    Helpful and fun

    This camp is very helpful and fun! I enjoyed it very much, as it was my second year attending it. I think the teachers and helpers are very good at what they do and they should keep up.

    Great for all skill levels

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
