Örebro Volleyboll har gjort klart med ett nyförvärv innan transferfönstrets stängdes den 15 december, klubben har letat en tid och tillslut blev det klart med Hannah Ammerman från USA. För den volleyboll inbitna så känner de flesta nog igen hennes efternamn, båda hennes bröder Ryan och Dalton har spelat i Sverige och för Hylte/Halmstad.
Väldigt duktig såklart och hon kan gå på både vänster och högerkanten, hon har en bra servemottagning och anfall, hon kommer att höja nivån inte bara på vårt spel utan även på våra träningar. Hon kommer att passa i gruppen bra för hon har samma driv och ambitionsnivå som de andra spelarna har och är här för att utvecklas och jobba hårt för att vinna.
I have played volleyball my whole life! I started out at Front Range Volleyball Club and Chaparral High School, then taking my career to the next collegiate level at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs.
I would say my best skill in volleyball is my serve receive/passing. I take a lot of pride in how much time and effort I have put into this skill. Being as tall as I am I knew that all coaches would see me as a serving target so I put it as my top priority to ensure that I was the best passer on my team wherever I was.
Volleyball is actually how my parents met. They both were playing in an adult league in Alaska which lead to them getting married and having 8 children who all have the same passion. My oldest brother Ryan won two National championships at the University of California Irvine and went on to play professionally in Europe and eventually to the National team here in the United States. My sister Sarah played college volleyball at the University of Texas A&M and went on to play professionally in Europe for many years after. My brother Dalton played college volleyball at the University of Long Beach California and also went on to play in Europe for a few years after as well! I have another brother named Luke who played collegiate volleyball at Orange Coast Community College for a few years. I have a sister currently at the University of Pepperdine on their womens team and has big aspirations to play overseas just like the rest of the family! I grew up watching my older siblings play at all different levels pushing me to be a better player and aspire to play at the highest level possible!
What I know about Sweden is that both of my brothers, Ryan and Dalton, played on a Swedish team a few years ago and they told me its beautiful! They said it is dark and cold in the winter but it is an amazing place to be!
My expectations for volleyball in Sweden is to bring everything that I have to offer to help this team win out in the league. I know that this team is very competitive which is exactly the kind of program that I am looking to be apart of. I know I can bring a lot to this program and am excited to see what is to come!
I chose Orebro because after talking to the coach on the phone, I loved the expectations that he talked about for his program. His coaching style seems like it will compliment well with my skills. The competitive drive that this team has is ideal for a program and something that I am always looking for.
My goal with the season is to use my skills to push this team to be better and win. I only want the best for this program so to win out in their league would be ideal. I know they were close last year to winning gold so I want to help this team achieve that goal! I know there are a lot of tough teams in the league so I am excited to let the competition push me to be a better player.
My goal for volleyball is to play at a high level for as long as my body will allow me. I want to build on my skills and be the best version of myself. I can’t wait to be apart of the Orebro program and help them win!
