If you are interested in becoming a knowledgeable and skilled volleyball player, it is vital to attend volleyball camps. Not only do volleyball camps offer a player a look at the fundamentals of volleyball, but they are almost always instructed by former players. The majority of the camps that I have worked were run by people who played the sport in college.
As opposed to going to practice and running around, a camp will slow the method down and give players a solid base to work from. The participants will learn the exact methods and skills such as setting a volleyball and passing a volleyball.
So What Should You Look for When Deciding on a Camp?
If you want to get the most out of a volleyball camp, then you must choose wisely. You have to be sure that the proper amount of technique, skill, and method are being taught at the camp. You absolutely do not want to hear from people attending the camp that all they are doing is scrimmaging.
Finding volleyball camps in your area is much easier now that most camps advertise on the internet. My advice would be to go to Google and search volleyball camps in your area. When making a decision, here are the things that you should look at.
1. What organization is running the camp? Likely the best volleyball camps in your areas will be offered by volleyball clubs. Visit their websites and get the low down on each one. Are they a good club? Do they win a lot? How long have they been around? The longer they have been around I would bet the better that their organization is. Besides clubs, you will find random individuals or park districts that run camps. Again, do your homework.
2. Who is running the camp? Is the person a charge an All-American or a camp counselor? You will definitely find these types running camps and everything in between. Speak with the leader and determine if the knowledge is there.
3. Where is the camp located? Do not feel like you have to drive 4 hours to a good camp. That should not be necessary. There are so many camps to choose from that you really should not have a problem finding one in your area.
Be sure, that when choosing a volleyball camp, you follow the suggestions above. Believe it or not, there are really good volleyball camps out there, but there are also terrible ones. Take action and call, ask questions, or even visit the camp before committing. You will be happy that you did.
