    Great coaching

    August 3, 2018: The coaches pushed my daughter to improve her skills while pushing other players around her. My daughter says that while attending. This camp she learned and improved more than her whole volleyball season. The time the camp ran was perfect allowing my daughter and others learn as much as they can in 4 days. My daughter is looking forward to attend another volleyball camp next year.

    Fun and challenging

    If your really serious about volleyball or learning how to play volleyball and all techniques, this is the volleyball camp to go to. The teachers are nice, you play fun games, you get to meet new people and whatever you need they will help you with. Even though its hard work, its completely worth it and you'll be happy by the end of the week.
