      07/16/2015 - Volleyball Factory Advanced Summer Training at Lake Placid - Kaitlin has a good foundation to build on. We would like to see her continue to work on increasing power on her attack and on her defensive range. With her attacking, working to have a more "live" wrist will help her control both her attacking and serving. Continuing to work on her arm swing and contacting fully extended on her serve and as a hitter will also help. Kaitlin gives a quality result nearly every time when in serve receive and defense. If Kaitlin can continue to work on the small technical details of each skill, she will be a nice contributor to the right team.
      02/04/2015 - College PREP - Baltimore, MD - Kaitlin is working to build on the foundation she already has as a player. She showed balance in all skills with the ability to continue to grow and work to elevate skill. She ranks above average at her position, but there are still signs of youth. I would like to see her compete and train at high level in order to see how fast she can make corrections and how easily she could get to the next level of play for her position. Defensively, Kaitlin can work on getting her feet to the ball better, finding the passing angle quicker, and being more aggressive in the back row (don't be afraid to step in front of someone to pass the ball). Offensively, she can focus on getting a full approach by transitioning off the net and getting outside of the court. I would like for her to be more vocal on the court and I am sure that will happen as she gains more confidence. Overall, Kaitlin is still improving as a player but is on the right track as she works to smooth out her play.
