    Improved her skills

    July 17, 2018: The Nike camp helped my daughter improve her serving and overall skills to prepare her for High School try-outs in August. The camp was very structured and effective for achieving each individual objective. I would suggest adding an additional day on to the camp that they are there longer.

    Learned a lot!

    July 17, 2017: The experience of having a great team and she had a lot of fun. The great thing was everyone got playing time. The tournaments and scrimmaging was a great experience. The extra activities were also very fun for her. It was a bit warm in the gyms this year. Maybe having some fans would be good for next year.  The coaches were great. They really showed you the correct way to do something and they really had knowledge of the sport.  I also like the fact that they were hands on. In conclusion the whole experience was fun and we learned a lot, and you guys should keep doing what you are doing.

    Positive reinforcement and positive attidutes

    My daughter has limited exposure to Volleyball through a local club. This camp not only increased the level of instruction she was able to receive, but she also benefited through positive reinforcement and attitude instruction. Additionally, there were many coaches who all had impressive skill sets and credentials which allowed her to look up to them on many levels. I will absolutely sign her up for next year and look forward to it.
