America and sports are impossible to separate from each other. Game day in the United States is much more of a day out, preferably with the entire family. It is one of the reasons why experiencing sports in the United States is so completely different. Especially with volleyball this is the case, which is broadcasted on regional and national TV. Thousands of fans and students watch games, go crazy and create an amazing atmosphere to play in. Heart rates and energy levels go through the roof!
This is the best adventure of my life. An experience who I will cherish for the rest of my life!
- Britt Klein Lankhorst, Florida State College
As a student-athlete you are absorbed in the sporting environment on a daily basis. You practice, travel and play games on an elite level. And in between all these sessions and games, you have access to the best facilities and specialists that make sure you maintain and improve your condition levels.
Besides the busy sports schedule, your study is demanding as well. As a student-athlete you will need great discipline for starters. Together with your academic advisors and coaches you will be developing your own schedule, which allows you to perform on the field and in the classroom.
Are you ready to play volleybal and study in the USA?
The United States is completely different when it comes to experiencing sports. So is the structure of volleyball. In the United States, you do not play for a club but for a college or university. Your team consists of roughly 20 players that you will be with for the best part of the day. As a team, you will be playing against other universities in your conference. The ultimate goal? To win the conference and play in the national championship, taking on the best teams across the United States.
Personal growth on an international stage
The United States is very welcoming towards fresh volleyball talent. Over 1.800 universities in the United States offer scholarships towards talented players looking to combine their studies with volleyball. College volleyball is the perfect way to become a better player, both physically as well as mentally. You will build a network of international friends and maximize your capabilities. In addition, you will obtain an accredited degree and put the foundations in place for a successful career. For many athletes, college volleyball is also the predecessor of their professional careers.
