Where do you recruit your players?
We've had beach volleyball players from Canada, Czech Republic, Texas, Florida, California...if you're good and a good fit with our current players, location doesn't matter.
How early would you commit to a player?
Each coach is different with the timing of making offers. Because we've had some grad students and transfer students, we've mostly been looking at a few high school seniors and juniors. Because so many sand schools are starting programs lately, there's no big rush to commit unless it's your dream school or you feel like it's too good of an offer to pass up.
Does ULM offer beach volleyball scholarships?
Yes, ULM has beach scholarships. We split them up to help our numbers, but many student athletes find academic scholarships that, when paired with a beach scholarship, make college very affordable.
Are ULM beach players able to play indoor as well?
Because of the way the NCAA ranked the sports, indoor volleyball players on scholarship can play beach, but not the other way around. Most of our indoor players try-out for beach, so we only need a few beach-only players to field a team. If the student-athlete is a walk-on (receiving no athletics-related financial aid) then it's possible to play on both teams.
