The newest intercollegiate sport at North Greenville University, men’s volleyball, will hold at open tryout for eligible players on Saturday, Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. – noon in Hayes Gym on the NGU campus.  

Prospective players must have remaining eligibility within NCAA Division I athletics, and should have a high level of high school or junior club volleyball experience.  

Dr. Fred Battenfield, the program’s first coach, is currently seeking players to earn scholarships to fill out the first recruiting class for the fall of 2014.  The team will begin competition in Conference Carolinas in January of 2015.  CC is the only NCAA Division II conference in the nation to sponsor men’s volleyball.  NGU is a member of Division II, but since men’s volleyball does not have a separate championship for that level, the Crusaders will compete in Division I.

Prospective players can contact Dr. Battenfield at (864) 977-2076 or for more information.
