NIKE VOLLEYBALL CAMP FAQ
For general questions about our volleyball camps please see our FAQ page.
If you have a group of eight or more campers registering for the same camp, each camper is eligible for a discount. Please have someone contact the US Sports Camps office at 1-800-645-3226 with the names of each camper in the group and we will create a unique discount code for your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the offer code during check out. *Discount amount varies by program. Please call for details.
We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.Show Less See More Camp Details

A fun environment!
This camp will come highly recommended from all of us!!
June 17, 2018: I could tell Kendall was going to have a blast at Nike Camp at Warner University, from the moment we walked in to the gym , we felt so welcomed. Every time I spoke with Kendall she had all positive things to say about the entire experience. When seeing Kendall play ball on that last day of camp, I knew that the week spent here was the best decision we made. She improved on every level of the game and I couldn't be more proud of her and so we are so grateful for the entire staff and coaches. Thank you so much !! See you next year...
— Shaina H. Parent
Above and beyond!
A safe, friendly and wonderful experience. My daughter took so much from this camp, not least her improved skills. I would recommend this camp to any parents. The staff at Warner went above and beyond.
— Parent '13
Coaches were encouraging
I would recommend this camp to other players. All of the coaches were encouraging. They were willing to pull you aside and show you ways to improve your skills.
— Camper '13
It is a great camp for any player that would like to build their skills. It is a good camp, very safe and my daughter loved it.
— Camper '14
Improve your skills
This is my 3rd year attending Nike Volleyball Camps. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone looking to improve their volleyball skills as well as the friendships that are formed with the other players.
— Camper '14
Nike Volleyball Camp does an excellent job at improving skills and keeping it fun at the same time. I definitely felt myself improve and l learned many new things.
— Camper '15
July 15, 2015: This is my daughters second year in a row and my daughter enjoyed learning and the coaches were receptive on working on improving her game.
— Anna W. Parent
July 25, 2015: The coaching was outstanding! I definitely recommend going there if you want to increase your skill level! I had such a great time and can't wait to go again next year.
— Katie G. Camper
One of the best camps I've attended
August 5, 2016: This camp is one of the best I attended. I went to 4 separate camps last year and I learned the most at the Nike camp. My high school noted that I had a great summer and that I improved.
— Rachel M. Camper
Enjoyed camp very much!
June 19, 2017: My 12 year old daughter enjoyed this camp very much. A lot of skills were reinforced, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly, the food was great and the rooms comfortable. The buildings are very plain and the university doesn't have any gardens to look at or enjoy, but they will not have any time for it anyway. It is all about volleyball, which for my daughter was great. The schedule is very long, so prepare your girl to get exhausted daily and especially after these intense 4 days.
— Ana H. Parent
July 17, 2017: This camp was a great experience. I likes how I was not treated as a little kid!
— Logan H. Parent
July 17, 2017: Awesome time. Great staff. The food was extremely good. The camp had a great atmosphere. Exceeded our expectation!
— Robert B. Parent
Helped improve my skills!
July 17, 2017: This camp helped me by giving specific instructions and giving me new advice that I had not heard before, that helped me improve my skills.
— Denise S. Camper
June 17, 2018: Hannah loved going to camp overnight. She said she felt like she was at college. It gave her independence, responsibility, and her game improved tremendously. I felt like everything was very organized and on time. Very happy with the camp. I’m so happy I sent her and I will send her again next year.
— Heather L. Parent
All around great camp!
July 13, 2019: Small size groups enabled Cali to get lots of touches therefore improving her skills. It was good that Cali got to work on all aspects of the game not just those typical of the position she plays on her school and club teams. The more versatile and well rounded the better. I also liked how her Coach on tournament day was really coaching and giving the girls feedback throughout the tournament.
— Karen R. Parent
June 17, 2018: She loved doing drills, and since there was so much time per drill and so many repetitions, she was able to apply corrections effectively and experiment with new improvements to each skill. She made so many friends and loved all the girls that went and was happy she got to know so many people while doing activities together, eating meals together, and living in the same dorms. The drills were extremely helpful, and the mini-games would've been more helpful if organized better (not too much time waiting/off court and more skills incorporated into them).
— Jana E. Parent
We will be back!
June 18, 2018: 2nd year in a row! Helena had a lot of fun. She was able to combine learning and fun while playing her favorite sport. She can't stop talking about how much she loved to be part of the camp. She made new friends plus she was able to be reunited with friends from last year.
— German P. Parent
Made New Friends!
July 16, 2018: My daughter’s skill increased, she learned new techniques to improve her game and made new friends.
— Alicia B. Parent
Learned a lot
June 15, 2019: She loved that she got so much court time, and was challenged once we had her moved up to the older group. She really enjoyed her time with her coaches and on the court playing.
— Jaimi H. Parent
Our girls loved it!
June 15, 2019: This was Jade and Lyla's first away camp experience and it was great. Although we didn't stay overnight on campus this first year we stayed close by to get the same experience for them. They will for sure stay overnight next year. Everyone on the staff was extremely professional and organized. The environment was safe and very encouraging to the campers. They will definitely be back. Thank you for the great experience!
— Morgan L. Parent
A very positive experience!
June 15, 2019: Our first 2 questions to her each night were: did you have fun? And did you do as good as you could do? She always answered yes. Then we got into particulars. Not always a big talker, she wold go on and on about what she had worked on, how she did, the other kids and the coaches, all very positive. This was her first camp experience. She is already talking about next year!
— Ron H. Grandparent
She wants to come back!
June 15, 2019: She loved learning more about the game and she particularly commented that she loved the free time because she got to bump around with the high school girls. She loved performing the hitting drills and mentioned that she wanted to come back next year as an overnight camper.
— Stacy C. Parent
June 15, 2019: My daughter had a wonderful time at her first Nike Camp. The staff and coaches were all amazing and she made great friends. They all encouraged each other and she was able to become an overall better player.
— Lana C. Parent
Coaching staff really works with your child
June 17, 2019: Gabby was brand new to volleyball which presented a little bit of a challenge because most of the girls were experienced and things got competitive at times. There is nothing wrong with that except my daughter didn't handle it well and it kept her from wanting to participate at times. We let the staff know this and they were very understanding. They made some changes and tried very hard to give my daughter a great experience. I appreciate their efforts.
— Greg I. Parent
Phenomenal camp and amazing coaches!
June 17, 2019: Kendrick loves volleyball. She has been playing for a few years and has attended many different types of summer camps. By far, she came back this time with excitement and feeling more confident. She is an excellent server and has tried and tried to jump serve, but never quite felt comfortable or was able to do it. She called me the 2nd day of camp saying she learned how to do it. She also improved alot on blocking. I can't say Thank You enough for the amazing job your staff did last week. She just made the high school volleyball team and theyve already started practicing. She took the week off to attend your camp. She goes back to practice tomorrow and is pumped to show her coach how much she improved. There were 3 other girls from Savannah, GA that she plays club ball with that attended your camp as well. They all loved it. Please keep me informed of any other camp opportunities available in the near future. Again, GREAT JOB!!!
— Jereese R. Parents
June 18, 2019: From the moment she got there, she was ready to work. And when she did work she had fun, although she may have seemed very serious at her sessions. Her favorite part of camp was the session when the girls played games. Genevieve is competitive and loves to win.
— Seale N. Parents
July 13, 2019: She enjoyed playing with older girls and girls at higher levels than her own! She also enjoyed the food (which is amazing for such a picky eater!!)!Coaches,leaders, & student coaches were all friendly, respectful, helpful, and well-prepared! Thanks to the folks at Warner!!
— Angela B. Parent
Worked hard on her skills
July 13, 2019: She said she really liked the encouragement by the coaches and the way they were able to explain/breakdown how to properly do things. She enjoyed the wins and she met great friends. She’s already said she wants to go back next year.
— Rebecca P. Parent
We come back every year!
July 13, 2019: Samantha has been attending for a few years now, she travels from Richmond VA just to attend. She always comes back with amazing stories of her experience. She truly enjoys the sport, guidance, motivating others as well as how sore she is upon returning:). Samantha’s skills have improved over the years and is thankful to the coaches, as well as ALL those who help put on such an amazing camp experience. Her and I both thank you. She is grateful for each year and looks forward to 2020.
