PHIL CAMPBELL – Northwest Shoals Community College (NWSCC) Patriots Athletic Director Taylor Franks announced today (7/9) that the college will add women’s volleyball for the 2025 fall semester.
“We are thrilled to add volleyball to our cross country teams on the Phil Campbell campus,” said NWSCC President Dr. Jeff Goodwin. “We look forward to hosting matches on campus and have our tremendous community come and support them.”
The arrival of the Patriot volleyball on the Phil Campbell campus in fall of 2025 and of the gym’s renovation will mark the completion of the first phase of renovations on the Phil Campbell campus. The gym renovation is scheduled to finish by December of 2024. The volleyball team will join the four other Patriot Athletic teams, baseball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country and softball, in the Alabama Community College Conference (ACCC).
The Patriots have not competed in women’s volleyball since fall of 2010. The College began the search process for a head volleyball coach today. Applications can be completed at https://nwscc.edu/college-departments/human-resources/.
According the Patriots Athletic Director Taylor Franks, volleyball has a history of being very successful at Northwest Shoals. “Volleyball is popular in our state and we have proven that we can compete at the highest level,” stated Franks. “We have six ACCC volleyball state championships to our credit and with the talent in our area, I truly believe we can get back to that level. However, more important than championships, we are looking to forward to welcoming and nurturing student-athletes that truly understand what it means to be a part of the Patriot family and a community that wants to help each other be successful in life.”
The Patriot volleyball team will consist of 14 scholarship student-athletes and walk-on opportunities will be determined by the coach.
