    Great Experience

    Learned a lot and got a lot of good feedback from coaches. I also think this camp is great at making sure there is a lot of space to play and plenty of coaches per player. Great experience again this year!

    Saw improvement

    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.

    Learned new skills

    It was my favorite volleyball camp. They taught me so many things new and how to improve the stuff I already knew. They made the camp fun. They gave us a lot of time to practice each skill.

    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.

    So much fun!

    My daughter loved this camp. Her skills improved throughout the camp through fantastic feedback from the coaches and we loved the written feedback at the end. She made great friends, as well. We would come back to this camp again next year! So much fun!
