University & College Sport Associations

Four organizations — the NCAA, NAIA, NJCAA and CCCAA — control the sport teams of almost all American colleges and universities.  To get a volleyball scholarship, you’ll need to send documents to at least one of them.  Welcome to bureaucracy!

AVSR Global will help you understand how to work with the right organization in the right way.  Schools that offer you scholarships can be helpful, too.
