What are volleyball hype videos?
To hype something up means to promote or advertise while building
excitement about a particular person, place or thing.
Pro football teams have done this for years when they hyped excitement
around the upcoming Super Bowl event.
College football teams started creating sleek video productions to
advertise year end bowl games like the Rose Bowl and the Orange
It wasn't long before Division I teams followed their lead.
Now Division I volleyball teams, have video production teams within
their university's sports information department that produce volleyball
videos created to hype up or build excitement about the players and
the event they're participating in.
Each year, the production of these videos is getting glossier, sleeker and
Some universities like Wisconsin and Minnesota have amazing video
production teams that produce movie quality videos made to produce
excitement around almost every team accomplishment.
Hype videos come in the form of "intro videos"...these are created
especially for home games when the home team gets introduced to
their fans...the "intro video" begins..when the stadium house lights are
darkened and the video is played as the home team players are
introduced and run into the stadium.
There are hype videos created for the playoff season.
These are played only during the conference playoff games once the
regular season games have concluded and teams are now competing
in their conference championship playoff games.

progressed all the way to the final rounds of the NCAA playoff brackets.
