    Improved a lot!

    July 23, 2018: She absolutely loved playing the last day. She met so many nice girls and had lots of fun. It was a great way to connect and I’m glad she had the best experience speaking it was her first year. She improved on a lot of skills and worked her rotations down.

    • 5/5.

    July 23, 2018: I had a really fun time at the Nike volleyball camp at Macalester college. Going to this camp taught me a lot of new things and helped me improve on things that I already knew. It also taught me things outside of just volleyball that will help me in college and in life. By going to this camp I met new friends that I will hopefully see again because I will most definitely be coming back to this camp next year.

    Saw improvement

    July 27, 2015: My two daughters, who have had some volleyball experience through park and rec programs, both really enjoyed the camp, and felt their serving and setting skills really improved during the course of the week. And, they both had a great time at the camp in general.

    Fun and challenging

    I would recommend this camp to other people because it was fun and challenging but at the same time the coaches worked us hard and pushed us to do our best.

    Focused on skills

    I wouldn't recommend it to friends unless they knew it was strictly about skills. Most of my friends are like me in that they value being part of a team.

    Perfect instruction

    I highly recommend this camp! Staff is very friendly and helpful. Perfect instruction for my beginner level daughter. Also, it is nice for the beginner students to see the more "advanced" in action for inspiration!

    Knowledgeable staff

    This camp is well organized with a knowledgeable staff. Campers are not grouped by age they are grouped by ability, which makes for a more positive experience.
