Far Westerns Recruiting Combine

Championship Combines is focused on creating the opportunity for players to demonstrate their volleyball skills and for college coaches to evaluate recruits in a quick and economical manner.  The Combine format leans towards individual/position/group drills, as opposed to team play.  This allows the college coaches the ability to see multiple repetitions of specific skills, while also reducing the risk of injuries which can often occur in team competition.  Specific information about each combine can be found on each registration page.


  • January 6th from 6:30 p. to 8:00 p.m. 
  • San Mateo Event Center.
  • Open to any high school age male volleyball player.
  • In Partnership with the Northern California Volleyball Association.
  • This is a VIDEO COMBINE – All players/drill/play will be filmed and recorded (men’s college coaches are in their compeitive season).
  • The recording link and player contact information will be sent to every Men’s College Volleyball program in the USA.
  • A Recruiting and Combine Update will be provided for Players and Families!
  • Cost is $120.00 

Because of the limited budgets of Men’s College Volleyball programs and with Men’s collegiate season starting in January, this is a Video Combine

Rosters are open for editing until 9:00 PM, Friday, January 6, 2023

Building your rosters requires use of both SportsEngine and TM2

Step 1: SportsEngine

Confirm that all your players/coaches on your roster are assigned to your club.

  • In your “Directory” search for each Player and Coach.
  • Click on their name, then click “Memberships”
  • You should see your Club Name in their Memberships. If you do not see your club name, you will need to send them a club assignment request. You cannot build your roster in TM2 until all players and coaches are members of your club in SportsEngine.

Step 2: TM2

Once all of your players and coaches are members of your Club in SportsEngine, you can build your rosters in TM2.

  • Click your “Members” tab.
    • Click “Import member”.
    • Click the big green button.
  • Once the members are imported, start building your roster by searching  the names of your players and coaches.
    • Please note, if you have previously built your roster, you need to delete it and start fresh.
    • There may be multiple accounts for each person that will populate; be sure to choose the account that says “Has USAV Membership” in green.
  • Once you have your rosters built, click on “Validate”, and the system should validate your roster.

If you complete these steps and TM2 is still flagging players/coaches, it is because they are missing a requirement in SportsEngine like SafeSport, Waivers, Background, etc. There are some rare cases where you have everything, and it still flags them. That is an SE internal system issue at that point.

Hotels - Support the Sport

Help us Support the Sport!
Volleyball tournaments such as these require a lot of space – and that means Convention Centers. But there is great deal of competition for those spaces and it can be impossible to get the space needed for our events on popular weekends unless we demonstrate to host cities the clear benefits our events bring to their local economies.
For your benefit and ours, we’ve partnered with Tournament Housing Services (THS). THS helps teams by getting them access to better room rates, making it more convenient for teams to manage their hotel reservations, coordinate room blocks (e.g. keeping room assignments close together), manage occupant lists, etc. THS benefits the NCVA by securing long-term hotel contracts and tracking hotel bookings, which help us demonstrate our positive impact on local economies and guarantee the success of future events.
Help us Support the Sport – book your accommodations through our housing partner, THS.
