    Really Great Camp

    Aug 6, 2018: All of the coaches were very encouraging, fun, happy, and took time to help my child with learning proper technique. Sadie had such a great time! She hadn't ever tried volleyball before, and now loves it. Thank you especially to Shea, who made Sadie's camp the best! Honestly, I thought it was a really great camp. My daughter has done many camps over the years. Often I don't feel the value is there based on cost of the camp. Usually due to the fact that the people leading the camp don't really care if the children participate or not, learn, etc. Often the leaders talk among themselves, and let the kids do whatever, with a few instructions in between. Not so here. The coaches were focused on helping the kids learn, and were really great, and positive with the girls.(and one boy) They also played fun warm-up games, and other games that made learning volleyball skills enjoyable.

    Excited to play everyday

    Aug 5, 2018: Sam was enthusiastic after every day with an "I love volleyball". he was thrilled to see the players in action, was excited to get to play and learn a different skill each day. We loved it, would be great to have more boys, but it didn't impact his experience negatively. I think it was good for him, so appreciate everyone's warmth and encouragement!

    Helped fuel her passion

    Serious training!

    July 31, 2017: Of the camps we have been to this summer and in past summers, the SU players did by far the best job coaching the girls that we have seen. Not just being buddies but actually delivering instruction. Serious training and working with the players.

    Extraordinary coaching experience

    August 1, 2016: Seattle University offers some extraordinary coaching exposure, by a proven team of Coach Finlay & Coach Petrovic. They really helped bring out the best in my advanced club player, encouraging new patterns of thinking and analyzing position play. Leadership is key out there, and they pushed everyone to "rise to the occasion". Playing with their existing collegiate team is a thrill for any club player. My daughter definitely had some solid skill "take aways" to integrate into her game. Thanks to the players of the Seattle University Team for taking such good care of the campers...making them feel at home.

    Had a great time at camp

    July 17, 2016: We loved the Nike camp! My 14 yr old daughter was pushed to work hard, do her best and given opportunities to play with players that would challenge her. Nike camp offered her plenty of reps of each skill, she improved in the 4 days while she was there. She had a great time and I would recommend this camp to players who want coaches that really coach your kids with their passion for the game and focus on the players improvement while keeping them excited to play.

    — Lisa S. Parent

    Great intensity level

    Advanced program

    July 26, 2015: The coaches were great. My teen was pleasantly surprised that she would enjoy the camp at age 16. She plans to go back each year Nike volleyball advanced camp is offered. Nike camps gave my teen more volleyball play time, coaching, and skills than many other camps, or club ball. Having college volleyball players at the camp is a mentoring plus. Thank you for the experience.

    Coaches are amazing

    Improve Skills

    This was my first time at volleyball camp. I was really nervous about the coach and college team. I knew my skill level wasn't that great but it improved greatly once the camp was over. I got great feedback from college players and the coach on what I had to do to get better:)
