The Springfield Elite Camp

Co-Director, Moira Long (Springfield College Head Women’s Volleyball Coach)
Prerequisite for attendance – highly recommended that you have completed two competitive seasons (high school or club level). 

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.
The second half of camp – the focus is on tactical training – 6 v 6 where you are coached in that same specialized position during a wide variety of competitive experiences.

“Elite” – this term is not meant to describe your current status, rather it is intended to describe your objective &your aim > to develop into an “elite” player, so expect to be challenged, and expect us to help you take your game to the next level!

             COMMUTER CAMPS & Clinics – Learn, Improve, Achieve

1) development of the fundamental volleyball skills:  Serving, Passing, Setting, Attacking, Blocking and Digging
2) developing an understanding of the basic offensive and defensive systems of the game
3)  recognizing the keys to success in the transition phases of the game – moving from offense to defense and from defense to offense
