Welcome to GCU Women’s Club Volleyball

Travel Team

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.

GCU Women’s Club Volleyball consists of a fall preseason schedule that includes scrimmages against teams like Arizona State as well as matches against local community colleges; and a competitive regular season schedule 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. Our GCU Women’s Club Volleyball Travel team heads to Nevada, Colorado and California for intercollegiate competition, which provides unique, positive team experiences and an opportunity to promote Grand Canyon University to the public. We hope to build off the successes we enjoyed in 2017-18, which included winning both the Las Vegas Invitational and the Mountain West Volleyball Conference Championship.

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.
