Camp Details

Our two sessions at Soka University offer the full camp package. Training sessions consist of small groups led by a knowledgable staff. All aspects of the game are covered and groups are divided by skill level. The Soka campus offers great facilities for practices, dining, and lodging. Overnight and Extended Day campers receive the added bonus of fun evening activities to promote team work and new friendships. While indoor, 6 vs 6, style volleyball is the emphsis, the Nike Volleyball Camp at Soka University also incorporates sand volleyball sessions. Experince with sand volleyball adds new perspective by forcing you to play all positions with only one other player and offering the opportunity for far more touches on the ball. Not to mention it is currently the fastest growing NCAA sport.

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
