30th Annual Mass Patriots College Playdate
New Location and Opportunities
The Mass Patriots Volleyball Club Playdate is an opportunity for talented girls' high school volleyball players to display their skills and athleticism for prospective college coaches. The Playdate is geared towards high school seniors and juniors who plan to play collegiate volleyball. Talented sophomores and freshmen players are also encouraged to tryout.
***Due to conflicts with dates and gym rentals - we will not be hosting our Annual MassPatriots College Playdate this year***
How it works:
On Sunday, November 27th, the players will be put through a battery of physical drills and skill tests and will be ranked based on their abilities. These ranks will be totaled and the top 72 scorers and additional 12 libero players overall will be invited to attend the Playdate on Sunday, December 4th at UMass Boston. These players will receive a t-shirt with a number on it that will correspond to the number of their resume in the college coaches' booklet. The college coaches will receive a booklet containing each players' resumes.
The Playdate itself is being held at UMass Boston this year in conjunction with the NCAA Division 3 coaches meeting and clinic. The college conference will host recruiting clinics for players and parents to answer questions about the NCAA rules, how a player goes about being recruited, and what college coaches are looking for in recruits. Check in starts at noon during which time, UMass will be hosting its Division 3 All Star game on the Main Court for players and parents to watch. The playdate will start its first matches at 1:30 and run until 5:30.
