It is my dream to play volleyball after I graduate from high school. I have played since I was in the second grade when I fell in love with the sport. I began playing for school in the 7th grade. In school and in club I have been the primary leader on the court, making sure that the other players are in their proper positions, calling and setting up plays and directing the team's zone serving. I constantly strive to become a better player and work hard to make sure that happens. I also try to make the other players on the court better. I welcome my coaches' various suggestions and try to learn from what they tell me. On and off the court I get along well with my teammates and enjoy the friendship I have with them. I am going to work hard to make my dream of playing college volleyball a reality. I believe I would be a good candidate not only because of my on-the-court skills, but also because of my willingness to grow off the court. I would appreciate your consideration.
