This month, a4k would like to highlight an outstanding 17 year old athlete by the name of Noah Teetzel!
Noah has always remained active growing up taking part in skiing, judo, biking, swimming and soccer- just to name a few! He now remains focused on volleyball, his sport of choice. As the setter for his team, Noah is always willing to be up for 6am practices and put in the hard work needed to succeed! He is constantly improving and his team is even booked for the Provincials this year!!
Noah had this to say about his experiences playing volleyball, "Volleyball is my favorite sport, I've been playing it since elementary school but just recently started to take it seriously, and it is amazing. I'm always having fun out on the court, whether it is in practice or in a game. It also doesn't hurt that I have an amazing team to play with, and two magnificent coaches that are always there if I need them. I am always trying to improve and soak up as much knowledge as I can from my coaches and try to motivate my teammates to do the same. I hope to continue my volleyball career throughout post-secondary school."
Noah’s coach has no doubt that Noah will have a bright future in volleyball offering this quote, "Noah is very deserving of an athlete of the month award. He comes to the gym, works hard every day and is always open to advice given to him by his coaches. Possibly his strongest trait is his leadership on the court and in bringing teammates together.”
Noah’s mother has also taken note of Noah’s dedication to the sport as well as the benefits he has gained due to playing volleyball saying, “He enjoys traveling to volleyball tournaments and getting the exposure to the higher competition at club level. Noah is a good student and has found a good balance between his sports and school. Noah has gained many new friends from being involved in sports and I believe he will continue to be active his whole life due to his passion for being active and healthy.”
Noah’s devotion, hard work, leadership and team work skills are why we are proud to be naming him Athlete of the Month.
Congratulations Noah and good luck!!!
