Umari's Club Volleyball Fees
Organized by: Umari Stroud
I have been playing volleyball since the 7th grade and I've been in love with this sport ever since. I would like to go far with volleyball; onto a D1 college and maybe play professional volleyball one day. In order to get there, I play club volleyball to improve my skills and get the exposure that I need in order for college coaches to contact me. My hope is to get recruited. I play for Athena Volleyball Club which focuses on detail and has really helped me improve my skills the past couple of years. I began Athena Volleyball after my freshman school volleyball season, and since then I've been awarded 2nd team all league, first team all league, and League MVP. This elite volleyball team is expensive and unfortunately, I can't afford it on my own. I recently got a job to save money so that I can participate. I live with my single mother who has been working 3 jobs to help me pay for the past club volleyball seasons. I really appreciate it, but I would like to take more responsibility . I hope to raise enough funds to take some of the weight off of her. After high school, I look forward to being in the dental program; ultimately an orthodontist. I have maintained honor roll through out middle school up to now. I am hard working. Right now I have a 3.8 GPA, I am in the National Honors Society at my school and I am majoring in Health Occupations. I am a successful student athlete asking for a hand. Anything helps! Please and thank you.
