Hi! Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile.
My name is Ava Napierski. I am 15 years old and I will be a Sophomore at Timpview High School. I played on both the jv and varsity volleyball teams last year as an outside hitter and middle blocker. Our varsity team took state in the 5A championships. It was such an amazing opportunity to be a part of such a strong and dedicated team of players. I also play with ClubV and I am on their top MP 15's team as middle blocker. My Clubv team won the USAV National Championships in the American division and I was named to the All-Tournament team. Additionally, I was nominee for the Under Armour All American camp.
It has always been a goal of mine to play volleyball in college. I am a very determined person. My mom said when I was younger I would write down my goals for the day and shut myself in my room until I had accomplished them. I always push myself to be the very best that I can be and look for support and encouragement from my family, friends and coaches. I have a lot of energy and use it to motivate my teammates and to keep the mood positive.
I was born in Germany but moved to Japan and lived there for ten years. My family traveled the world and I have experienced so many different cultures. I love learning about new places and embracing the customs and people along the way. I have been forced to live outside of my comfort zone for most of my life, which has made me into a resilient and outgoing person. These qualities transfer to the volleyball court by giving me the confidence to integrate with all types of players and coaches. I know that I can learn from every experience that I encounter and can grow from both positive and negative situations. I am a good student and have maintained a GPA range of 3.5-4.0. I take honors classes and plan to take AP classes in the next few years. In my free time, I like to stay active with my parents and friends by going on bike rides, hikes, boating and spending time with my siblings.
I absolutely love volleyball and all of the opportunities it has given me to develop my strengths and weaknesses both on and off the court. I have met so many phenomenal people and look forward to the exciting adventures that are ahead of me. I know that I can become the best player by putting in the time and listening to my coaches, parents and teachers. I'm very grateful to be a part of this amazing sport.
