Interested in Playing Volleyball in College?

SRVC provides comprehensive college placement and recruiting assistance to its membership in the form of seminars, clinics, player promotion, and personal consultation. What steps do you need to take to get started? First, let your coach and your parents know that you want to pursue playing volleyball in college. SRVC and our Technical Director and Recruiting Coordinator, Joe Bonner, will help and guide you through the rest.

  • Players and Parents must be active through the entire process
  • Register with the NCAA Eligibility Center (see resources tab)
  • Attend an SRVC Recruiting Seminar
  • Formulate a list of colleges that you may want to attend – focus on academics first (after all, you are going to college to get a degree and start on your career - volleyball is an added bonus); review your chosen schools with Coach Joe
  • Use the resources listed below to gather coach's contact information for your target schools
  • For Maximum Exposure we recommend completing a Player Profile on one of the sites listed below to increase the exposure a player receives throughout the recruiting process.
  • Work with your coach to get personal statistics
  • Upload videos
  • Attend a SRVC Skill Videos session
  • Gather and edit game footage; upload to your various college recruiting accounts
  • Send an introductory e-mail to each school on your list of schools:
    • Include your name, height, position, graduating year, high school and club
    • Be sure to express interest in their school and volleyball program
    • Address the coach by name to start the e-mail (e.g., Coach Smith)
    • Include your profile and/or a link to your website
  • Work with Coach Joe to assist in contacting recruiters and coaches on your behalf
  • Consistently check in with coaches with updates on your schedule (i.e., when and where you are playing) and/or team; building a relationship with the coaches is a key to success; be sure to pay attention to their teams’ results and try to attend games if possible
  • Check on financial aid (see resources tab)
