United States Collegiate Athletic Association

Just found out about another category of collegiate athletics - The United States Collegiate Athletic Association -

As I just found out about this organization, and cannot comment about scholarship opportunities or roster sizes.  I suggest VolleyFamilies look at this as another avenue to explore for collegiate volleyball.

NCSA Athletic Recruiting provided this summary of the USCAA:
