Hello, my name is Allison Douglass and I live in Sherwood, Oregon. I’m writing you today because I am very passionate about volleyball and would love to play volleyball in college at the highest level. I am different from other players in that I believe I have what it takes to compete at the highest level. I believe I have the drive and determination to continue to improve as a player on and off the court. I really enjoyed playing at the Girls Junior Nationals in Minneapolis in June 2017 with my Athena Club Team. It showed me that I can play at the highest level and areas I need to continue to work on. I love to go to volleyball practice, camps and lessons to keep growing as a player. Each year I continue to improve and grow as a player each year. One of my better attibrutes is my quickness and agility on my feet as well as my ability to jump. I not only love hitting the ball I also love to play defense. I believe I am an all around type of player. I really enjoy encouraging others on my team to keep on competing even when it gets hard. I am excited to pursue my dream of playing volleyball in college at the highest level, because simply put I love volleyball.
Let me tell you about myself. I am currently a sophomore at Sherwood High School. I started on the varsity volleyball team at my high school receiving honorable mention from the Three Rivers League last year. In addition, I received athlete of the month at my high school as a freshman. I have a 4.0 GPA and plan to study science in college. My goal is to get a 4.0 throughout my high school journey. I just finished playing for 15-1 Gold at Athena Volleyball Club based out of Beaverton, Oregon. I was on their top 15’s team starting as an outside hitter. My current height is 5’11” and vertical approach jump is 9ft 10 inches with a 9ft 7 inch jump block. My reach is 7ft 6.5 inches. My goal this year is to work on my vertical and quickness on the court. I’m participating in a special cross training program for speed and all body strength.
I received first team all league honors fall 2018 for my varsity season at Sherwood. I was a starter and a six roatation player.
Currently, I am on 17-1 Gold at Athena Volleyball Academy, Beaverton, OR. I am looking forward to a competitive and fun year of Club!
