Can I have your attention please, women’s sand volleyball has emerged as an NCAA sport! Crazy right, who would have guessed beach volleyball would a sport you can play in college. As the season starts up, programs popped up at both big universities and smaller colleges across the country to be ready now. Schools competing in the sport will field five two-person teams per event, for a total of 10 starters per squad, and will participate in between eight and 16 events per year, depending on their budgets. Schools that are participants so far include Florida State, Georgia State, Tulane University, Texas and the University of Southern California and I believe we’ll many more for next season.
In the future I’ll be writing more about the NCAA women’s sand volleyball and its future within college athletics. Ever since the introduction of beach volleyball at the 1996 Summer Olympics, the sport has enjoyed a boom in interest and popularity throughout the world. Since then, professional organizations like the National of Volleyball League (U.S. pro beach volleyball tour) and the Federation of International Volleyball (international beach volleyball tour) have seen tremendous growth as the sport has spread from its roots in California.
WOW, I love this sport!
