    Great food!

    July 31, 2018: Jadyn went on her own and has attending other camps and thought this was the best one. She was able to build her skills, friendships were made, and most of all she had fun! She had nothing but raves about the food.

    Made a lot of friends

    July 27, 2018: I made loads of new friends! My dorm roommates are going to be some of my friends for a while! Everyone at Platteville was very nice and welcome to new friends which was amazing! All of the practice sessions were very well run and that excited me as a player!

    Her skills increased tremendously.

    July 27, 2018: My child has never enjoyed a camp so much! We will definitely be returning to this one. Camp directors were knowledgeable and fun. She went into camp not even doing her jump serve and came out of camp doing her jump serve. Her skills increased tremendously. She met lots of new people and can't wait for next year. Thanks!

    She always learns a ton

    July 13, 2018: This is my daughter's 3rd year and we are never disappointed. She always learns a ton. After a full week of camp you'd think she would want to go home and rest but she actually couldn't wait to go to volleyball league that same night to practice the skills she learned!! As she enters HS this year these new skills will be very beneficial... thank you for a great camp!!

    Great camp!

    July 13, 2018: This camp helped with improving her skills! She played in a tournament after checking out of camp, and it was so fun to watch how much she had improved in 4 short days. Very organized! My daughter had a blast & walked away with a visible improvement in skills. Great camp!

    lots of opportunity for individual attention

    July 14, 2017: I liked the low number of older girls so there were more opportunities for individualized learning. Lily has been to camps where there are 100+ campers and the smaller size was a plus. Lily LOVED it...already talking about going back next year!

    Staff was motivating!

    July 13, 2017: Her favorite experience about the camp was when they were in their letter groups because this was the time she got to show off her skills as a hitter and passer and here she felt she learned skills- such as overhead passing, proper roll shot techniques and how to roll properly. Food was also excellent and staff was excited and motivated her to do her best so felt great! The amount of walking was tiring for the girls.

    Great value!

    July 13, 2017: Loved the dorms and really liked her coach for the tournament - said she was really personable and a good athlete. 10 years ago, our oldest daughter attended this camp loved it. She learned a lot and had such a great experience, we registered our 14 year old this year. Overall, the camp is a great value offering skill enhancement, technique, team building and 4 fun-filled days of volleyball on the beautiful University of Wisconsin, Platteville campus. We look forward to returning next summer!

    Great for all skill levels

    July 19, 2015: This camp does a good job of testing kids on skills and then has them do drills in peer groups. There are varying degrees of experience and it's important kids are given the opportunity to excel, rather than be slowed down by those with lacking skills.

    — Kathy L. Parent

    Highly Recommended

    I definitely recommend UW Platteville Nike Volleyball camp to others. My daughter went three times and each time came home with a higher skill level and full of volleyball knowledge and confidence to implement what she learned.

    Very organized

    Nike Volleyball Camp at UW-Platteville was very organized. It didn't take long to check-in, meet my roommate, and off to begin a session. I really liked that my coach was a college coach to push me to the next level.

    Superb camp

    This is the first year my daughter attended the Nike Volleyball Camp. It was a great experience and I highly recommend this camp to all players who want to increase their skill set and receive instruction from knowledgeable staff in a safe setting. Thank you Nike and UWP for providing a superb camp. We will be back.

    Challenges players

    This camp challenge my daughter to bring her game to another level and find the strength within herself to rise to it. Exposed to higher skilled instructors that seem to really care to instill a love for their sport and willing spirit to pass it on to the next generation.

    Good experience

    Our daughter had a very good experience. Despite the beastly heat (and no a/c in the rooms), she really enjoyed the instruction and the friendships that she made. She is very proud to wear her U of W "rip it" shirts at school volleyball practices and has kept in touch with a number of the girls that she met at camp. A good experience and the perfect amount of time away from home. P.S. the frozen yogurt every night was amazing for our camper AND the social time was great. They were treated respectfully and given certain freedoms that were appropriate. Very fun!

    Best camp

    Nike Volleyball Camp at UW-Platteville was a terrific camp. I have been to others offered at other colleges and this one is the best by far. I learned so much about the things I need to improve on and how to go about improving them. Definitely will be back!

    This camp means business!

    This camp means business! If you are serious about improving your volleyball game, this is the camp for you. My daughter learned more in that week than she did with her club team last fall. It was excellent!

    Fun, but work hard

    This camp was a lot of fun, mostly hard work, and they deffentaly keep you busy. I learned a lot of new blocks and improved my approach. The coaches were amazing and they really helped me understand what I was doing wrong and definitely told me what I was doing right. I cant wait to come back next year!

    Positive experience

    Nike UWP volleyball camp was a very positive experience for my daughter. It instilled a good work ethic and encouraged team work. The staff at Nike volleyball were very knowledgeable and help my daughter grow into a more confident volleyball player.

    • 5/5.
    Cater to all ability levels

    It's intense and busy, and the instructors pay attention to the girls ability level and needs. The coaches teach to the girls individual level yet still push them to make them better players.

    — Parent

    • 5/5.
    Pushes you to be better

    It teaches players to play as a team but at the same time works on each players ability. And really takes you outside of your comfort zone without anybody making fun of you.

    Perfect your form

    "If you are looking for a volleyball camp that works to improve your daughters volleyball game then this is the camp for you. The camp had two UW head volleyball coaches working the camp. They really worked to perfect my daughters serve and hitting form."

    Good learning environment

    This is the second year my daughter attended the Nike Volleyball Camp. We have been very pleased with our experience at this camp. I would highly recommend Nike Volleyball Camps. Instructors are knowledgeable and the camp setting is conducive to a great learning environment. We will be back!

    Get specific training

    I really liked the specific training we got in our positions. For instance, when we got to choose which group we wanted to practice in, depending on the position we wanted to learn about. I thought that I really improved in the area I wanted to improve in.
