The Santa Clara University Men's Club Volleyball team competes in Division 1 and is part of the very competitive Northern California Collegiate Club Volleyball League (NCCVL). Cal Poly San Luis Obispo – in our league - was ranked #1 in the nation at the end of the 2020 season. SCU Men’s Club Volleyball 2020-2021 team tryouts will be determined with guidance from SCU Club Sports and Campus Recreation, Santa Clara University, the NCCVL and USA Volleyball. Team practices will begin after tryouts and tournaments/matches start when the season officially begins (TBD) and will finish in late April, 2021 following the National Collegiate Volleyball Federation Championship in Minneapolis, MN. In April 2019, four hundred eighty collegiate club teams competed in the USA Volleyball NCVF's in Denver, Colorado (https://ncvf.org/) and the team traveled in conjunction with the SCU Women's Club Volleyball team (also D1) to the event. The SCU 2019 Men's VB team placed 19th in the Nation in Division 1AA. The 2020 NCCVL season ended abruptly in early March due to COVID-19 and the remaining scheduled matches, League Championships and 2020 National Collegiate Championship were canceled.
Prospective players should contact team leadership (see 2021-22 MVB Leadership) during summer/fall 2020 to be added to the team interest list, attend the team information meeting and MVB specific open gym sessions, and participate in team tryouts (all TBD). During pre-season and regular season, we plan to practice three nights per week and tournaments/individual matches are held on weekends at SCU and throughout central and northern California (Cal Poly SLO, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, Fresno State, San Jose State, UC Santa Cruz, University of Pacific, Sacramento State, Sonoma State and others). Our team is comprised of players who have both played for well-respected high school teams/club volleyball teams, and enthusiastic novice players that have less experience but diligently work to increase their skills and add to our great team camaraderie.
As with all club sports at Santa Clara, the Men's Volleyball team is partially funded by the University, and all other funding comes from member dues, fundraising and donations. If you would like to help support our team, please see our Men's Club Volleyball Giving page or contribute to our team through the SCU Club Sports page on SCU's Day of Giving (please note Men's Volleyball on your donation).
