While we guide our athletes through the recruiting process, it is helpful for athletes and parents to understand the new recruiting process and to be prepared. We expect our athletes to engage in the recruiting process and work towards their goal of playing in college.


As of May 1, 2019 new NCAA D1 recruiting rules went into effect for Beach Volleyball. These new rules put limits on the communication between a recruit and a college coach before the end of their sophomore year of high school. The goals of the new rules are to curb early recruiting and give athletes the opportunity to make more informed decisions.

College coaches can no longer communicate with student-athletes (or parents) before June 15 after sophomore year. College coaches will be allowed to discuss freshman or sophomore athletes with club coaches, but those conversations are limited to the coach being interested in the athlete, nothing else can be discussed.

NCAA member schools have adopted rules to create an equitable recruiting environment that promotes student-athlete well-being. The rules define who may be involved in the recruiting process, when recruiting may occur and the conditions under which recruiting may be conducted. Recruiting rules seek, as much as possible, to control intrusions into the lives of student-athletes.  Learn more…
