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. The camp combines all major positions and provides position specific training. It 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.
 
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 teenagers), 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 2017
 
VPC is not a general volleyball skills camp and athletes attending are expected to be in good physical condition. As well, coaches will assume that athletes have a solid background in the sport of volleyball. Each camp targets specific Volleyball Canada designated age groups. 
 
CAMP #1 is not a general skills camp. VPC is looking for athletes wishing 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 school team.

CAMP #2 and CAMP #3 are for athletes looking to pursue excellence at a higher level, i.e. to play at the post secondary level, and wanting to train with like-minded individuals.  Coaches will assume that each athlete has a solid background in volleyball (i.e. has club volleyball experience).

It is expected that each athlete will be in good physical condition to begin their respective camp.

NOTE: VPC age eligibility pertains to the athlete's date of birth and her current Team in the '16-'17 Indoor Volleyball Season. 
 
i.e. 15U (born in 2002) and currently playing on a 15U Team in the '16/'17 season
 
If an athlete is underage, 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.
