    I would ten out of ten recommend this to any one who wants to go beyond the level of High School and Club volleyball! The best part is that the Assistant coaches get really involved with the teams! Such a great atmosphere and the staff and players are just amazing!!

    Fun experience

    They remember the campers, create a fun experience, are super positive and teach the kids where they are skill wise. I have been so impressed with how my child is remembered year after year.

    Liked the drills and scrimmages

    Excellent combination of skills/drills, and scrimmage/play to apply the skills/drills. Coaches are very knowledgeable, and know how to impart their knowledge.

    Go if you want to improve

    This camp is very fun but challenging. You definitely sweat a lot and learn a lot as you go. The coaches are super nice but they know how to give good advice for the whole team as well as one on one. You should go to this camp if you want to improve or keep your skills up.

    Can't wait to do it again

    I had such a great time at the Cal Berkeley camp, I can't wait to do it again next summer. I'm so happy I learned to hit, set & block better and I really feel I have a better understanding of the game. I can't wait to try my new skills out on the court back at school:) I was really inspired by the Berkeley team coaches. I've always felt a little awkward cuz of my height ( I'm tall for my age), it was really awesome to see how tall the real players are and how athletic and strong they are. Thank you for the fun experience!

    Loved the Coaches

    Personally, the coaches are one of my favorite parts when I go to camp. I've never had coaches who care about you so much and want you to improve. They take so much time to instruct us on everything.

    Great camp

    They have excellent coaches and instruction. They create a sense of camaraderie amongst the players and they care for each student individually. They are always available to answer questions for me as a parent if I have any and they are very easy to reach if I need to contact them immediately.
