Senior High Volleyball Camp

Grades 9, 10, 11 and 12 in 2019-20

This program is designed for high school volleyball players looking to prepare for the season ahead.

Players have two options: attend our full four days of programming (Mon-Thu) or pick one or two of our one-day camps to really focus on the skills you want to work on.

Each day, the focus will be on one or two specific skills, starting with fun and dynamic warm-up activities, followed by excellent technical instruction and well-planned drills, including game play. 

Led by Dalhousie head coaches Rick Scott and Dan Ota, sessions are instructed by current and former members of the men’s and women’s volleyball teams.
