Requirements for a Volleyballscholarship in the USA

Female Players:

If you have experience in any of the top 5 leagues in your country and have a good attitude towards working hard in practice, you will have a good chance of qualifying for a volleyball scholarship. Certainly, height and athleticism/jumping ability are important as well.

There are very limited chances for Libero players unless one is a stud on the national team.

Male Players:

Unfortunately, there are only a few schools offering Men's volleyball/ providing scholarships, therefore only top level players will qualify.

American coaches not only pay attention to your athletic achievements, they equally look at your academic performance since you first have to be accepted at an American college or university in order to be eligible to play for their team. In addition to a completed High School Diploma, each international student has to take certain tests. The type and necessary results of these tests depend on the specific college/university as well as the league/division you are applying for.

  • Many American coaches plan the formation of their teams and therefore the distribution of scholarships about 1 to 3 years ahead of time and thus start looking for adequate players at a very early stage.
  • Only a limited number of scholarships (depending on the league, division and college/university) are available every year.
  • Some academic tests can only be taken certain times throughout the year, in particular places and on specific days.
  • The application process, registration with the NCAA Eligibility Center, Visa, etc. takes time and should be well planned.

For these reasons, it is important to apply as early as possible. Please contact us about 1-2 years BEFORE finishing your High School diploma. In some cases, last minute scholarships become available, but it is rather an exception. If you have already started at a university in Europe you still have a chance but are not as attractive for American Coaches as you may lose some years of Eligibility. In addition, some leagues have age restrictions.
