Robert A. Millikan HS
My name is Calyce Jones, I am part of the Class of 2021. I attend Robert A. Millikan High School in Long Beach, California, where I'm a two year letterman on the girls varsity volleyball team. I'm in Millikan's QUEST program, an advanced academic program for highly motivated, gifted and talented college-bound students. I've maintained a 4.0 GPA while making the Principal's Highest Honor Roll every semester since my freshman year and I'm a California Scholarship Federation Honoree.
I have over 5 years of elite club volleyball experience. I currently train and compete at Dream In Gold Volleyball Club led by Coach Misty May Treanor, Coach Tyler Jackson and Coach Devon Taylor. As the captain and setter for both my high school and club teams, I'm more than capable of facilitating a 5-1 and/or 6-2 offense. I'm a very athletic and versatile setter with a high volleyball I.Q. that understands how to put my hitters in optimal scoring opportunities. What I might lack in size at the setter's position, I make up with a commitment towards being a hard worker, confidence and competitive spirit. I possess many intangible leadership qualities that has helped me excel both on the court and in the classroom. I enjoy learning all of the intricate nuances of the setter's position and the various strategies of putting my hitters in optimal scoring opportunities.
My academic aspirations are to experience a university's or a college's rich academic traditions, diverse learning environment and community. I plan on majoring in Sports Medicine and pursue an advanced degree in the profession. I participate in a dual-enrollment program where I take (1) college general education course during the summer, fall, winter, and spring sessions. My goal is to graduate high school with at least 24 college units towards my intended major's prerequisite classes and general education requirements.
My athletic aspirations are to play volleyball at the collegiate level while competing at the highest level for a conference and national championships throughout my collegiate career. As part of my volleyball development in becoming a collegiate volleyball player, I have committed myself to improving my jumping-ability, core strength and flexibility 1-2 times a week. In addition to my strength and core training, I take part in an intensive setter's-training academy at least once a week with my club coaches. I welcome the all challenges of getting better and learning more about how to become a successful and complete collegiate volleyball player.
I believe I will be a valuable addition to your volleyball program and exemplify the many attributes the university and volleyball program requires of their student-athletes. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for any future consideration as a prospective student-athlete volleyball recruit for your program and I look forward to building a great relationship with you and your coaching staff in the near future.
