June 16th 2019 BVNE College Recruiting Showcase

Here at BVNE, we’re a family run business. We have our own college student who has been through the same process, and we do our best to make sure we conduct ourselves to the same expectations we would for our own family. This weekend we saw a lot of players perform well, show independence and responsibility, and fielded a lot of questions about our players. You might have heard “so and so please report to the front desk” announced a few times over the speakers. This is a good thing, and usually meant that a coach needed information about a player, so we called them up to ask the question that was not have been filled out completely on the registration forms.

We would like to thank everyone for placing your trust in us to bring you a quality event. Most of you travelled from far and we hope to see you again before your player’s college career starts. Please consider our clinics and showcases from July to October this year, and our additional events throughout the year. Don’t forget to check out our highlight video at the end of this email!

All our results have been placed on our website so that you can refer to them. All results have also been placed in our ranking system so you can track your progress.

How to prepare your game for the collegiate level

There are lots of ideas here, and lots of opinions from many sources. We believe the bottom line is these four points.

  • Play up, maybe lose and learn
  • Hit the gym, the right way
  • Get agile and use your head
  • Work with a private trainer

Many players play in their age group, compete and grow against their direct peers, and continue learning. When the time comes those players will play the next level up with all of their peers. Who says you have to stay at that level? There is no reason you can’t play up and improve your skill level against more challenging players. If nothing else, at minimum a few times a year everyone should play up. There are tons of 14U and 16U players that have there A, AA, and even AAA ratings. You won’t win every game, but if you show up ready to learn and strategize, your game will improve and with a coach to help improvement will come faster.

There are many high school level players who think they can hit the gym once they make it to college. OK, so the college program has trainers and equipment, but so what? You should know your way around a gym. You should know how to protect yourself from exercises that push your body too far. It’s not fun to have your college career sidelined because you have a season off. Before you show up in college you should be able to have an intelligent conversation with your trainer so you can get more out of your workout.

Defined muscles can be fast and agile, they can also be big and slow. This is where the right muscle training comes in, and the right trainer. You can find the right trainer for you, someone who will train you on getting your own program so that you can manage on your own and not spend hundreds of dollars every month all year long.

Training with your peers and your club is great but get the extra reps you need with a private coach to work on one to two skill sets and master your skills.

All of this will probably lead to one emotion, being uncomfortable. Whenever someone goes outside of their comfort zone, it often means there is an opportunity to grow. Take advantage of that. Ask questions. Learn from your competitors and team mates. Improve!

Remember, there is always someone who is training harder, longer and going the extra mile to get results.  Coaches are looking for girls who are physically fit, athletic, coachable and react well under pressure.  Not always do coaches recruit players who win.  There are looking for the complete package.  Dedication plays a big part of making to college and even more dedication to play in college. BVNE wishes you all good luck on your journey!

Beach volleyball player Eden McCoy Committed to USC!

Endless Summer Volleyball Club Player Eden McCoy recruited by USC. Eden was gracious and thoughtful in her response to being committed. “There aren’t enough thank you’s in the world for this one, but I’ll start with USC, my coaches, my family, and my amazing club @endlesssummervbc. Wouldn’t be here without you. Fight On.” This was hard work and dedication on McCoy’s part to achieve such a notable accomplishment. BVNE sponsor King of the Beach® wrote more about Eden below, and you can see her commitment photo here.

BVNE College Recruiting Showcase Events

Back in 2014 when We Are Volleyball Elite first started into the world of college recruiting and beach volleyball, it was still new. Beach volleyball was still part of the “indoor program” and dedicated beach programs simply didn’t exist. Then the NCAA changed the game and made beach volleyball a championship sport and scholarships and dedicated beach programs were started at colleges nationwide. This is when we first started in beach volleyball college recruiting, back in 2014 as the sport was just about to enter its prime!

College recruiting showcases are now popping up all over. It is exciting to see the sport grow, but also important to spend your recruiting showcase dollars with a seasoned team of professionals. BVNE showcase tournaments are well organized, provide transparency during the event by using computerized seeding, pool play, and playoff brackets. This helps ensure that the event is operated smoothly and reduces the challenges that come up with running events on paper, especially when players.

There’s one more thing….it’s the “trade secret” of our events. BVNE founder Daron Forbes has designed our events to provide value and solve problems for collegiate coaches. While the details are our trade secret, the results of player exposure at BVNE showcases is clear. We truly appreciate the emails we receive from players and parents, especially a recent email from a family in Canada who were surprised at the exposure to college coaches their player received at our event. She recently committed.

We may be biased, but the sport of beach volleyball seems to be on fire at the moment with growth happening all over. New beach only volleyball clubs, new beach tournaments to help players learn and grow, more new tournaments to help players reach the highest levels. It’s a great time to play beach volleyball!

See you on the beach,

The BVNE Team
