Lindsey Berg putting her heart into spreading volleyball’s popularity
Lindsey Berg played in three Olympic Games for the USA
The Beijing 2008 and London 2012 silver medal-winning setter has launched “The Cuore Project” to promote women’s volleyball, tell individual and collective stories and share knowledge of what it takes to succeed in the sport.
Berg, who was an assistant coach at the University of Hawai’i, also played at the Japan 2010 FIVB Volleyball World Championship and Athens 2004 Olympic Games, so has a wealth of experience to call upon.
“I want girls to have idols, heroes, and role models. I want to send a strong message to these young girls to live life ‘Con Cuore’,” Berg explains on the website.
The hope is that by sharing stories of success and recovering from setbacks Berg and other volleyball stars can inspire and educate the next generation of female volleyball players.
USA middle blocker Rachel Adams and Berg’s fellow Beijing 2008 and London 2012 silver medallist Nicole Davis are two of the stars who have contributed to “The Cuore Project” and passed on their experiences of playing volleyball at the top level and what it takes to reach such heights.
They provide advice on goal setting, pre-match mental preparation and help in finding the right university with the aim of giving young female volleyball players every chance of success in their sporting careers.
