Instrumental in making the JV team
Our daughter had one year of travel ball experience and our intent was to expose her to as many clinics and camps to provide her with the necessary skills to allow her to make the high school volleyball teams as a freshman. We sincerely believe her experience at the Francis Parker Nike Volleyball Camp was instrumental in making not the freshman team, but the junior varsity volleyball team.
Couldn't wait to play more
My daughter came to camp never having played indoor volleyball. She left saying she couldn't wait to play more! Thank you Nike Volleyball Camp for a great week!
— Parent '14
Get ready for try-outs
