About Club Volleyball
Purdue Men's Club Volleyball allows Purdue undergraduate and graduate students to play volleyball at a competitive, intercollegiate level without a varsity level time commitment. Tryouts are held at the beginning of each semester and teams are divided based on skill level. Players come from all over the country, not just limited to the Midwest. The first and second teams travel to tournaments across the Midwest and to the NCVF National tournament each spring. The club is an NCVF and MIVA recognized program and consistently finishes in the top competitive divisions of the region and nation.Competitive History
2012 - 2013:
The team had one of the most talented groups of freshmen try out in the club's history. The combination of youthful talent and veteran experience led the team to a 3rd place finish at the Michigan State Hardwood Classic in November 2012, one of the most prestigious first semester tournaments in the nation. This led the team to a number 21 ranking in the nation at the start of the spring season.
Purdue hosted the Big Ten Round Robin in February 2013 at the gorgeous new Corec facility on campus. The team placed 3rd in the Big Ten Championships, losing two extra point sets to eventual national number 1 Illinois, and then placed 3rd at the MIVA Championships, ahead of many nationally ranked teams including undermanned victories over tenth ranked UW-Milwaukee and Lakeland College.
Nationals in Dallas, TX in April 2013 was the competitive culmination of the season, where Purdue earned victories over UC Davis, Sacramento State, Cal State Fullerton, and the eventual National Champions, Fresno State. Fresno's only loss in the entire tournament was to Purdue on day one. Purdue earned a number 4 seed in the gold bracket where they lost a close match to UC Irvine, earning a 9th place national finish for the season. Setter/opposite Kyle Schwede was named an Honorable Mention All-American for his performance at Nationals.Practices and Commitment
Practices are held twice to three times per week in the basement gym of the Corec. Players will pay dues at the beginning of each semester to cover costs of uniforms, travel, hotels, and tournament fees. Dues are usually around $250 per semester, which is significantly less than club costs in high school. We encourage you to like our Facebook page, Purdue Men's Club Volleyball, and come to callouts and tryouts to find out what the club is all about! It's a great way to stay in shape, compete in the best sport there is at a high level, represent Purdue University, and meet great people along the way.
