I am Addison Conti and I will be a Senior at Tiffin Columbian High School. This will be my 4th year playing Varsity and 3rd year as Team Captain.
The coach runs a 6 2 offense so I can set and hit right side as I am left handed. This is a format that I am very comfortable with as I have run this offense in school since I was in fourth grade and at Blackswamp Volleyball Club since I was on the 10U team.
Volleyball was first introduced to me when I was nine at a Tiffin University Youth Camp and I have been playing ever since. I have played on National teams at Blackswamp Volleyball Club the past five years. My Freshman season, I played up two age levels on the 17 National team and I am currently playing my age level. Playing up two age levels was an honor. The level of competition and increased speed of the game helped make me a better player overall. The past four summers I have played on a two person sand volleyball team. My partner and I qualified for and competed in Sand Nationals two Summers in a row. Sand volleyball is a great way to build strength, power and agility which has been a great benefit to my indoor skills.
The sport of volleyball has helped me become a more focused and patient person. I am very competitive but realize that I am only one person on a team of many and we all play our part in making that team a success.
My goals for High School are to take advantage of the college level courses we are fortunate to take at our local college in order to get a head start on my academic future. Good grades are very important to me as I work just as hard in the classroom as in the gym. Currently I am interested in majoring in Physical Therapy or Health Sciences field in college.
There are several reasons why I believe I would be a good fit on your team. I am a team player and understand my role on the team. I am not afraid to speak up and be a team leader when it’s needed. My coaches have often said I am, “very coachable”, which I believe is an important quality in any athlete. I am very easy to get along with and have a positive attitude on and off the court. I love to celebrate every point and encourage my team mates if they are down. I work hard on the court and in the classroom and I am dedicated to success in both areas.
Hopefully this gives you an idea of who I am as a volleyball player and student and I hope you will consider me as a positive addition to your team.
