Recruiting Resources & Templates​

 

A major part of the recruiting process is educating yourself on the process and researching schools and programs. Here are some helpful links, as well as templates for your key materials and example highlight videos.

General Links​

 

Templates & Resources

  • Highlight Video - Remember that your highlight video is the coach’s first (and often second or third) chance to evaluate you. A great highlight video can get you on a coach’s “watch list” and should hopefully entice a coach to see you live! If you're using Hudl to make your video, check out the Athlete's Guide to Hudl for some great tips and tutorial videos.

  • EXAMPLE HIGHLIGHT VIDEOS:

Opposite Highlight Video 

Middle Blocker Highlight Video #1

Middle Blocker Highlight Video # 2

Setter Highlight Video

Libero Highlight Video

  • Volleyball Resume - This is not a mandatory, but can a good way to compile all your basic volleyball and academic stats in a one-page format (with a photo) so your emails can show your personality more. If you have an online profile, you can also direct coaches to that. 

Sample Volleyball Resume 

 

  • College Process Timeline - This is for your personal use. Some people use Google Sheets, some use pen and paper, but we would recommend figuring out some system that keeps you organized and on track with deadlines. You’ll also want a college list to track which coaches you’ve reached out to and feedback/camp dates/etc.

  • Email to Coach - Make sure you ALWAYS personalize these with the coach’s name and the name of the school. Even better - add something about their season, a match you watches, or something from their team's social media to show you did your research! The template below is pretty standard - we recommend that you personalize it into your own words and add more content to SHOW YOUR PERSONALITY - but make sure to include all the important academic and athletic information and a link to your highlight video. You can attach your volleyball resume if you have one, but it’s not required.
