NCAA Women’s Volleyball statistics revolve around offense and defense specifically attacking and defending. The following data was recorded from the NCAA Women’s Volleyball stats from the 2012-2019 seasons and incorporated many different variables as shown in the excel spreadsheet. The data was filtered down throughout the project in order to display different importance for each specific topic.

Basic Terms

Attacking - When one attacks they are trying to hit the ball into the other court and achieve a point for their team

Kill - Getting the point through the attack that they have achieved

Dig - Receiving the attack that the other side tries to enforce onto the other court

Block - Achieving a stop on the attack that the other side tries to turn into a kill.

Errors Per Team Per Game

In the game of volleyball errors occur in many different type of ways some of these include attack errors, ball handling errors, blocking errors, reception errors, and service errors. The graph below shows all of the errors combined per team as a mean throughout a game.



Blocking is an important factor in volleyball and these 10 teams from the NCAA have been able to crush their solo blocks. Solo blocks occur when only one person goes up to perform the block and making it difficult to earn the point.


Digs are an important aspect of the game because it allows the team to defend the other attack attempts and gain the opportunity to gain the point. The following graph is in regard to all of the players that participated in the game and started for the team.
