As club volleyball season gets into full swing, it’s time to start thinking about getting some excellent volleyball video footage together to help with your college recruiting efforts. Of all the things you can do putting together an outstanding video compilation is the best thing you can do to ensure that coaches come to see you play.
You’ve got three primary options when it comes to filming games:
For skills videos it’s much less important to involve a professional in the filming, although getting help with editing your footage can be advantageous. The most vital thing is to make sure you’re demonstrating a wide range of abilities within your chosen position and showing off your consistency.
This means that you can’t just show your awesome cross court attack or your perfect high outside set, you have to show versatility. Hitters should display their ability to attack all types of sets, while setters should demonstrate their versatile setting repertoire. And make sure to repeat each skill 3-5 times in a row so you can prove your ability to consistently perform.
Remember that all of this video doesn’t do you any good if it’s not getting put in front of coaches, so consider joining a site like VolleyballRecruits.net that will put you in touch with college volleyball coaches and give you the best chance of getting recruited.
