LEAD CAMP ADMINISTRATORS/COACHES (Quality Player to Coach Ratio)
***Intermediate/Advanced Mini-Camps, Clinics & Specialty Training***
Typically for 3rd-9th grades (Co-Ed) and 8th-12th grades (Boys), our mini-camps and clinics focus on all-skills or skill specific sessions. We foster a high level, fast-paced, drill and play environment for experienced players. We will separate and slow it down for the less experienced. Our experienced coaches run through specific skills training and work closely with every participant. This is a perfect opportunity to train at a high level, while getting lots of touches on the ball. Our camps feature experienced coaches, excellent training, quality player to coach ratio, multi-court facility, lots of touches on the ball and fun sessions!
***Co-Ed Youth Academy***
Typically for 1st-6th grades, we invite beginner to lightly experienced players to participate in our Academy. Using the same training philosophy as our intermediate/advanced camps and clinics, the Youth Academy focuses on the six basic fundamentals of volleyball (setting, passing, floor defense, serving, hitting and blocking). Through drills and repetition we provide an environment where technique, feedback and touches on the ball are key to our training. Select sessions may include specific agility training, which may include indoor and outdoor (in the sand) drills. Our Youth Academy is offered several times a year typically for 9-12 hours of training per session.
Open gyms provide an opportunity for players who are interested in learning about our program and getting to know our coaches. The coaches will organize games for the players in a fast paced, non-instructional environment. Players can come get touches on the ball while allowing EVJ coaches to get to know them better in the event they are interested in trying out for our club.
