High Expectations Volleyball Camp

June 24-26, 2019

This high-level camp is not for everyone. Players must have an extensive volleyball background, as they will be asked to jump-set, jump-serve, roll/sprawl and run a quick offense. If our coaches think players have the potential to try something, it will be tried!

Applicants need to be at least rising 8th graders with at least three seasons (school or club teams only) of competitive playing experience on volleyball teams. If your daughter doesn’t have the required experience but believes that she should be considered anyway, please contact us!


College Expectations Volleyball Camp

June 28-30, 2019

Our College Expectations Camp is only for advanced, varsity-level players. Players attending this camp should have enough athleticism, skill and motivation to play at the college level. Players will be asked to execute complex offenses and do whatever it takes to win rallies.

Applicants need to be at least rising 9th graders and have at least five seasons (school or club teams only) of competitive playing experience. If your daughter doesn’t have the required experience but believes that she should be considered anyway, please contact us!
