Rich Kern’s Recruiting Timeline is the most comprehensive timeline for getting recruited. If you are already a junior or senior don’t despair! Just pick up the process at whatever stage you are at.

If you plan on trying to play at the D-I or D-II level it is VERY IMPORTANT that you are registered with the NCAA Eligibility Clearinghouse (your high school guidance counselor should be able to help you with that information). Since there are no athletic scholarships given to D-III schools, athletes wishing to be recruited by D-III schools do not need to apply to the clearinghouse.

In order to get recruited you need to create a volleyball bio detailing yourself, your positions, your awards, etc. The bio should include:

  • Standing Reach
  • Approach Jump
  • Club Experience
  • Clubs/Organizations
  • Hobbies
  • Other Sports
  • Awards
  • GPA
  • References

Make a list of the colleges you are interested in attending and send those coaches a letter of introduction. In that letter, enclose a copy of your club or high school schedule for this year.

Create a skills DVD that you can send to potential coaches. You can either do it yourself or have one professionally done.
