I bought this necklace for my 12 year old niece who loves volleyball and has been playing for 4 years. The necklace is the perfect length and size for a preteen! She loved the saying on the necklace because she said volleyball requires both physical and mental skill and without Christ she wouldn't have either one! She said she had wanted a necklace but couldn't find one anywhere! At the end of the day she said that this was her second favorite Christmas gift (the first was tickets to One Direction)! I am very pleased with this product.
