Taking the Game to the next level
Club Volleyball is a goal unto itself. Players have a great experience, develop a love of a sport, play on a team, and understand the nature of being a fierce competitor. For those that want to continue this journey in college, Club Cruz offers a variety of ways to support our players towards that goal.
Footage of Play
Club Cruz incorporates video footage and analysis of both players and the team as part of the process of development. As a result, players have online video footage of themselves playing in practices as well as league and tournament play that they can use a basis for their college recruitment process. Video footage can be shared with prospective coaches easily over the web.
Club Cruz also offers a platform that allows our players to research what colleges they want to apply to, and also reach out to the coaching staff of those same colleges. The platform allows for deep searches, including region/area of school location, the division of play, size of the school, the emphasis of major, and more.
Once the school has been identified, the player can directly connect with the coach and provide video footage of themselves as well.
Realities of College Scholarships
While we hope that all players aspire to earn volleyball scholarships and play at the collegiate level, we recognize that only a small percentage will actually do so. In Northern California, indoor volleyball has an enormous following, with only a small relative number of scholarships available.
Beach Volleyball, however, is on the rise, and for the time being there appears to be a lot more opportunities for young women to get a scholarship to play.
Club Cruz will work with these tools and our connections to college coaches to support our players in their efforts to play in College.
