Sessions are designed for the varsity level player that is interested in learning in a competitive atmosphere. Coaches will stress the importance of refined fundamental skills, train position specific techniques, and challenge campers with demanding drills and games. Players will spend a portion of camp working with a position coach and will train the remaining time on a court with like-skilled teammates. New: One session will include an outdoor sand/grass volleyball tournament!
