are spread whenever people are forced to be in an enclosed environment (hospitals, schools, churches, nursing homes) with lots of other people.
Air and running water are highly effective in preventing the spread of disease or infections.
A native American is anyone who was born here and his parents and grandparents were born here.
IAW the Cherokee Nation (www.allthingscherokee.com, Cherokee nation at Tahlequah, Oklahoma) if you have even one ancestor listed on the Dawes Roll, you are eligible to join the Cherokee Nation. But you must have the proof of birth certificate for yourself, birth/marriage/death certificates back to whomever was listed on the Rolls.
You claim a Cherokee 5 generations ago; that means you are 1/32 Cherokee, if the story is true.
Do your research and contact the Cherokee Nation.
