Joseph Kwame Mintah | Leslie Ann Flores | Prosper Narteh Ogum
Abstract: This study purports to find out the pressure female club volleyball players experience during the season. A total of 47 female club volleyball players between ages 12-18 years participated in the study. Findings showed that players worry over having fun in playing volleyball. They also experience academic pressure as they combine club volleyball with school work. As players mature in age and get closer to moving on to college or university, they experience the pressure of securing academic scholarship. These alongside high expectations from parents and coaches place the female club volleyball player at risk of experiencing worry, stress and anxiety during the season.
