Playing college volleyball is the ultimate goal of many Vegas high school players and players around the country.
There are more than 330 womens college volleyball teams in Division I, and there aren't very many places where you can find inspiring news and information about all the teams in one place.
I am trying to change that, especially for Vegas players looking for information on what to expect after high school.
My goal is to provide interesting information about NCAA volleyball life, the players and the people involved in it.
Be inspired by my profile of these four pro volleyball athletes and 2020 Olympics hopefuls were famous college volleyball players named to the Volleyball Magazine All American list.
Every year Volleyball Magazine, one of the most popular volleyball magazines in the United States publishes a list of their picks of the best players in the country who they think should be called "All American.
You will find a series of videos where you get a sense of who the players really are, how they think and the type of hard work they put in to be the best player on the court.

College volleyball photo shoot day.
Its the one day before preseason competition begins, that you get to put makeup on, do your hair and come to practice...really pretty, why?
Most NCAA volleyball teams hold media day hosted by the university's sports information department where team, individual player and small group pictures are taken for posters, autographing signing sessions, team calendars and more.
Each preseason, NCAA volleyball teams take team pictures to produce volleyball posters which feature the team's new season schedule.
Volleyball posters for collegiate teams have traditionally been a way to showcase the new season schedule.

Schedules For Preseason Tournaments
Every year after collegiate Division I teams finish their training season in August they participate in four weeks of preseason tournaments.
Starting from the last week in August until the last week in September teams travel across the country to compete against non-conference opponents in tournaments that help prepare players for their regular season competition.
Many teams will host one or two of their own invitational or classic tournaments annually where they invite in-state and/or out-of-state non-conference rivals for two or three-day events which gives them an opportunity to practice the tactics and schemes they learned during training camp.
