The VPC Experience

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. Position specific training takes place on a daily basis, and it is incorporated into all aspects of team play. VPC’s holistic approach values Sport Science: Sports Performance Psychology, Strength + Conditioning and Proper Nutrition will be a part of your training experience. Our coaches knowledge base draws upon their coaching and/or playing experience where they can provide the best possible learning environment that leads to success. We look forward to working with dedicated athletes like you!

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.

Beyond the Court

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

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

 ~~ providing life-long skills to strengthen athletes' on-court game ~~


* Video analysis is offered during a 5 day event and at coaches' discretion in shorter events

Athlete Eligibility Requirements

To help make it easier to determine which VPC event is best suited for you, the athlete, VPC strongly encourages the following:

Athletes' Key to Success:

Each year, VPC strives to provide the highest level of coaching. Regardless of the VPC event, the most successful athletes are those who exhibit the following (non-skill) qualities:

Age Eligibity pertains to 2023-2024 Indoor Season:

VPC age eligibility pertains to the athlete's date of birth and current Team in the 2023-2024 Indoor Volleyball Season versus "playing up" a division in preparation for the next season. For example, 15U is considered by VPC as an athlete currently playing on a 15U team in the 2023–2024 Indoor Volleyball Season. If there is a question regarding athlete eligibility, please email the VPC Director (if in doubt, please check if an athlete is age appropriate for a specific event prior to registering).

Why Consider the TLS (14U)/15U ADVANCED Camp?

For eligible 15U athletes, this is an opportunity to prepare for your 16U season. VPC will provide you with the knowledge and skill set that will set you up to be  successful at the next level and beyond. 

For eligible TLS athletes, many of you have been competing in 15U events during the season where you have had a chance to specialize. Your training opportunities at VPC will allow you to work and improve on the skill set and knowledge that will be required at the next level and beyond.

* 5/8 setter spots will be reserved for 15U athletes 

* 5/8 libero spots will be reserved for 15U athletes 

15U Setters + Liberos: you have until June 17th to register for either of these positions. If there is still availability, the spots will be released for all eligible TLS athletes.

Success at 15U and/or TLS (14U) does not guarantee you will be successful at the next age class. VPC is here to help prepare you to better face those challenges that will be coming your way next season!

* TLS = Traditional Limited-Specialized, as defined by Ontario Volleyball

Camp Schedules

Each event day will run from approximately 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Final schedules will be sent to all registrant contacts by email, prior to the event start date. Each day will include a lunch break as well as 2 smaller rest periods, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. 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. 

*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.
