Recruiting Process

The recruiting process is an exciting, often stressful and hectic process! Finding a college that is the right fit for your athlete takes some time and research. Fortunately, there will always be colleges that will fill all of an athlete’s requirements. Our job is to help find the colleges where your player can be part of a competitive team and receive an excellent education. EXCEL offered our first 18s teams in 2012. In 2012, all of EXCEL's graduating seniors received and accepted offers to play college volleyball. Since 2012, EXCEL's graduating seniors consistently are offered scholarships to play at the collegiate level.
