With a low camper to coach ratio and a knowledgeable coaching staff every player is given the opportunity to improve their game and gain valuable volleyball instruction. The small groups are decided on the first day after an evaluation to insure that the information, intensity, and competition is at the appropriate level for all in attendance. This program is suited for all experience levels. The Saint Vincent campus gives a taste of what its like to train like a college athlete.
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.
What's included in the fee?
Overnight campers: Dormitory housing on campus and all meals are provided.
Extended Day campers (9am-9pm - except on ﬁrst and last day): Lunch and dinner are provided.
24-hour supervision is an important feature of every NIKE Volleyball Camp. Staff members reside in campers’ quarters and participate in all activities.
Volleyballs: Molten Volleyballs may be purchased when you register for camp for an additional $15. Volleyballs must be paid for at the time of registration. Campers do not need to bring a ball to camp and purchasing one is optional.
