Program:

Session A will focus on 3 main goals:  1) introducing the game of volleyball and how it is played including teaching the rules and basic strategies, 2) introducing the proper mechanics of the skills and movement patterns needed to perform skills correctly, and 3) making camp fun so that the girls will come away with loving the game of volleyball and experiencing success.  This camp is meant for girls just starting volleyball who have not played any club level volleyball or any organized team volleyball.

Sessions B will focus on training volleyball players to elevate their level of play in all areas of the game (serving, receiving, setting, passing, hitting, and blocking).  Focus will be on teaching offensive and defensive systems as well as multi-tempoed offensive plays while training players in agility, flexibility, vertical jumping and transitioning.

Session C & E will focus mainly on specific positions with the addition of spending time on serving and ball control drills as well as leaving some time to play.  Focus will be on footwork, refining techniques, giving repetitions for each skill but also focusing on learning the strategies of each position. A written evaluation will also be given to each player.

Session D (ID Elite Camp) is meant to be a high level teaching and training camp for female high schoolers planning to play volleyball at the collegiate level. The camp looks to introduce players to the technical and tactical training used by the Calvin College women’s volleyball program.  With sessions run by the Calvin College coaching staff, campers will get the truest taste of what it is like to play for the Knights and learn more about the goals and philosophy of Calvin College Volleyball.  

Includes staying in the dorms Thursday & Friday night and meals all day Friday and breakfast Saturday. Please contact Coach Warners directly if you need transportation to and from the airport. There is an option of having a tour and meeting with the admission department on Thursday afternoon before camp starts. 

Sessions B, C, & E will need each participant to bring their own lunch and drink.

Lodging is available for Session D only

**If you have a daughter who is more advanced for her grade level or has been playing on a team with girls from a higher grade, contact Coach Warners at 616-526-6223 or awarners@calvin.edu for advice on camp placement.
