We offer specialty skills camps to advance players to the next level by enhancing and refining understanding of the game, technique, and tactics. These camps teach the skills and tactical awareness of reading, reacting, responding, and recovering during game play.

Digging and Defense Camp - This camp focuses on first contact skills of passing, defense, and serving. This is an excellent camp for athletes to develop overall fundamentals for digging and passing. The emphasis is on understanding floor work for digging, platform for passing, and overall reading skills for defensive play. Time will be dedicated to advancing each athlete's serving technique.
