Learn new skills

My daughter had a great experience at the Nike Volleyball Camp. She could not stop talking about the different skills she learned in camp. And most of all she could not wait to utilize those skills at her school practices and games.

Focus on core fundamentals

One of the best camps available. It was great for our daughter to meet other volleyball athletes and learn from each other as well as the coaching staff. The preparation of the staff is awesome. The focus on core fundamentals is great. I would recommend to anyone to attend and improve skills. I've seen the improvement in my daughter.

Money well spent

This camp was a wonderful chance to meet other girls that shared my passion for volleyball, and to work on the basic skills that sometimes get looked over in an average school practice. It was also helpful talking about being scouted, and what to do after high school. I learned a lot and know that when its a Nike camp, its money well spent.

Huge Confidence boost

"I could see a lot of improvement in Emily skills and her confidence. She made the 9th grade A team, before camp I'm not sure she would have made the B team. She will be going back next summer to get ready for Varsity."

Great Overall Experience

"The Texas Wesleyan Volleyball Camp was one of the best experiences of my life. The small group made for better one on one coaching and we got to know everyone there better than we would have if it were a large camp. I can't wait to come back next year and get even better than I did this year."
