We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations.

    Phenomenal camp and amazing coaches!

    July 28, 2019: We just moved here from a North Carolina and Kaylee was very nervous about coming because she has always had a group over friends to go with her on overnight camps. Well, I’m pushy and I made her come and I’m so glad she did!! She made a couple of new friends and she said it’s the best camp she has ever been to! She cannot wait until next year! She has already asked a few girls from her school to come! Thanks for everything!

    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.

    — Mia Z. Parent

    • 5/5.
    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!!

    — Alea L. Parent

    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 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.

    Superb camp

    This is the first year my daughter attended the Nike Volleyball Camp.

    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!

    Cannot wait until next year!

    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!

    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.

    — Parent

    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."

    — Parent

    Worth the time

    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!

    — Parent

    • 5/5.
    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.
