OK here's the deal,
I have always loved volleyball, it's my favorite sport. I've never played organized volleyball though, because I've never had an opportunity.
Whenever I play (we play beach volleyball at an annual family reunion, and we play in gym class at school and occasionally have tournaments) I feel as though I play very well. My gym teacher made the comment that I could have a future in volleyball if I worked at it.
My aunt who always plays with me played D1 college volleyball and she says that I certainly have all the tools to play high level volleyball.
I'm 6'1 and am very confident in my ability to pass, set, hit, block, and play defense.
Here's the big problem...I'm going to be a Junior in High School and I'm about to turn 17. Seems to me that's pretty old to just be getting into volleyball. I have been watching Olympic Volleyball and Dax Holdren (a male beach volleyball player) started playing volleyball when he was my age, and not only did he turn pro but he went to the Olympic Games!
My main question is this:
How do I go about starting to play volleyball, keeping in mind my long term goal of playing at a D1 college. Although I'm very confident in my abilities I don't presume to think that I could ever go pro however I really would like to see how I measure up, and maybe it would be possible.
Anyway I want to know what to do to make myself a better player and get noticed by college volleyball programs. It is my dream to play volleyball in college and I was wondering for any advice on how to realize that dream.
Also in the mean time, are there any drills you can do on your own or with one or two friends that I can do to make me a better player while preparing for my shot, should it ever come.
Thanks so much everyone.
