 Calling all college volleyball players! Come to Sevilla for a Spring, Summer or Fall term to study the Spanish language and culture whilst also playing competitive volleyball!

At SAIIE, we have cooperated with the well-renowned local volleyball club ¨Club Voleibol Rochelambert¨ to offer an academic-athletic program where competitive College volleyball players have the opportunity to study with us and train with the local volleyball team whilst still earning college credits. Club Voleibol Rochelambert was founded in 1987, and has teams in all age groups, creating an excellent network of Spanish volleyball players with whom to train and learn from.

 

PROGRAM STRUCTURE 

With the Volleyball program, students must choose a minimum of 12 credits from our range of academic courses during a regular semester (spring or fall), and during the summer term a minimum of 3-4 credits each session. We offer courses in Spanish language, Spanish culture, Liberal Arts and Business among other areas of study. Alongside their studies, they are also placed in the local Sevillian volleyball team, ¨Club Voleibol Rochelambert¨ or "Club Deportivo Claret - Voleibol" team for weekly training sessions and various friendly matches throughout the term. Due to the volleyball seasons in the US, we offer our Volleyball program to only female athletes in the Spring term and only male athletes in the Fall term. During the Summer sessions we offer it only to female student athletes.
