to increase hand position awareness, footwork pattern efficiency, and overall

ATTACKING & BLOCKING
Campers will receive
swing training and detailed footwork instruction using a variety of offensive
tempos. The athletes will learn effective blocking techniques to better prepare
them for high level attacking.
SERVING & PASSING
This camp is designed to
improve on the fundamental and intermediate styles of passing and serving. We
focus on the foundation of platform and awareness to move to the ball as well as
teach a basic understanding to float and jump serving.

Along with repetition drills and contests we strive to create a team
atmosphere for the campers. We do this by forming competitive team games to give

final day, our campers should have built a solid foundation and mindset towards
multiple offensive and defensive schemes.
TRAIN THE BRAIN

athletes can use in the competitive situation to maintain control and optimize
their performance. These techniques allow the athlete to relax and to focus
attention in a positive manner on the task of preparing for and participating in
competition. Mental preparation is key to the athlete gaining the winning
MISSION FOR NUTRITION
We will show a variety of
fitness, sports nutrition topics and resources from organizations and institutes
that specialize in the sports medicine and exercise science research. We will
also explain how a balanced diet, energy levels, fluid levels and a pregame meal
planner contribute to peak sports performance.
We will provide athletes the understanding
of commitment to conditioning, strength training and being “physically fit” to
compete as their highest level.
Imperative information will be
presented to help student athletes & their parents prepare themselves for
the college recruitment process.
