This is Sun Devil Volleyball

Sun Devil volleyball began in 1973 and opened its program with a 21-0 record and an AIAW Championship under storied Arizona State coach Mary Littlewood. In its 50 seasons, ASU has made 19 NCAA Tournament appearances, the latest coming in 2023. Volleyball has two AIAW Championships (1973, 1974) and reached the NCAA Sweet 16 in consecutive years (94-95). Individually, ASU has 10 AVCA All-Americans in its history and has 10 Academic All-America nods. ASU volleyball has had Olympians pass through its program and former greats who still own the highest marks in conference and NCAA records.


Volleyball has consistently tried to incorporate the fans and creating a fun environment for the student-athletes in the traditions. ASU brought back its victory bell. Following a victory, the bell is brought on the court to be rung by elected Sun Devil athletes who helped make the victory possible. The team also participates in “Green Matches” in which they team up with ASU environmental efforts to have a completely sustainable match. Additionally, young fans are often invited down to the court to meet the team following a match.

Coaching Staff



Volleyball has the opportunity to play in two arenas: Desert Financial Arena and Mullett Arena.

Desert Financial Arena, the home for Sun Devil men's and women's basketball as well as volleyball, gymnastics and wrestling, is one of the nation's finest collegiate arenas. Constructed in the spring of 1974 at the cost of $8 million, the 14,198-seat facility also plays host to graduation ceremonies and a variety of concerts and shows.

Mullett Arena is the home of Sun Devil hockey, wrestling and volleyball, as well as the Arizona Coyotes. Construction on the arena was completed in 2023. In addition to hosting numerous sports, the 5,000-seat multi-purpose arena has an adjacent community ice rink, which serves as a public venue for the university and community.

Student Athlete Development

Arizona State Athletics offers a plethora of opportunities for student-athletes to excel while at ASU and to prepare for career upon graduation. The Office of Student-Athlete Development has full-time employees to assist student-athletes with academics, eligibility and life skills. ASU’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is an organization that enhances the collegiate experience by providing educational, leadership and service opportunities that exemplify and exhibit the spirit and essence of the Sun Devil student-athlete. All activities encompass this vision and help to further maximize human potential in the pursuit of comprehensive excellence.
