Getting recruited for beach volleyball at the NCAA level requires a combination of skill, hard work, and strategic planning. Here are a few steps that you can take to increase your chances of getting recruited:
Build Your Skills
Make sure to develop your beach volleyball skills by practicing regularly and working with experienced coaches. Play in local and regional tournaments to gain experience and showcase your abilities to college coaches.
Create a Highlight Reel
Prepare a video reel of your best performances and send it to college coaches to give them an idea of your playing style and abilities.
Connect With College Coaches
Reach out to college coaches and let them know that you are interested in their program. Attend college camps and clinics, and attend recruiting events to get to know the coaches.
Keep Your Grades Up
In order to play at the NCAA level, you must maintain eligibility by meeting academic requirements, so make sure to keep your grades up and maintain good academic standing.
Network with Former and Current College Players
They might be a great resource in providing you with knowledge and guidance on the recruiting process and what to expect from college-level beach volleyball.
Don’t just wait for coaches to contact you, take initiative and reach out to them.
Understand That The Recruiting Process Has No Guarantees
But, with hard work, dedication and by following the steps above, you will increase your chances of getting recruited for beach volleyball at the NCAA level.
It's also important to remember that college coaches have a limited number of scholarships to offer and a limited budget for recruiting, so it's important to be realistic about your chances and to have a backup plan. If your goal is to play college beach volleyball, it's important to find a program that fits your skills and goals, and that offers a good academic program that matches your interests.
