Haven’t had time to peruse social media for all things #volleyball? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! We’ll give you a round-up of the best volleyball posts from around the Internet each week. Make sure you’re following @usavolleyball on all social media!


It was a USAV star-studded dinner in Italy as members of both the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams got together while competing with their European club teams!

Family dinner expanded by a few this week! My heart and tummy are full (with tiramisu). 🤗😍🎉

While competing overseas with their club teams, many U.S. MNT teammates find themselves on opposite sides of the net. This week it was Erik Shoji vs Ben Patch and Dustin Watten vs David Smith! But even if they’re rivals, there’s always time for a #USAVselfie!

Game against @benjaminpatch not complete without a selfie

Two-time Olympian April Ross was named to the 2018 USC Athletic Hall of Fame Class earlier this year. She, along with the rest of the 2018 class, was honored at halftime of USC’s homecoming football game vs Arizona on Nov. 5.

Former Washington standout Krista Vansant had her number retired by Husky Volleyball this week. #16 joined the rafters alongside 2x Olympian Courtney Thompson’s #3. Vansant lead the WNT to gold at the 2015 Pan Am Games and 2015 Pan Am Cup.

Legends. #KV16

Zac Efron stopped by the USC weight room to visit with the defending NCAA Beach National Champions! Color us JEALOUS!


Penn State Men’s Volleyball shared this gem of a #tbt this week. U.S. MNT middle Max Holt was a member of the Nittany Lions team from 2006-2009.


Don’t worry, kid. We get shy around him too. Micah Christenson posed with one of his littlest fans, while competing with his club team, Cucine Lube Civitanova in Italy.


Congratulations to all the USA Volleyball members who will continue their volleyball careers as student-athletes at the next level! We’re so proud of you and wish you the best!
