We recognize 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. SandLegs 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 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
For a few of our membership options, we provide 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.
For select memberships, we provide provide the option of having college recruiting video reviewed and edited by former and college coaches who have hundreds of hours of experience with video review of potential student athletes of all kinds.
SandLegs 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.
