Aspen and Alex play for the U17/18 Colts and have been training at The Capital for 3 years. In the summer the girls like to change up from their team training and do semi-private personal training sessions with coach Ian.

Aspen and Alex started playing volleyball when they were 12 and 14. They spent their first couple of summers training at the Capital separately, but joined forces last summer!

“I was a little nervous my first season because I was never in an environment like this, but once I got started I liked the atmosphere and now I’m really comfortable here” – Aspen“I find it very welcoming here, and the coaches are always very supportive. It was here that one of the trainers helped me fix my hip problem.” – Alex

Alex’s first summer at The Capital was spent in one-on-one personal training as she rehabbed from a hip surgery. A few differences the girls have noticed between training in the summer and team training during their season is the intensity. “It’s a lot higher pace in the summer!” – Aspen

In 3 words the girls describe The Capital as “Intense. Motivating. Home.”
