The GCU women’s club volleyball program provides an opportunity for students to stay competitive in the game, meet new friends, travel to different states and take pride in representing their university, while focusing on earning their degrees. We strive to provide a positive, energetic student experience and create memories that last a lifetime.
Currently, the GCU club volleyball program has two teams and looks to expand that quickly to create more opportunities for student involvement. Women’s club volleyball consists of an offseason in the fall and a competitive season in the spring. We compete locally against in-state junior colleges, four-year colleges and club programs. We compete in leagues and tournaments as well as in-house competitions. Travel to Nevada, Colorado and California for intercollegiate competition provides unique, positive team experiences and an opportunity to promote Grand Canyon University to the public.
We are excited about the future of GCU women’s club volleyball as we work toward postseason play and the opportunity to compete at the Club Volleyball National Tournament.
