Share This Resource


Stephanie Schleuder coached college volleyball at University of Alabama, University of Minnesota and Macalester College. She retired in 2009 with 702 career victories and was inducted into the Volleyball Hall of Fame in 2015.

Here Schleuder describes the “Celebration Phenomenon” which she created with her team when they were starting to get discouraged. Similar to a Mistake Ritual the celebration phenomenon is a more extensive activity the team creates to stay positive after every point. Schleuder found it to be an effective way to keep spirits up when things were not necessarily going their way.
