Nike Volleyball Camp at Rutgers University New Brunswick, New Jersey
Join us in New Brunswick, New Jersey for an outstanding Nike Volleyball Camp experience at Rutgers University.
Rutgers University offers four programs to fit your needs.
All Skills/Advanced- July 13-16
All Skills campers, ages 10-18, playing at any ability level will master the fundamentals, develop proper mechanics and gain valuable game play experience. Every aspect of the game is covered, giving you a solid skill foundation to build upon after camp. Players undergo a skill evaluation during the first camp session and are placed in groups according to ability level.
Advanced instruction is recommended for girls ages 14-18 entering grades 9-12. This intense, challenging program stresses position play, team techniques and physical conditioning. Campers will be expected to participate in a thorough skill evaluation on the first day and will be divided into groups by ability level.
Position Specialty- July 16-18
The Position Specialty program is designed for players who want to specialize in the Setter, Hitter or Libero (Defensive Specialist) position. Campers must select just one position to specialize and train in during camp. They will receive intensive instruction on technique and proper form for this position during the camp session.
High School Team Camp- July 23-25
Rutgers University is proud to offer a High School Team Camp this summer. Team Camp provides focused group instruction and competitive team play for players of all levels.
