Shonte Seale secures contract to play in Asia


Share post:

Barbados’ vice-captain Shonte Seale has earned a fantastic early birthday present, signing to play professional volleyball in Asia.

The high jumping Seale, who turns 25 on February 9, landed a two-year-old pro contract to play for Amaty, the largest city in Kazakhstan which could see the former Springer Memorial all round athlete competing in the Asian Cup.

Seale plays for domestic team Deacons and her last outing for Barbados was the 2023 Caribbean Zonal Championships where the outside attacker played a key role in Barbados taking a bronze in Suriname. She also represented Barbados in junior and senior netball.

“This is a dream come true for me after completing my scholarship at Norfolk State University where I graduated in Intra-Disciplinary Studies with a minor in Accounting. I had signed with Image4sports and my agent is Ira Andusenko from the Ukraine. 

“My contract with the agency is for two years and I will be playing until April with the option to extend it for another year which would begin in August. I had signed up with a site online and then over 20 agents started reaching out to me. . .” (KB)
