If you are looking for camps or clinics - see if one of the colleges you are interested in has a camp. It is a good opportunity to spend time at the school and see if you would like it. It also gives the coach at the school a chance to see you play.

Nike runs good camps at various college campuses. A good local camp is Runge Volleyball Camp.

Playing at the next level....

Get started on contacting colleges NOW... sophomore year is a good time - it's never too early to start!

“The biggest thing is to get out there,” . “There are so many kids that have the dream and the goal to get to the next level. Realistically, not everyone is a Division One player, but there are other levels that play as well. It is important to be honest with yourself and realistic. Research as many schools as you can and get to Camps. Focus on your business in the classroom to make yourself more attractive to the schools."

-Work on your grades first-they matter to EVERY school

-Make sure you like the school aside from the volleyball aspect

-Be your own advocate, email, send video, let the coach know you are truly interested

-Know the program and the school- look at their websites

-If you play club send your club schedule NOW

Believe in yourself-you are good and you can play!


  • Please look up the Finnish word "SISU" and think about what it means to you currently and how it can help  you become a stronger individual and a better competitor
  • Keep working out and playing volleyball as much as you can - be creative, pass to yourself, swing against a wall, etc.
  • Watch matches on YouTube and listen to the commentator's feedback - great place to learn more about positioning yourself, strategy etc.
