Recruiting Tips

  • Register with NCAA and NAIA
    • Must have clearing house number
  • Take the SAT and ACT early and often
  • Video all matches and tournaments
  • If you receive a questionaire from a college, fill it out and return it asap
    • Even if it is not your first choice school
  • It is never too early to start talking to schools. College coaches want to talk with players not parents.

There's hundreds of thousands of girls that want to play volleyball in college.

What makes you stand out?

Lacey started playing volleyball at the age of 12. She has played six seasons of junior high, high school, and open level club volleyball, the last three at East Side Blaze Volleyball Club out of Queen Creek, Arizona. She was the starting libero on the 18U Black Blaze Team for the past three years.

In addition to playing, Lacey also coaches recreational volleyball after the club season ends and last season coached the Blaze 12U Red Blaze Team. "Being a coach has given me a different perspective on the game and taught me so much more about the sport I love" says Lacey. She has recently committed to play Division 2 college volleyball for Coach Kelly Bureau at the University of Arkansas Monticello.

She says "playing volleyball has given me the opportunity to meet and play with many Olympic volleyball players both indoor and beach.  My favorites were Olympic Champions Kerri Walsh and April Ross who I played with at a beach camp at Huntington Beach, CA." 

Juliette spent her senior year as the starting setter for Williams Field HS and East Side Blaze VBC. She also juggled her time as Student Council member as Secretary. In college she plans to major in Biology - Veterinary.
