Camp Schedule 2021

Scroll down for camp descriptions & "What to Bring" to camp.

Dates and locations will be added if we are able to secure them. Northend August camps are TBA and will also be added at a later date depending in demand.

**Please note: Our “All Skills” camps are for players of all skill levels. The main difference is the age range at the camp so that we can try to keep players of similar age on the court together. One exception is our June 28-29 “Little Spikers”, where we have set aside two courts specifically for 2-4th graders in our Little Spikers category. Aside from that, all of our "All Skills" camps, we separate campers by age and skill during our first session on the first day of camp to ensure that they are with similarly aged or skilled athletes.

**Registrations are accepted on a first come basis.

Beach Camps Schedule and Covid19 Protocals

Here are a few additional notes for you to be aware of. These are the protocols that were established during the summer of 2020. Until further notice, we will follow similar protocols in 2021:

  • Camp starts at 10:00 AM, and we will begin check in at 9:30 AM.
  • When campers arrive, the can put their belonging in one of the boxed areas under our outdoor pavilion (it will make sense when they arrive)
  • Our check-in each morning includes a temperature check, please arrive early enough for us to do this and start on time. We have a dedicated link for Covid-19 related information: https://www.nwvolleyball.com/covid19-relatedPDF of our Covid19 Protocols
  • Because it is an outdoor camp and can be taxing, we have shorter sessions and take frequent water breaks. We also take a snack break.
  • Please be on time for pick-up. Our camps are typically followed by our beach club practices and we need to get campers out and do our cleaning before our beach club members arrive.
  • Please be sure and send extra water. Sports drinks like Gatorade would also be a good electrolyte replacement if it is unusually hot.
  • Unfortunately, spectators are not permitted until further notice.

 

Camp Overview....

Please note, all of our camps are designed as 3-4-day camps. Most of our beach camps are shorter (hours and days) because the elements (heat and sun) and the sand tend wear out campers faster than the climate controlled confines of the gym. There are usually less campers per court in sand camps, which also means more touches and faster improvement.

We introduce (beginning courts) or enhance (intermediate-advanced courts) all the individual skills on the first two days of camp. Indoors, we also introduce skill appropriate concepts of team offense and team defense. On the beach we introduce offensive and defensive doubles strategies. Day 3 is usually built towards improving the individual skills within a team or game setting, and Day 4 is usually game our tournament play. In our sand camps, we tend to integrate doubles into game play throughout the camp. 

**For the 3 day Advanced Skills indoor camp we spend less time on individual skill drills and more time on game play. When we work individual skills, we do so primarily within the team framework.

CAMP DESCRIPTIONS

ALL SKILLS CAMPS:

These camps are for players of any skill level. Each camp has a different age range depending on available courts and we gear the content to the age range of the camp. In the all skills camps we do as described - we introduce and improve all of the skills in volleyball. During the first session we assess players and group players by age and skill.  It is most important to have players of similar skill on the same court in order to keep each court moving at the proper pace.

These full-day camps spend a great deal of time on individual skill development. We will take each of the skills in volleyball (pass, serve, hit, set, defend, block) and teach the athletes the skills using simple key words and demonstrations. For those that already have experience, we aim the drills and feedback towards improvement and mastery. The ultimate goal is for each athlete to dramatically improve their level of play and their appreciation for the sport of volleyball. That requires a lot of contacts, so regardless of the skill level of the player, they can benefit from the camp.

Areas that are heavily emphasized are ball control, movement, attack footwork, and some blocking footwork. depending on their skill level, there will also be time spent on basic concepts of team defense, serve-receive offense, and transition defense/offense. Included also are brief forums on various subjects including club volleyball, goal-setting, and when applicable college playing opportunities.  All campers are given a camp notebook with skill information and resources for future benefit. This is a great camp for those new to volleyball AND those looking to improve in their skills. By grouping campers by their skill level and running skill-appropriate drills, even the advanced players can reap the benefits of our All Skill Camps.

ADVANCED CAMPS:

Our advanced camps are reserved for experienced High School athletes who will be in the 9th through 12th grades in the Fall. If you are a first time volleyball player in the 9-12th grade, please register for an all-skills camp.

Advanced Camps are our most popular camps for High School-aged Athletes. This camp is designed to give varsity and JV-level athletes some advanced training they can't get at an all-skills camp. Also, the overall level of play should be greatly increased because it is a high school only camp. The camp will concentrate on individual skill-building through advanced skill drills and position tutoring. The afternoons feature a lot of scrimmage-style drills, so experience is a must for success in this camp.  This camp spends about 50% of the time on team-related skill improvement — exactly what high school athletes need to stay sharp over the summer. Campers will spend morning sessions on individual skill development and afternoon sessions will emphasize game-play and team strategies. An additional feature of this camp will be discussions on college recruiting.

SELECT CAMPS:

Our end of Summer High School Select camp is for exceptional JV & Varsity level High School athletes who will be in the 10th through 12th grade in the Fall. There is limited space in the camp as it is held at the NW Juniors 2-court practice facility. All elite athletes with club experience are encouraged to register. Tenth graders looking for that extra edge before HS tryouts begin are encouraged to enroll. We can only accept 28 athletes in this camp and we reserve the right to limit enrollment by position. This Camp runs 3 days.

This camp is designed to give serious athletes some advanced training before the start of their high school seasons. Also, the overall level of play should be greatly increased because it is a high school/JV-Varsity only camp. This camp is similar to the individual skill camps, only it is designed for the advanced volleyball player. The camp will concentrate on individual skill-building through tutoring, leadership skills, and give campers an opportunity to work with the NW Juniors Elite VBC coaching staff and the Edmonds College staff and players. There will be a lot of scrimmage-style drills to get the athletes sharp before the start of the season. Athletes will spend morning sessions on individual skill development and afternoon sessions on game-play and team strategies. An additional feature of this camp will be discussions on college recruiting and off-season training.



CAMP DETAILS and WHAT TO BRING

How is it Organized? 

On the first session of camp all players will participate in brief testing and skill-work. Using the results, campers will be placed in an appropriate skill group. This skill group will progress through all volleyball skills and team skills together.  We strive to keep a 8-10 to 1 player to coach ratio for all of our camps.  Please note that these are not OVERNIGHT CAMPS. 

What’s the Difference?  The best way we can describe the difference between the three camp formats is this way:

  • Our Basic All Skills Camps: They are about 65% individual skill instruction and drills; 35% team game-like instruction and drills.  They are good for players of all skill levels and our most popular camps.

  • Our Advance Skills Camps: They are about 50% basic skills instruction and drills; 50% game-like and are good for high school players that have a mastery of skills and a good understanding of team concepts.

  • Our Select Camps, are Advanced/Elite Camps. Primarily for club players and candidates for our National Teams.  They are about 40% skill development and 60% live-game play.

All camps offer a great curriculum, but differ in the amount of time spent on individual skill instruction versus game instruction and game play.  Please be realistic in the assessment of your athlete’s skill level so that they can benefit the most from whichever camp you enroll them in. In all cases, our camp directors reserve the right to reclassify athletes if they are enrolled in the incorrect camp.
