Volleyball Position Camp (VPC) Description

Here are some of the highlights that set Volleyball Position Camp apart from other volleyball camps:
  
Position Specific Training 
 
The general concept of Volleyball Position Camp is to train in your chosen position (outside hitter, middle blocker, setter, and libero) with athletes of similar age and ability. Each day there will be opportunities to transfer position specific knowledge and to continue to learn from an outstanding group of VPC coaches. VPC provides the athlete with learning opportunities far beyond what any other regular skills camp can offer. (Click on each Position Name below for detailed information about that position specific camp experience - Opens in a new window)

Specialty Training 
 
Each week VPC designates one day for specialty training sessions. This day is designed for the athlete to gain new or additional experiences in areas including:
  • jump serving
  • standing float serving
  • individual defence
  • advanced defensive techniques
  • individual serve receive
  • advanced serve receive techniques
  • arm action correction
  • wipe-off techniques
  • ball recovery skills
  • second ball attack for setters and others
    and more!
Athletes will be able to choose the coach and the activities they wish to take part in via a sign up for that particular day.





Beyond the Court 
 
There are many external factors that influence an athlete's performance on the court. At Volleyball Position Camp, we will provide Sport Science training sessions addressing areas such as:
  • proper nutrition
  • mental skills training
  • how-to physical training session
All areas are specifically geared towards the female volleyball player. 

As well, video analysis will be a part of the curriculum at VPC. (The exception will be a 4 day camp, as there will not be enough time to provide this feature.)

Educating athletes in these areas will only help to strengthen their game.
 
Daily Schedule
 
Camps run from Monday through Friday, unless otherwise specified. Throughout the camp, position specific work along with various forms of team play will take place. This will maximize learning opportunities and allow the athletes the chance to apply what they have just learned in their respective positions.
 
Breaks will be given in the morning and afternoon sessions. Athletes are encouraged to bring a water bottle, healthy snacks and lunch each day. Due to possible nut allergies, please refrain from bringing any nut based items for snacks/lunch.
 
Prior to the start of each camp (7-10 days), participants will receive an email with last minute updates and confirmation of camp details.
 
Please visit Camp Schedules for full details.
 

Coaching Staff 
 
Volleyball Position Camp coaches are experienced athletes and coaches chosen for their ability to teach skills and provide feedback to the athlete. Over the years, VPC has had current and former National, Professional, University, and College Team players, in addition to current University and College coaches. You will not find a more qualified coaching staff throughout the country. 
 
All of the coaches are educators/teachers (with an innate ability to connect with age class athletes), self-motivated, driven, have a love of volleyball, and are themselves life-long learners in the sport of volleyball.
 
Please visit Camp Coaches for full details.
 

Athlete Accommodations
 
For out of town athletes needing a place to stay for our camps, accommodation options have been arranged.
 
It should be noted, payment and supervision are not the responsibility of VPC. To stay in a college residence without parental supervision, an athlete must be 18 years of age or older

Please visit Camp Accommodations for full details. 
 
Athlete Eligibility for 2018
 
First and foremost, VPC is looking for participants who possess the right attitude (great work ethic and willingness to apply what is being coached) along with the relative skill-set and/or physical potential according to the respective camp.
 
ADVANCED CAMPS (CAMP #1 and CAMP #3) have specific eligibility requirements. Being age-appropriate is required unless having received permission from VPC’s Director. Skill-wise, the respective camps are appropriate for athletes who wish to pursue excellence at a higher level (i.e. play post secondary) and want to train with like-minded athletes. Coaches will assume that each athlete has a solid volleyball background (i.e. club volleyball experience). It is expected that athletes will be in good physical condition at the start of their respective camp and that any pre-existing injuries be identified during on-line registration and at camp check-in.

CAMP #2 is not a general skills camp. Being age-appropriate is required unless having received permission from VPC’s Director. VPC wishes to work with athletes that want to take their game to the next level. It is recommended that athletes have played on a club volleyball team, or at least, on a competitive school team. It is expected that athletes will be in good physical condition at the start of this camp and that any pre-existing injuries be identified during on-line registration and at camp check-in.

NOTE: VPC age eligibility pertains to the athlete's date of birth and her current Team in the 2017–2018 Indoor Volleyball Season versus "playing up" a division in preparation for the next season.
 
i.e. 15U is considered by VPC as an athlete born in 2003 and currently playing on a 15U Team in the 2017–2018 Indoor Volleyball Season
 
If an athlete is underage or there is a question regarding skill level, please contact VPC's Camp Director to email your request for verification of camp eligibility (check if athlete is age or skill appropriate for a specific camp prior to registering).
 
Camp Cost 

Due to our exceptional quality of coaches, innovative concepts, safe and excellent facilities and to support our coach to player ratio (1:10), this camp can not be in the same cost category as a traditional skills camp.
