Elite Camp is designed specifically to train the skills of hitting, setting and back court play. Hitters, setters and defensive specialists will be separated and grouped during the first segment of the camp according to position and skill level. During the final segment of the camp, the group of positions will come together for a team play portion. The camp will conclude with a tournament during the final afternoon session. Campers must register by position. If a camper wants to change their position (and there are spots available) then they must contact us by July 5. No changes will be made after this date.
