    Supportive coaches!

    July 19, 2017: My daughter enjoyed playing the games because she could put together all that she was learning. She is new to volleyball and found the environment encouraging. The staff and other campers kept positive and supportive attitudes. The staff did a good job of dividing the campers by their skill level and then teaching each group valuable skills. My daughter came away a better volleyball player and more passionate about the sport. As a parent, I was impressed with how friendly the staff was especially given their elite skill and knowledge level. My daughter loved the food and ate better than usual.  That was great to see!  Thank you for creating such a supportive, team oriented environment.  It really helps spreading love for the sport and help creates a great learning environment.

    Great experience

    My daughter attended and enjoyed all aspects of the camp; the experience of visiting the college, the campers, the staff and the challenge were great. It was well organized. She definitely wants to return next year and wants to stay for the whole week and do the position specific training as well.

    Well organized

    The Advanced Volleyball Camp at Rutgers University provided a great environment to learn and refine volleyball skills, and at the same time have plenty of fun. The camp was well organized and the facilities were great. Coach Werneke and staff were more than willing to teach, support and encourage players.

    Definitely will return

    My daughter enjoyed this camp so much that she begged to stay for an additional two days. She felt completely safe and looked after the entire time (she's 13), and the coaches were a great blend of fun and competitive. It wasn't too crowded, so she got a LOT of playtime (compared to other camps). We'll definitely go back next year! Great experience.

    The Nike Volleyball Camp at Rutgers is an awesome experience. It gives you an intense workout and helps you improve your skills no matter what level you are at when you come to camp. It gives you a chance to see what it takes to move to the next level. You have a change to have excellent instruction from actual college coaches.

    Fun college coaches

    The Rutgers camp is really cool because the coaches are actually college or recent college players. They give everyone a chance to play and the drills are awesome.

    Gives you a glimpse of playing in college

    I think that the camp gives excellent instructions to girls at all levels. It also demonstrates that if you work hard there are levels that you can work up to. It also gives you a glimpse into what it would feel like to play for a college team. The dorms were a lot of fun. It also gives you a chance to meet girls from different areas and make new friends. It was an awesome experience.

    Not Your Average Camp

    "You might be thinking, well this is just another volleyball camp where I just play volleyball all day, repeat, repeat, repeat. Well, think again. Nike Volleyball Camp is a great place, whether you're staying overnight or not, to make friends, express yourself, encourage others, and of course, play volleyball! The coaches in this camp are funny, caring, patient, and talented. They encourage you to play your best and ask questions as you play. Say goodbye to repetitive drills, because Nike Volleyball Camp also provides an ongoing list of different drills that target different areas of play. Whether you're racing up to the net to spike or in the back to dive for the spike, you'll be putting yourself out there with no more boredom in the way. Register for this camp and you'll be wanting to come back for more."

    Hands on Experience

    "If you feel you would enjoy and yearn for a more hands-on-experience, nike camps are the place to go. the instruction is detail oriented and meticulous. Guidance, help, and advice are avaliable at any time. Participants are watched and accounted for frequently, so safety is definitely NOT an issue. Campers (day and overnight)are ALWAYS accompanied by a counselor and/or coach. I've been to the nike volleyball camp for two years now, so take my knowledge and experience. This is an outstanding camp, its  fun, safe, and educational towards athletic means "

    Once in a Lifetime Opportunity

    "Attending a sleep away camp at any age can be scary. However, rutgers nike camp, from the moment i stepped into the gym, welcomed me. For the entire camp i felt safe and at home. Not only did i meet wonderful players, i established a great basis with the coaches. The time i spent at the camp was well worth any amount of money. The exposure into the volleyball world was great! Not only did i get to show my skills in front of the head coach, but i got the once in a lifetime chance to play against the coaches."

    — Camper

    • 5/5.
    Great for all levels

    Nike volleyball camp is a great place to go if you are a beginner or expert. Beginners are taught the basics of volleyball and every position on the court while experts are taught more intense volleyball. This camp is fun and helps you get to know the game.
