Prepare for school tryouts

My daughter went to this camp without any friends and had never attended camp. She made new friends on the first day and absolutely loved this camp. She learned so much. She just made the freshmen volleyball team at her new high school. This camp helped her prepare for tryouts. Thank you!

Helped boost confidence

My daughter was very hesitant at first to join. It took a while for us to convince her that she can do this and that this will help her a lot. We're glad that she agreed with us. Surprise...surprise...she had a blast! She can't stop talking about it. She wanted to sign up now for next summer's camp. The camp definitely helped improve her skills. But most importantly, the camp helped boost her confidence.

Will be back next year!

My daughter attended this camp after only 2 years of volleyball. While she was no where near the top in terms of skill, her deveopment was incredible. More importantly, she had so much fun that she is already making plans for next year.

Great Overall Experience

My daughter attended the camp as a beginner in volleyball and without a friend with her. The staff made her feel comfortable right away. We loved the idea of the suite with a couple of "ready made" friends. They suites were assigned so she did not have to try and pair up with someone immediately. My daughter said the instruction was excellent, games were fun,the water balloon attack was a highlight. As parents we loved the tournament at the end of the week. We were very impressed and hope that Nike brings the camp back to Davenport next summer!

Get one-on-one coaching

I was a camper at davenport for volleyball and it was awesome! I had gone there last year and all the changes were great. I loved how we were separated by skills. I also liked that we got some one on one with the coaches and if I had a question it would be answered easily. I would go to this camp in a heartbeat!
