Nadja Velis

2020 | PA: Doylestown
Recruit Profile
Team-first, multi-sport varsity athlete with top grades and fun-loving, competitive attitude. Brings versatility, intensity, and resilience to the field.

Growing up, I always had fun playing basketball and field hockey, but when I started middle school I explored and fell in love with lacrosse. I enjoy the team approach and the ability to contribute to a common goal, but I truly love and thrive on competition. In addition to my competitive spirit, my strengths are my hand/eye coordination and quickness. I'm comfortable and enjoy playing a variety of positions- midfield, defense, and attack- though my focus is defense. I recently joined my new club team, NXT 2020, and I play on my high school varsity team, Germantown Academy, where I lettered as a freshman. In addition to lacrosse, I also play varsity field hockey.

Academics are very important to me. In 9th and 10th grades, I made the Dean's list and was recognized with "High Honors". My favorite classes this year are accelerated Spanish 4, honors bio and bio-chemistry. In my free time, I love traveling, snowboarding, hanging out at the beach, listening to music, and being with my family and friends. I also love working with kids, whether I am babysitting, volunteering at a local community school program, or volunteering as one of my school's Patriot Ambassadors.

Thank you for taking time to read my background! I hope to join a college where I can be challenged in class and contribute on the field!

I have coached Nadja for the past two years, she has blossomed into a true defender. She sees the field; her defensive slides are perfectly timed. She is a communicator. She works hard on the field, often "setting the bar" for others. Nadja is a TRUE TEAM player. Highly recommended!

Nadja is an aggressive, smart, and a great communicator on the field. She has no fear when it comes to defensive positioning and transition. She is one of the most coachable players I have ever had and is always asking questions trying to improve her game.

Nadja is a fierce competitor with field sense, tight stick work, and speed. She's got a nose for ground balls and will hunt the ball down on defense and on the circle. During games I felt confident in pressure situations when she had the ball. Smart leader.
