Personal Statement

I am Vanessa McNabb, captain of the High-Performance club Fraser Valley Water Polo (FVWP), located in Vancouver, British Columbia. FVWP won Gold for Women's 17U Nationals for the 2021/22 season. I was named National MVP and am also the leading goal scorer in Canada.

In November 2021, I was invited to join the talent pool for Canada's Senior Women's National Team with Water Polo Canada. Subsequently, I was named to the Canadian Women's Youth National Team for 2022 and as an alternate for Canada's Junior Pan American Team.

I have played water polo for seven years and have participated in competitive swimming since I was seven. I play Center Forward and a Utility Player for my 19U team. I play seasonally in the High-Performance National Championship League (NCL) with Water Polo Canada. 

I also played on the Quebec Provincial Team this summer, where we won silver. I then began training in Montreal with the Women's Youth National Team. I was also named an alternate on the Women's Junior National Team.   I am currently in tryouts for the 19U Team British Columbia (Team BC). 

I have participated in the USA Water Polo Junior Olympics each summer for the past four years. In 2021, I played with Gold Coast in the Gold Division, where we won Gold. I had a scoring average of 5 goals every game, with 33 goals in 5 games with a shooting average of 87%. Ever since I was young, I have had a passion for being in the water. I want to go to University for water polo and, hopefully, one day make a professional career out of it. I consider myself a physically and mentally tough player, which I take pride in. I am very coachable, a team player and love every aspect of the game.

My strengths are my high water polo IQ and coachability. I'm a team player, strive to be a leader and do so by setting an example for my teammates. I am excited about this next step in college athletics and look forward to finding a program and school where I can excel in and out of the pool.
