Top questions about volleyball combines 

What is a volleyball combine?

A volleyball combine gathers a large group of athletes to perform individual or position-specific drills. Combines do not include group or team play. Athletes will leave a combine with verified volleyball stats and a good indication of how you compare against other athletes.

Why attend volleyball combines? 

For all high-school athletes that want to compete at the college level, attending combines play an important role in the college recruiting process. You will receive verified measureables that can catch the attention of top recruiters. With only around 6 percent of high-school volleyball players going on to play in college, the exposure to coaches that volleyball clinics provide could make the difference between being recruited and slipping under the radar. 

What’s the difference between combines and training camps? 

Volleyball combines are typically a more skill-intensive event that is put on specifically so that athletes can document and showcase their skills to potential recruiters and coaches. 

Although elite-level volleyball players will often already be on a coach’s radar, there are many circumstances where combines are necessary for these top-level athletes to generate direct interest from major schools.
