What Would You Tell Your 15 year-old  Self About Playing Club Volleyball:

U15 Assistant Coach - Isley Rosner

Hometown:
Appleton, Wisconsin

Playing Experience:
I started playing volleyball when I was in 6th grade not really knowing exactly what it was. In 8th grade, I decided to start club volleyball. I played for Fox Cities Elite for 1 year then moved to Green Bay Power for 3 years. I knew I wanted to continue playing competitively in college, so I tried out at The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee’s club team. I was the only freshman to make the team as a libero/defensive specialist. I played on the team for 3 years traveling to tournaments all over Wisconsin. We made it to NCVF’s Nationals in Kansas City, St. Louis, and Denver all 3 years I played.

Coaching Experience:
This is my first year of coaching and I am so excited to see what is in store for me! I am ready to learn and share my love and dedication of the sport with my players!

Playing/Coaching Accomplishments:
I played at Kimberly High School. I got voted the Defensive MVP two years in a row. In 2018 we took second place NCVF Volleyball Championships in St Louis. In the D1AAA division, we ended up losing a very close match to Appalachian St. University.

Degree/Education:
I am a senior at the University of Milwaukee and studying Elementary Education.

Personal:
Growing up, I was either in a volleyball gym on the weekends or in school on weekdays. When I was not in school or the gym I was either with my family or friends. My family is very important to me! I have my mom, dad, younger brother who is 19, younger sister who is 15 and a new Sheepadoodle puppy named Winston. I love to travel and see new places. I recently spent a month this past summer, studying abroad in Florence, Italy. It was an amazing experience and something I will never forget.

Why Do You Enjoy Coaching:
I am going to be a teacher so I know I love working with kids. I love watching kids and young adults grow into the best they can be, whether that is in the classroom or on the volleyball court.

What Would You Tell Your 15 year-old Self About Playing Club Volleyball:
Something that I would tell my 15 year old self is to be the best you can be and leave it all on the court, it goes by fast. Be open to learning new things and most importantly have fun!

Favorite Volleyball Memory:
Meeting lifetime long friends from playing club volleyball!
