We are looking forward to returning to the courts with VPC 2022, albeit cautiously and in accordance with our host facilities' regulations. This summer, we are hosting 4 camp events: two in Toronto, one in our newest host city, London, ON, and one in Ottawa.

We are thrilled to be able to bring VPC to London, ON. Over the years, we have had incredible support from the volleyball community in southwestern Ontario. An Advanced Camp for 15UG/16UG age class athletes (in the 2021-2022 season) will take place at Fanshawe College.

For more details regarding VPC and our SUMMER 2022 offerings, please explore our website and/or visit our Camp Registration webpage.

Volleyball Position Camp (VPC) provides a unique and valuable learning experience designed to teach and train you, the athlete, to reach the next level of your volleyball game. We offer volleyball position specific training on a daily basis. Throughout the week, this is incorporated into all aspects of team play. Sport Science areas such as the role and importance of physical training, mental preparation and proper nutrition are introduced. Our coaches' knowledge base draws upon their coaching and/or playing experience, so they can provide the best possible learning environment that leads to success. Our camp experience is second to none and our coaches look forward to working with dedicated athletes like you.

Friendly Reminder: Prior to registering for Setter or Libero positions, please ensure that the athlete meets our Setter/Libero Eligibility requirements, as described below.

Position Specific Training

The general concept of Volleyball Position Camp is to train in your chosen position 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.

Specialty Training

Each week VPC designates one day for specialty training sessions. Athletes will be able to choose the activities they wish to take part in, as time will be dedicated to "athlete's choice". VPC's Specialty Training day is designed for the athlete to gain new or additional experiences in areas, including:

Serving (Jump Float & Spin) | Recovery Skills | Setting for non-setters | Libero Skills for non-liberos ... and more!

Beyond the Court

There are many external factors that influence an athlete's performance on the court. At VPC, we provide Sport Science training sessions addressing areas such as:

Sport Performance Psychology | Strength and Conditioning | Nutrition | Video Analysis*

Providing life-long skills that will strengthen their on-court game


* Video analysis is offered in full week camps and at coaches' discretion in shorter camps

Athlete Eligibility

Volleyball Position Camp is not a general volleyball skills, summer camp. Coaches will assume that registered athletes already have a solid background in the sport of volleyball and anticipate that athletes will exhibit the following:

  • Coachability >> Athletes will do their best to apply coaching feedback, even if it means making a mistake

  • Being A Good Teammate >> Athletes will be respectful and supportive of others

  • Physical Readiness >> It will be assumed that athletes will be in good physical shape and all training will reflect this

  • Healthy Work Ethic >> To get the most of their camp experience, athletes must be willing to work for what they want and will do so in a positive and healthy manner

  • Age Appropriateness (unless receiving permission from VPC’s Director)

PLEASE NOTE: VPC age eligibility pertains to the athlete's date of birth and current Team in the 2021-2022 Indoor Volleyball Season versus "playing up" a division in preparation for the next season. For example, 15Ux is considered by VPC as an athlete currently playing on a 15Ux team in the 2021–2022 Indoor Volleyball Season. If there is a question regarding skill level, please email the VPC Director to request verification of camp eligibility (if in doubt, please check if an athlete is age or skill appropriate for a specific camp prior to registering).

Advanced Camp and Setter/Libero Eligibility

Advanced Camp athletes are those who are at a higher skill level and/or may possess physical abilities/potential.

Setter and Libero Eligibility >> Due to the very limited spots available per position, each setter/libero must have: (1) competed in their respective position during the 2021/2022 season, and (2) competed in Premier/Select at least once during this season with their team. If an athlete does not meet these conditions, please email the VPC Director for permission to register.

Why Consider a 14UG/15UG Camp? (non-Advanced)

VPC's 14UG/15UG Camp offers a fantastic opportunity for those athletes who are moving from Traditional Volleyball Non-Specialized (TNS), and want to gain position specific on-court experience and knowlege in a supportive environment.

Camp Schedules

Throughout each offering, position specific work along with various forms of team play will take place. Each camp's daytime sessions will run from approximately 9:00—4:00 pm (or until 1:00 pm on the last day for some camps). We have expanded to offer night time sessions in 2022 as well, running from 6:00—10:00 pm. Final schedules will be sent to all registrant contacts by email, prior to the camp start date*. Each daytime session will include a lunch break as well as 2 smaller rest periods, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Similarly, rest periods will be offered to night time session attendees. Athletes are encouraged to bring a water bottle, healthy snacks and lunch (for day time camps) each day. Due to possible nut allergies, please refrain from bringing any nut based items for snacks/lunch.

2022 Camp Duration: Due to the overall, but non-standardized increase in gym rental fees and availability times, our 2022 VPC offerings are of various durations. As such, we remind you to please consider the specific days/times offered by the camp you plan to attend.

*REMINDER: Prior to the start of each camp (7-10 days), participants will receive an email with any last minute updates and confirmation of camp details.

Camp Accommodations

VPC is a typically a day camp, running from 9:00 am—4:00 pm daily (or until 1:00 pm on the last day for some camps). For out of town athletes needing a place to stay for our daytime camps, accommodation options are available to the public at campus residences. PLEASE NOTE: Payment and supervision are not the responsibility of VPC. To stay in a residence without parental supervision, an athlete must be 18 years of age or older.
