About Shore Volleyball Academy. 

Shore Volleyball was started with two goals in mind:
1.  Teach the sport of volleyball the right way (using only qualified and experienced coaches)

2.  Share our passion/love for the sport with the next generation of athletes

Without a doubt, we are accomplishing these goals.  Our program offerings start as young as 8 years old, to our highest level programs where our most experienced athletes have gone on to play college volleyball at the NCAA DI/DII/DIII and Junior College levels.

Our staff is the best in the area.  Our Director/Head Coach is a NCAA DII full-time volleyball coach, spending 40+ hours a week on the sport.  Our Assistant Directors/Head Coaches are college coaches, who have also spent time as high school and travel club coaches.  Every night of every session is programed by one of our Directors.  All of our court coaches have experience coaching/playing at the high school level, with the vast majority also playing college volleyball.

Due to the popularity of our programs, and the space/time limitations to ensure we can provide an excellent experience, most of our programs do fill up and end up with a waiting list.  Some of our most popular summer camps fill several months in advance.

Our History

Shore Volleyball Academy was founded in 2015 as Sempkowski Volleyball LLC by the the volleyball Coaches at Georgian Court University(Coach Dan Sempkowski and Coach Jason Ulrich).  It all started with the sole purpose of offering a four day long summer volleyball camp to prepare campers for their upcoming High School volleyball tryouts (the "HS Boot Camp" VB Camp).  Since then, we've changed names (now Shore Volleyball Academy) and added significantly to the programming.   We have grown to 7+ unique summer camps , a winter Club Alternative all-inclusive program, several general skills clinics, and even a beach volleyball program that has grown to well over 100+ athletes going into year 3.  In 2020, we even started some offerings for boy's.  We now work with over 30 coaches over the course of a year, some of which were even athletes in our 1st HS Boot Camp years ago.  Well over 1500 student-athletes have participated in Shore Volleyball Academy programming, with over 400 just from Summer 2021 Camps and our 2021 Winter Club Alternative Program combined.

We regularly serve athletes from Ocean County, Monmouth County, and Middlesex County, but do have athletes traveling from North/West/South Jersey, NYC, Staten Island and Pennsylvania that travel for some of our summer camp or specific program offerings.
