    Well, first of all I play volleyball and noticed that there is no IC Volleyball for men...so I wanted to ask if I could get recruited for club volleyball. I am very interested in the academy and I could be compared to other people, I could be competitive in all except GPA cause I have some C's but still have a 3.5 GPA (and I am planning on getting up to 4.0) So the prep school could be a good option, if I am recruited...

    Also, what is the difference between club and intramural other than club is more competitive?

    BTW im a Junior in Puerto Rico

    I actually play club volleyball here in the states, ever been to nationals, maybe we've played/will play you guys? I play for Sports Performance from Illinois. What about you? Borinquen Coqui, Torrimar, Gigantes, Envol, Pitirres? Any of the big names I normally know?

    Anyway back to the post....unfortunately you can't get recruited for a club sport, even though I want to go to USMA and have been selected many times for USAV High Performance and would consider myself good, it's just not possible. However, the team still competes at a decently high level, so if you still enjoy it and want to keep playing, good place to do it.

    The difference between club and intramural is club teams play against other schools while intramurals are just among the school itself.
