Christian Honer is 20 years old. He began his volleyball career as a Junior in High School (in 2011), although he was homeschooled his whole life. Before then he was focused on Golf, Baseball and Basketball mainly. Once he found volleyball, he knew that was the sport for him. He started playing at a local park, not competitive at all. He would ride his bike to the park hoping someone would ask him to play. Once he started getting in groups at his local park, people noticed him getting better and advised him to try indoor and try going to more competitive places to play. Throughout the year, Christian spent his time in the sand playing 2 v 2 in local tournaments. His senior year of high school was his first full year playing indoor club. He was a setter for Club Arrowhead, and played basically every position possible for Liberty High School. After his indoor school season, he decided to move out to California for the summer to pursue his dreams on becoming a pro beach volleyball player. His first year out there he got acclimated to the sand, wind, etc. He played in a few big events and got some good experience. Fast forward to this past summer, Christian moved to California for the summer again. He has traveled all over the United States competing at a very high level. He ended up getting a 3rd in 2 Open tournaments which gave him his AAA rating in CBVA which is the highest rating possible. He’s extremely excited for the 2015 beach season!
