Jamie Smith: I have grown up surrounded by volleyball. Both my parents play, as well as my brothers, so from the time I could first walk I was surrounded by the sport. Ultimately, over time I fell in love with the sport and have been hooked ever since!
Jamie Smith: I chose Iona because of the sense of passion, pride, and integrity you can find on campus as well as on the volleyball court. The academics and athletics are both rewarding and challenging and the people there make you feel welcomed and as if you are at your home away from home.
Why do you train off the court?
Jamie Smith: I train off the court in order to improve my athleticism and play on the court. Training is a critical part of being an athlete because the work you put in in the gym becomes prevalent on the court. Also, I train specifically because I want to be the best version of myself that I can be as a volleyball player and student of the game.
Why do you travel 30 minutes to Revolution Athletics?
Jamie Smith: I travel a seemingly long distance to Revolution Athletics because I know that when I go to train there I am surrounded by some of the best strength and speed coaches around. Everyone there has the same goal of wanting to be the best athlete they can be. Also, Revolution Athletics provides me the opportunity to learn the proper ways to train and to push myself to be better in not just athletics but in life.
