Initially started as a competitive alternative to Intramurals and the Intercollegiate Team, the UCSD Men’s Club Volleyball Team has grown into a nationally recognized force. Prior to 2001, games were casually scheduled against local teams and were played very similarly to open court (no refs, scoreboard). In 2001, UC San Diego joined the Southern California Club Volleyball League (SCCVL.org). In the past several years, UC Slam Diego has grown to become a powerhouse in the world of club volleyball. The Tritons have qualified for the top division at Nationals for the past seven years, including a third place finish in 2013. For two years now, two teams have been fielded to compete under the title of UC San Diego.
Each year we compete in several league tournaments in Southern California. This year we will also travel to UCLA, UC Davis, Las Vegas, and ultimately St. Louis, MO for Nationals.
If you wish to join the UC Slam Diego squad, we highly encourage you to come out to Open Gyms and then Tryouts. We will also be inviting NCAA players who did not make the team to join when their rounds of cuts take place.
