My name is Jordan Cardenas and I am a 5’11” Libero entering my Junior year of high school. After 8 years of training in Taekwondo, I felt it was time to expand in other types of athletics, something that encompassed more of a team environment, which is how I stumbled on to volleyball. What initially started as a bit of an experiment on a recreational Friday night volleyball league, has now morphed into a passion and love that I have for the game. As I am getting ready to enter my 4th year of club volleyball, I reflect on all I have learned in the three short years that I have played. Not only have I grown my skill set, but one of the biggest challenges that I have overcome is learning how to communicate with different players and coaches to achieve the common goals of our team.
My personal goal is to continue playing volleyball beyond high school at the highest level possible. Academically, I plan to study either Criminal Justice or Biology and continue the successful educational path that I have experienced in high school. I am a hard worker and successful student athlete and am focused on carrying those traits into college.
