A little bit about Chase Teal
Hi, my name is Chase Teal, I am 17 years old. I attend Falls Lake Academy in my hometown of Creedmoor, North Carolina. This fall I will be headed to Columbia, SC to play beach volleyball at the University of South Carolina!
I’ll be majoring in Nursing, which is something I have always had a passion for.
I WILL BE HEADED TO COLUMBIA TO PLAY BEACH VOLLEYBALL AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA!
What made you start or what inspired you to start playing beach volleyball?
I was kind of a test dummy for my club. My indoor coach wanted to start a beach club and asked if I would try it out. I fell in love. I was 10 when I started indoor and 11 when I started playing beach.
What do you do before every time you step onto the sand to play?
This might sound crazy, but at the start of every match I have to go to the end line, run up and touch the net and back twice! That gets my mind right, then I stretch out a bit and get loose.
What is your favorite tournament site to play?
California for sure! I love playing at Hermosa Beach or Manhattan Beach. The atmosphere there is just so awesome!
What do you want to study when you go to school?
I am going to go to nursing school to become a pediatric nurse. My parents are both in the medical field and I spent a lot of time when I was younger with the elderly. I watched how nurses interact with and help people, and knew that was what I wanted to do with my life.
If you could have one superpower what would it be and why?
Oooh that's a tough one. I would want to be invisible. I think it would be cool to sneak up on people.
What is something you are proud of yourself for?
I am most proud of my ability to stay positive and look at the bright side of things.
