Volleyball in the USA

How many scholarships are there?

In the United States, volley­ball is mostly offered to women, espe­cially in high school. This is the reason why there is such a large discrepancy in the number of men’s and women’s teams.

Univer­si­ties with volley­ball teams:

  • Men: 43
  • Women: 852

Full scho­l­ar­s­hips per team: 20

  • Men: 4,5
  • Women: 12

How is the training in the USA structured?

Prac­tice takes place on a daily basis. In addi­tion to the work­outs on the court, specific strength and endu­rance work­outs are inte­grated into the sche­dule, which makes the trai­ning very inten­sive and some­times a bit more deman­ding than you may be used to. However, we will makle sure that the trai­ning regime of your US team will suit you. Due to our constant contact with the volley­ball trai­ners, we know the strengths and weak­nesses of the volley­ball programs.

What does a season at college look like?

The women’s season begins with the start of the fall semester in August and is there­fore iden­tical to the season in Europe. The men, on the other hand, do not start their season until spring. The high­light of both seasons are the national cham­pions­hips, which are played in playoff mode in December (women) and May (men).
The games are some­thing very special. The atmo­s­phere in the arena is gigantic due to the fully occu­pied stands. In addi­tion, tele­vi­sion often broad­casts live.

Requirements for your scholarship

The level of compe­ti­tion in college volley­ball is high. Female players should have played in one of the Top 3 divi­sions in their respec­tive home country. In order to attract big schools, however, appearances at the highest level would be a decisive advan­tage. Male players should play in one of the highest divi­sions as well. However, coaches often choose their athletes based on the poten­tial adn the video footage. There­fore, it is possible to get a sports scho­l­ar­ship if you do not meet the above criteria yet.
