The Wisconsin Juniors has worked hard over the years to build relationships and network with colleges all over the country. We put in a lot of effort to make sure that every athlete who goes through our program finds the “right fit” for them. Our goal is to not only help our players go to college to play volleyball, ideally on college scholarships, but to also achieve the highest level of success they can in the classroom and graduate from the college they initially choose. This is why we stress the “right fit” with every athlete in our program. We pride ourselves in not only placing our athletes in great college programs, but also being able to educate our families and players about the recruiting process along the way.
Wisconsin Juniors has taken another step to raise the level of it’s recruiting efforts by becoming a partner with VolleyballRecruits.net. VolleyballRecruits.net is an online platform built specifically for high school players to assist them in streamlining their recruiting process. The platform and tools offered assist high school student-athletes in taking charge of their own recruitment. This not only gives them great access to every program in the country, but it also helps to keep them accountable to the process as our recruiting team is able to see all activity from each player that occurs on the platform.
