There is often a lot of questions or even mystery about how to get a scholarship or play at the next level of volleyball after high school or club. Here’s some easy to follow guidelines on what you need to do to to be successfully recruited.
College coaches are people first. They are leaders, and “business owners” or “bosses” of their own organizations. While there are some similarities between these coaches, they often have different systems, or methods of looking and evaluating prospective athletes. Some college coaches look at players when they are in 8th grade or earlier, but these are VERY rare exceptions. For the 1400 programs that offer a scholarship to play volleyball, most of the recruiting process takes place in the sophomore, or predominantly the junior year in high school.
