Athlete Characteristics

We of the Mizuno USA MICHIGAN Volleyball Club are constantly “on the hunt” to identify athletes with the following characteristics (and much, much more):

1. An athlete who has a mindset to improve each day:

  • Do you want to improve, or do you need to improve?
  • Are you coachable?  How so?
  • Program-first attitude. 

2. Realize that the top athletes in the world have and embrace a structured plan for success. 

3. Top class athletes give maximum effort both cognitively; in their actions and skills.

4. Practice, practice, and practice.  We don’t think you have to; we know you have to!  Playing time is predicated on practice performance.

5. The school you attend has absolutely no bearing on our evaluation, selection, placement, training, and competition decisions.
