The California Collegiate Volleyball Conference is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation committed to providing opportunities to college students who compete each year in collegiate club volleyball in California. The CCVC’s roots stem from Gary Colberg who founded collegiate club volleyball in 1973. Collegiate club volleyball in California is made up of nearly 90 teams divided into three regional leagues known as the Northern California Collegiate Volleyball League (Men), Northern California Collegiate Volleyball League (Women), and a league in Southern California. Each league operates independently of the CCVC and creates its own rules governing eligibility, benefits, recruiting, and playing seasons. The CCVC provides information about collegiate club volleyball in California, assists with expanding the sport at the club level in California, selects the California All-State team, and promotes California rankings. The CCVC also works to extend playing opportunities to segments of the California population that traditionally have been denied playing opportunities due to their gender, ethnicity, and economic condition. In furtherance of that goal, the CCVC provides scholarship awards to student-athletes.
