Katja Kylmäaho has her next sporting goal clearly in mind. She is looking for a new challenge in European volleyball and is counting on the support of VolleyNetWork.

Despite her only 22 years Katja has already gained a lot of experience on the volleyball court. At the age of 5 she started her sporting career in her home town Oulunsalo. Today, 17 years later, she is a national team player and a starting-six player of the reigning Finnish champion HPK Naiset. The Italian coach Luca Chiappini has been working for three years with the Finn and is enthusiastic about his setter:

“Katja is a hard worker and a good listener. She has very good skills and an extraordinary vision. She is the kind of player every coach would like to have in its team.” (Luca Chiappini)

In recent years, the intelligent playmaker has developed rapidly. With a lot of commitment Katja made it from a talented junior selection player to a team captain and leader of the record-holding Finnish champion. Winning the Finnish Championship in 2016 and participating in the Champions League as well as in the CEV Cup have made the defense strong setter to a confident athlete with international experience. Together with the Finnish national team, she prepares for the European League and the World Championships qualifier from May 2017 on, for the young Finn two more possible highlights in her volleyball career.

VolleyNetWork is looking forward to working with a very motivated and positive athlete. Katja is ready for new challenges!
