About Hidde van der Leer

Hidde started playing volleyball at the age of 11, going to a senior team at the age of just 14 made him improve much faster. Hidde is a fast learner and motivated to improve every day. He currently plays in the men’s second team of Sliedrecht Sport (top division) and trains with their first team, performing in the Eredivisie (highest level in the Netherlands). 

Currently, Hidde mostly plays as a middle for his teams. But he also has the ability to play as an opposite, to make an impact as well. 

Hidde uses his height well, as well as in attacking and blocking.  He has a great timing which he uses to set up a strong block and hits sharper corners of the field. In addition, he moves very quickly sideways along the net so that he uses his length of arms to close the block . 

His float serve also gets some serious speed to attack various positions. 

During his time in the States, Hidde wants to improve his overall volleyball level and become the best volleyball player he can be. We believe within the right environment and with some good coaching, Hidde has the qualities to develop as a big college volleyball player. 

Hidde graduated high school in June 2023, in the HAVO level, the second highest level of high school in The Netherlands. He is currently in a gap year and start in the Fall of 2024 as a freshman. Hidde is mostly interested in majoring in psychology or something related.
