Springfield Elite Camp featuring Co-Director, Moira Long

Both Overnight & Commuter options for Girls who have completed Grades 8 – 12 (including graduated high school seniors).

The camp features the  “specialty format” – You will train in your specialized court position:  Setter, Middle Blocker, Libero / Defensive Specialist, Outside Hitter, Opposite    

The first half of camp – the focus is on technical training in your specialized position – much like the training that occurs in college / university settings.

“Elite” – expect to be challenged, expect a high level of competition, expect us to help you take your game to the next level !
