Volleyball Camp Descriptions

Modified & Younger (Grades 6-8)

This camp is designed to teach volleyball skills to players in grades 6th-8th. This is a fun camp that introduces campers to the basic skills of volleyball. Campers will be grouped by skill level during the camps.

JV/ Varsity Skills Camps (Grades 9-10)

This camp has a format that caters to all positions of volleyball. During certain sessions, players will be divided up by position to work on specific position skills. During alternating sessions, players will be put on a team according to age and skill level and work on playing in a team format as well as practicing all the various skill sets included in the game of volleyball.

Varsity All Skills Camp (Grades 9-12)

This all-skills comprehensive camp focuses on challenging each camper to take their game to the next level. Campers will be divided by skill and work with the coaches to enhance their knowledge of the game and improve their skill set. Serving, passing, attacking, defense, blocking, setting, will be taught throughout the camp with many opportunities to showcase skills through competition.

Varsity - High Level Camp (Varsity Only!)

Open to girls entering the 9th-12th grades. This camp is a high-level, skills camp, designed for players who have a mastery of fundamental skills. Campers should arrive in top physical condition, with a positive attitude and serious work ethic. Training will focus on advanced technical and tactical aspects of volleyball.

Positional Skills Camp

Open to girls entering the 7th-12th grades.

The camp will consist of position specific training for setters, middle blockers, outside hitters, opposite hitters and liberos.

Position specific basic skills will be taught including the following:

All Hitters: Basic arm swing, footwork patterns, transition techniques.

Setters: Basic hand position and technique, movement patterns, transition patterns, setting combinations and set selection.

As we progress through the clinic, we will combine the groups for interactive learning.

JV or Varsity Team Camp

This camp's balance between competition and team training will give each team and coach a great opportunity to prepare for the upcoming season. Fundamental skill training and ample amounts of team situations and scrimmages will fill each evening. Each school will participate in a tournament on the final day of camp. Team Camp is open to high school varsity and junior varsity teams and each team must be accompanied by a coach.

All sessions will be lead by college coaches, with different colleges represented each night.  This is a great opportunity to learn from some of the best volleyball minds in the NorthEast!
