Recruiting Tips

Article supplied by Lindsey Martin, FRVBC Recruiting Coordinator

As finals for most high schools come to a close this week, and many kids will have the opportunity to look toward their future college volleyball careers, I thought it would be a good time to start a series for our athletes on how to look into what college they would like to attend!  Although volleyball programs, location, and school colors (I mean, fashion is of course on every teenager’s mind) are very important, I thought we should first focus on what our players could be studying in college, and what they might do afterwards!!  I know it’s a LOT to ask a teenager to pick what they are going to do with the rest of their lives, RIGHT NOW, but I think its good to look ahead a little bit, and at least be knowledgable! 

I understand that many of our young athletes (as well as their parents) are anticipating a successful and lucrative future after college, so in this article, I will focus on FORBES 10 Most Valuable College Majors.  Granted, there are plenty of other jobs or majors to select from, all of which can have great occupational gain after college, but like I said above – this is a starting point for our athletes, and I will follow up with many other articles that will explain multiple other facets of college selection and life for them to consider, as well, in other articles! 

So here is what FORBES (online) believes are the top 10 Most Valuable College Majors, at least for the 2014 year!

All this being said, I was a teacher for three years, and then started a career of being a volleyball coach (at the college and club level) and ABSOLUTELY LOVE my life and job.  So, make sure you find something that doesn’t just make you lots of money, but also makes you happy.  More to come soon!!

Screenings for FR Athletes Through Partnership with Rebound Therapy

New Dates Now Available

At the beginning of the season we will be providing functional movement screens of all our FRVBC athletes. The series of tests or screens are designed to pick up on any weaknesses or faulty movement patterns. The tests are specific to volleyball and the stresses this puts on different parts of the body. These screens are conducted by a physical therapist staff member of the Rebound Therapy and Wellness Clinic at no additional cost to FRVBC athletes.  http://www.reboundclinic.com/home
Areas to be screened:

  1. Mobility or range of motion in the shoulders. Is the motion excessive, asymmetrical or painful.
  2. Posture and postural awareness. What is the athlete’s posture in rest and when moving.
  3. Quad strength, hip mobility and hip strength. Is the athlete quad dominant, are there asymmetries in movement in the hips, knees and ankles. Is there compensatory movement, specifically in the hips, knees and ankles. Is there pain with squatting and finally is there restriction in movement.
  4. Core strength, including hip and abdominal strength. Is there a weakness and compensatory movement pattern.

Djimmer Bosman has done these screens for several years now and is seeing a pattern in injuries and weaknesses. Part of this is being addressed by Billy Glisan (Strength and Conditioning Coach for FRVBC) in the conditioning and SAQ portion of team practice. But there are some basic things that all athletes can work on individually to allow their body’s to be able to compete to the best of their abilities, while minimizing the risk of injury.

This year screens will be at the Rebound Therapy and Wellness Clinic. Djimmer will begin screens the Wednesday December 10th. We would like all screens for athletes completed as soon as possible.

Appointments are available during the hours listed below (more appointment times to come)

  • Friday December 19th from 3-6pm
  • Sunday December 21st from 10-2pm
  • Monday December 22nd from 4.30-7pm

Parents should contact Djimmer by e-mail: djimmerb@gmail.com or phone: 303-689-2222 and schedule an appointment for their athlete. Each screen will take about 15 minutes. Please feel free to call or e-mail Djimmer with any questions.
