College volleyball offers athletes the opportunity to play against high-level competition while also studying at a University. Women’s volleyball is one of the most competitive sports to get recruited because it has really grown in the last decade and now there are hundreds of colleges that have volleyball teams.


Volleyball is played at all collegiate levels so you need to determine which program fits you best. College coaches cannot attend all the tournaments around the country so they rely heavily on discovering players using online recruiting networks.  As a student-athlete, it is imperative you build an online recruiting profile with an NCAA verified third party. This will ensure you maximize your exposure and be seen by college coaches. Your profile includes all the information college coaches need to properly assess you as a prospect.


  • Maximize your potential: Learn and apply the values that are useful in all aspects in life. College sport teaches you the importance of teamwork, leadership, goal setting, work ethic, time management, discipline and handling pressure.

  • Develop relationships and make connections: The network you create from your sport can open the door for many things in life including job opportunities, friendships and partnerships.

  • Live a healthier lifestyle:  Regular exercise helps boost immunity and contributes to overall physical health. 


The following table numerically summarizes the availability of women's volleyball scholarships across the United States. Note: This shows the number of maximum scholarships a college can provide. This is called “fully funded”. However, many colleges do not have the maximum and therefore the number of total scholarships can be less than shown in the table. Athletic scholarships at colleges change yearly with increases and decreases, so you cannot fully determine who has available scholarships except by joining a network like ImRecruitable where you can find out directly what is available from the coaches. 


In addition to a player profile, coaches will want to see a highlight video. Knowing what to do can be difficult, so we have listed some guidelines to follow when filming your highlight video: 

  • Combine game footage and skills footage

  • Film from 5 ft off the ground

  • Film from the side player is on

  • Do not follow the ball while filming, or move the camera around (a tripod is very helpful!)

  • Do not zoom in and out on the player.

  • Ball should always be seen.

  • Player should always be in the picture, despite where they are on the court.

  • Focus on the showcasing player


Depending on your position, your highlight reel should showcase your positional responsibilities. We have outlined what you should specifically include in your film for your position:
