Athletic Information

 

Selina started playing volleyball as a middle blocker at V.V. Alterno at the age of 5. Even though she didn’t have the length for a middle-blocker she has the ability to jump very high so her reach was higher than the others. Eventually she switched to the setter position and she was quickly noticed by the coaches of higher age groups. 

 

Selina took part in the Dutch National Youth Championships for the last 5 years and became national champion. She is currently playing for the second women's team in the 'top Division' at her club V.V. Alterno. She also made her debute for the first womens team that plays in the highest womens league in The Netherlands (Eredivisie). In December of 2016 Selina and her team won the Engie international tournament, a tournament where the best (inter)national teams compete.

 

Selina is a 5’9 setter that can jump very high. The benefits of her ability to jump very high is that her block is very strong and if she gets the opportunity to attack in a match it is a strong one. She is also known for how fast she is and she can always give a overhand set. 

 

Selina practices 14 hours a week and plays games on the weekend.
