College Recruiting

Red Rock will be hosting a Collegiate Coaching Camp open to ALL players regardless of club affiliation. This event will take place on June 11-12, 2016 for the class of 2017, 2018, and 2019.

Red Rock recognizes that many of our athletes would like to extend their volleyball career beyond high school and junior club volleyball and into college.  We take great pride in helping our players achieve those goals. Refer to our College Bound page to see the college commitments of our athletes, past and present.

College coaches begin their search for their prospects as early as a player’s freshman year.  Red Rock players receive this critical exposure due to the history of success from our teams, coaches and individual players at both the regional and national levels.  We frequently welcome and host a number of collegiate coaches who will often request to attend our teams' practices and training sessions each year.

No junior’s club program is complete without informing both players and parents about the important topic of college recruiting.

    College Recruiting Relationships

    Our College Recruiting Coordinator and the rest of the Red Rock staff have developed close relationships with numerous college coaches throughout the years, which gives us insight into the type of players they typically recruit and what their program is looking for in prospective athletes. We have found that this insight gives our players competitive advantages in getting recruited.

    Player Profile Pages

    Red Rock provides the option of having online profile pages containing information about each player such as awards, accomplishments, playing experience, vertical jump, a personal section, video links, and the athlete's plans for her athletic career. The profile page will be posted on our website enabling each player to send it to the college coaches of their choice via email or by letter.

    College Costs

    According to the The College Board, Annual Survey of Colleges, the total national average costs for four-year colleges in the year 2013-2014 for tuition, fees, room and board was the following (approximate): $19,000 (public in-state), $32,000 (public out-of-state), and $41,000 (private). In the state of California, the average cost in 2013-2014 for a California resident at a UC school was approximately $32,000.

    College Acceptance Rates

    The college acceptance rate throughout the nation is dropping every year and even more so at the top universities, many of which reached all-time lows in the past year. Many of our athletes have found that playing volleyball in college helped them get accepted into the college of their choice.


    NCAA Manual

    Red Rock does not make any guarantees to players about earning full scholarships or being accepted to the top school of their choice.  We simply offer all of our players the opportunity to train, compete and high level of exposure necessary in the steps toward being recruited.
