Some of the top NCAA players will descend upon California for a weeklong training camp with USA Volleyball.

USA Volleyball announced during the weekend the 21 players selected to the U.S. Men’s Collegiate National Team.

The U.S. Men’s National Team staff helped determine the roster based on the players’ recent NCAA performances and their potential in future years within the USA Volleyball pipeline.


The U.S. Men’s Collegiate National Team will participate in a training block on July 2-8 at the national team’s training facility in Anaheim, California. The players also will be able to train alongside the U.S. Men’s National Team, which that week will be playing FIVB Volleyball Nations League matches in Anaheim.

Grand Canyon led all schools with three selections to the U.S. Men’s Collegiate National Team. CSUN, Purdue Fort Wayne and UC Irvine each had two players make the team.
