Summer Volleyball Camps 2020
We are in the process of confirming all of our 2020 Volleyball Camp Offerings. Currently announced are the General Skills Camp, College Coach Camp, and the High School Boot Camp. Potentially, we may have an additional camp offering in North Jersey.
A summer-long clinic program will open up in the next few weeks as well.
**Our refund policy has changed to make clear we will offer 100% refunds if any/all camps are canceled due to the ongoing pandemic.
General Skills VB Camp
July 6-9, 2020 (9AM-4PM)
Hosted at Georgian Court University
Open to ages 9-16
The General Skills VB Camp will be run in a typical sports camp fashion. Each day will consist of basic/advanced skill training in the morning, followed by more of a play oriented afternoon to reinforce the skills and techniques. Athletes will be separated and grouped by age/skill levels.
This camp is best for those who have 2 or less years of VB experience, as well as beginners. Those with experience will be train separately from those without experience.
This camp is run by the staff of Georgian Court University Women's Volleyball team.
"College Coach" VB Camp
July 20-23, 2020 (9AM-4PM)
Hosted at Brick Memorial High School
Open to ages 13-18
*Due to the nature of this camp with one master coach, this camp is best for athletes with a basic understanding of the techniques of volleyball. There will not be a separate group for beginners to go at a slower pace.
Each day of camp will be run by a different "College Coach" who is brought in to run both the morning and afternoon session. Each coach will bring their own style, teaching the game in their own unique way. This is a great opportunity to learn from 4 different college coaches, without having to travel to 4 different college campuses. Shore Volleyball Academy will be providing court coaches to assist on all courts.

Tuesday Coach- TBA

"High School Boot Camp" VB Camp
August 3rd-6th, 2020 (9AM-4PM)
Hosted at Georgian Court University
Open to ages 13-18 (any skill level)
For 2020 we are back with our regularly scheduled full-day HS Boot Camp style volleyball camp, run by the staff of Georgian Court University.
The #1 goal of this camp is to prepare female athletes for their upcoming High School volleyball tryouts!
This camp will follow an intense camp schedule; combining skill instruction, rigorous drills, and competitive games to get the most out of our athletes. Our skill sessions are run just like our NCAA Division II college pre-season. Our new/youngest athletes will be placed into a group that will focus on technique development, giving them a true leg up on others at their tryouts. Camp ends with our always competitive, Camp Tournament.

What happens if the COVID 19 pandemic is still ongoing when we get to camps?
If camps were to be canceled, we would give 100% refunds for deposits and all moneys paid towards camps (just as we did in March when the Spring clinic canceled). There may be instances where it is possible to reschedule an early camp for later in the summer. In that case, you would have the option of a 100% refund or still participating in the new camp dates.
It is our intention to follow federal and NJ regulations for all future programs. Besides, most of our programs are at schools/universities that always error on the side of caution.
Which camps are best for my athlete?
Please read the camp descriptions and who they are best suited for. Camps are open to different age ranges. In general though, beginners are accepted to the General Skills and HS Boot Camp, intermediate players could participate in any of the three camps, and advanced players would be best suited for the HS Boot Camp and College Coach Camp. You may select multiple camps on one registration form.
How do I reserve a spot for my child?
All camps require both the registration form and a deposit to reserve your child's spot.
I am on the waiting list, what can I expect next?
Waiting lists are created once camps have reached capacity. As registrants pull out (for any reason) we refer to this list to offer newly opened spots. This could be from weeks before camp to even day 1 of camp. Things do come up, so it is very typical for numerous athletes form the waiting list to make it into camps.
Is there air-conditioning?
The Wellness Center of Georgian Court University and the gym at Brick Memorial High School are both air conditioned. The Casino (possibly used at the General Skills Camp depending on numbers) is not air-conditioned.
Are drinks provided?
All sites have access to water fountains and/or water coolers. It is still heavily recommended to bring a water bottle so your athlete can easily stay hydrated for camps during each water break.
