My name is Jalen Chan, Class of 2022. I attend Sinclair Secondary School in Whitby, Ontario, Canada. I also attend ASAD, which is an Academy for Student Athlete Development. There, I do strength training/conditioning and receive additional training for volleyball. My coach at ASAD, Tyler Scheerhoorn, was a former national player for Team Canada. For most of life, I had wanted to become a professional soccer player. Now, all that has changed. Volleyball has become my passion. On the court, I am determined, hardworking and dependable. Off the court, I am organized, respectful and disciplined.

These are certainly interesting times. Last year’s rep volleyball season was cut short. Our team was scheduled to compete at the provincial and national levels; however, with the pandemic, all of this was cancelled. This year, games at both the high school and rep levels have yet to be rescheduled. Despite these setbacks, I have continued to develop my volleyball IQ and train hard.

My volleyball coach, Shedrick Forbes, played for 4 years as a varsity all-star at Warner University and at the national and international level with team Bahamas. Coach Shedrick has played at several regional and international level competitions including Caribbean Volleyball Championships, NORCECA championship qualifiers, world championship qualifiers, Pan American cup championships and Pan American Games competition. My coach is one of the reasons I strive to play volleyball at high levels. I am a diligent athlete and leader who would represent any college/university well.

I can compete. I know I am not the tallest, but my height has NEVER prevented me from achieving my goals. A couple of years ago, I was compared to the libero, Justin Lui, who played for the Canadian Junior National Team and for the men’s volleyball team at Stanford University. I have been told that I am a younger version of him. Hearing that was truly amazing. Being a fierce competitor is something that can’t be taught. Every time I walk onto the court, I have the mindset to play to win. I have confidence and trust in my teammates to know that the ball will land on the opponent’s side. I encourage my teammates to be on top of their game.

Before playing rep volleyball, I competed in Wushu. It took a great deal of strength, discipline and perseverance to reach the national and world levels that I did in Wushu. I also played a high level of rep soccer for many years. Both of these sports have helped me to develop the strength, discipline and endurance to succeed in both indoor, beach and 9-man volleyball. Provincial and national success in all of these sports has enabled me to travel and compete in Ontario, Alberta, Virginia, Massachusetts, Texas, Costa Rica and Bulgaria.

My love for volleyball began in grade 4 at the elementary school level. On the volleyball court, I have quick movement, a high volleyball IQ and strong technical skills. I try to be a role model for my team by putting forth my best effort 100% of the time. I am very coachable and always strive to be one of the hardest working players both during training and in game situations. I am confident that I am one of the most disciplined recruits any college/university would find.

In 2018, I was offered a position on the Team Ontario Regional Team. This program included high performance training at the University of Guelph. I went on to compete at the Ontario Summer Games at the University of Western. Therefore, my additional volleyball training has been extensive. I have also trained at Momentum Pro Sports, Great Lakes Centre for Sports Performance Volleyball, Toronto Connex Volleyball Club, Volleyball Position Camp (VPC), TOPS Volleyball Academy and ASAD Durham (Academy for Sport Athlete Development).

With all of this, I have worked hard to achieve tremendous grades. I currently have honours with a 3.3 GPA. As a student, I felt very proud to have received the Honour Roll Certificates in my first and second years of secondary school. My goal is to find the right college/university which offers the program of Physical Education, Exercise Science or Athletic Training, in addition to a strong men’s volleyball team. I envision my future college/university to have a strong sense of community and supportive learning environment.

Outside of indoor volleyball, I also play beach volleyball. In 2019, my partner and I competed in the premier division in every tournament. I also enjoy playing badminton and basketball, as well as weight/strength training in my spare time. I enjoy these activities because it develops my strengths as an all-around athlete, and they are fun!

I want to continue to push myself on the volleyball court. My goals are to develop the respect of my teammates and coaches, and to make my parents proud.
