USA Volleyball is excited to announce the 28-player U.S. Women’s Collegiate National Team – Anaheim roster, which consists of current collegiate players.

For many of them, it will be their first time representing the USA and getting a first look at international volleyball. Additionally, it will coincide with other national team training blocks in Anaheim, giving both players and coaches a great chance to learn from the best. I am really looking forward to this training block and working again with Team USA.”
