2021 Volleyball Schedule:

DUE TO COVID-19 ALL TOURNAMENTS POSTPONED 

I started playing volleyball in grade 6 for my elementary school and I made the practice team for the 7 and 8s team that year. I instantly fell in love and was determined to become a starter that year for our junior team. After many hours in my backyard with a volleyball, my dream came true and I was officially a starter. After, our team went on to become regional champions but I was not ready to call it quits after such a short season. I ended up going to clinics whenever they were available and attending many summer camps. When tryout season rolled around I was ready to prove to myself that all my hard work paid off. I made the Durham Attack 13U team that year and we went on to be Division 1 Tier 2 bronze medalists at provincials and attended 14U Nationals. By the next year, I was truly confident in my athletic abilities and was ready to take on a new challenge, being captain… This experience really shaped who I am as a player to this day and pushed me to move out of my comfort zone.

The same year, we went to Nationals in Edmonton and were Division 2 Tier 1 silver medalists. In February of 2018, I tried out for the Region 4 volleyball team and made it. This experience was amazing and the high level volleyball that we played opened my eyes to a whole new level of competition. All of my triumphs over these two years playing club volleyball only made my transition into highschool even easier especially because I was moving into a boarding school.

Due to academic commitments in my grade 9 year I was unable to play club but that did not stop me from trying out for the Senior girls team. I have now been on my senior team for three years and have been a starter since the beginning. When grade 10 rolled around I was ready to get back into club volleyball and I ended up switching teams and playing for Durham Rebels. I was appointed  to be a captain once again on this team and my starting position solidified that although I missed one year of club, my skill still allowed me to play a key role in my team’s success.

I returned this year to play for Durham Rebels Ruthless 17U team and we have had about two months of modified practices so far due to COVID-19.
