Exclusively for WorldofVolley and LZ Sport, coach John Speraw talked about the university volleyball league and how playing in this league can help players in their future careers. He also gave a few advices on how to get recruited and become a player in some elite university teams in the USA.


John Speraw, is an American volleyball coach. He is the Head Coach of the men’s volleyball team at UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles) and the Head Coach of the United States National Olympic volleyball team.

Coaching is the real strength of the United States system which is very different than the rest of the world.

One of the reasons why we were able to compete for the Olympic medals had a lot to do with the level of coaching that goes on at the Universities in the United States.

It always been a mystery to a lot of countries, why the United States National Team is so successful at the international level with the little talent depth that we have. I don’t know all the answers, but I think the educational background, that a lot of these athletes have, is a benefit.

Exposure and academics are the most important in recruiting process.”
