Recruiting Timeline

Below are guidelines on where you should be on your recruiting journey:

Sophomore Year

Sophomore year is a good time to start making a list of schools that could potentially be a good fit academically, socially, financially, and athletically. Stopping in for a campus visit and going to camps are obviously the best because you get a feel for the campus, dorms, and food, and can potentially meet the coaches and academic staff.  When you start to look at schools that are further away, you can have a comparison in mind based on the size of the school and the urban area.

Junior year

Entering junior year is a great time to become extremely proactive and begin contacting your top 10. Planning visits should become a little more serious. Women's college coaches have limited resources and want to know that you have an interest before spending time and money to come and watch you play. A short unedited game film is great to include in an email to begin the recruitment/selection process.

senior year

During your senior year is when the vast majority of volleyball players are making their college decisions. If you've been in contact with a lot of programs, you can definitely find a place to play. Programs contact us searching for seniors who decide that they want to continue their careers. Don't wait to be 'discovered', send emails and make phone calls and your hard work will pay off!

What college coaches want

First and foremost, college coaches are looking for tall and athletic players. College coaches are aware that they’ll be spending a lot of time on training and development for their younger players and it doesn’t matter if you’re not the best player on your team.

If you aren’t the tallest or don’t jump the highest, you can still play at a really high level if you’re really talented. No single physical stat can compare to being great on the court. 

which level of play is the right fit

The toughest question and the one we hear the most from our parents about college volleyball is ‘where does my daughter fit?’

Most of the time there isn’t a great answer because it depends on the college coach and what she values in recruitment. My best answer is to go and watch for yourself. Watching on TV or online is good, but attending live matches is the best way to get an idea. Go to several women’s college matches and go down to the court during warm-ups.

When you stand next to the players you can understand how big they really are, you’ll see how high they jump and how hard they hit the ball.
