Welcome to the Great Lakes Region Volleyball Combines and College Volleyball Recruiting Program presented by the Great Lakes Region.  More than a combine, this is a college volleyball recruiting tool for athletes, parents, clubs and college volleyball!

NOTE: Space is LIMITED to ensure a safe and professional environment for attending athletes. While many similar events host hundreds of athletes, it is our intent to host a few dozen to give our players the best opportunity to succeed…and NOT be just another number. In addition, a brief discussion about RECRUITING will conclude each combine.

Attending athletes will receive an ONLINE PLAYER REPORT (OPR) with contact information, club information, academic information, college interests…combine measurements and combine VIDEO including individual position drills, small group drills and team play. All of which will be helpful towards tracking growth and development, strengths and deficiencies and provide reliable information that may be used to discuss realistic college expectations.

Athletes will have access to their OPR only and Great Lakes Region USA Volleyball Member Clubs will have access to their attending athletes only.

FURTHER, the Online Player Database (OPD) will be a COLLEGE VOLLEYBALL RECRUITING RESOURCE whereby college volleyball programs across the country have access to the entire Online Player Database 24/7. With a powerful SEARCH ENGINE, college coaches can select specific search criteria such as position, height, weight, approach touch, block touch, GPA…and once selected, all athletes meeting and exceeding those criteria will be listed. This WILL streamline the player search for college coaches and moreover, the OPD including the video, will be invaluable for those college programs with limited recruiting/travel budgets.

This system in its entirety, distinguishes this program as the Premier Volleyball Combine and Player Recruiting Tool!
