I'm from Northern Illinois and I am a 5'5" junior in high school. I've been a setter my entire life, and have played club since the 12's team and am now in my 17's club season.
My club isn't one of the "big" clubs to watch or that you'd hear about, and my teams have never been spectacular, although I've always been listed on the "best" teams in my age division. I'm rather short for the position, and I wouldn't say I've had the best of training throughout the years either.
It's my dream to play college volleyball as a setter somewhere, and I'm definitely willing to play at a college far away from home. I know I'm too short to play at a D1 school or anything really big, but is it too late for me to convince my parents to start video taping games and to start recruiting profiles online?
Also, how would I contact coaches (and, who would I contact, the Head Coach himself or the Athletics Department of the college?) and what would I say to them in the e-mail/phone call/way of contact?
Not to brag, but I know I have pretty good skills and I know the game like the back of my hand, so I know I have what it takes, I just want to know how, if it's not to late, to get into the "recruiting game" and how to be recognized and picked out of all of the other players trying to be noticed as well.
