The 22-year-old Finn is part of the Finnish national team and is a starting player of her current club LP Kangasala.

Roosa Laakkonen is 1.93 m tall and has an attack height of 3.17 m. She therefore has optimal physical and athletic qualities for an effective block and quick attack play. She completed her volleyball education successfully at the training center of the Finnish Junior National Team and in some of the most renowned club teams in Finland.

Besides her qualities as a player, the sympathetic Finn is characterized by her positive emotional nature on the volleyball court. She can thrill and motivate her team mates.

In 2014 Roosa won the Finnish Cup competition with LP Kangasala and in 2015 she won a silver medal in the Finnish Championship. Roosa played an important role in both competitions and was named the MVP of the cup final. She has also gained international experience in the CEV Cup and Challenge Cup (2013-2017).

Last season Roosa Laakkonen was coached by Virginie De Carne. The former world class player describes her protege as follows:

“Roosa is one of the most potential middle blockers in Finland. She has very good blocking skills on fast as well as on high balls. In first tempo combinations she is reaching high on every kind of set. She is a physically very strong athlete with no injuries. Roosa is a very positive athlete and gives a lot of energy to the team. She has a hard working mentality. Roosa never gives up and you can see and hear her joy on the court. As a coach I love working with her, she makes progresses all the time and is always ready to learn new things. Great athlete and great team spirit.” (Virginie De Carne)

VolleyNetWork is looking forward to representing a player who is already intensively preparing for the challenges of the coming season and is aiming her way towards a successful professional career.
