    Excited to return

    My daughter went to the volleyball camp and LOVED it. She came home to show us everything she had learned during the four days. She is excited to return next year and stay the extra two days for hitting. I visits the last day and camp appeared to be very organized. Worth attending.

    Comfortable and safe

    This was my daughters first away from home camp. She had a great time and she learned TONS!! She felt comfortable and safe while she was there as well. The VT players treated all of the girls that was there so well and was very nice to them. Taught them tons for the volleyball court this fall!!

    Left with more confidence

    I came to the Nike Volleyball Camp at Virginia Tech as a beginner hoping to prepare for my high school/club season. I left with more confidence, better technique, and a higher overall volleyball IQ. I would definitely recommend this camp to any player, beginner to advanced.

    Learned new skills

    2012 Virginia Tech volleyball camp was my daughters third year at the camp. Each year, she learned amazing skills. She brought home techniques that she used in her regular seasons and club seasons. She came back exhausted and happy!!! We will certainly see you next year!!!

    Be back next year

    My daughter liked the fast pace and the feedback from the VA Tech coaches. She has been to numerous camps and has not learned anything new and was bored. She will go back to VA Tech next year. I hope Nike will be back as well.

    Recommend to everyone

    Nike Volleyball Camps are very hands on, and teach important skills and techniques that are needed in the game of Volleyball. I would recommend this camp to anyone and everyone.

    Challenges palyers

    Putting campers in skill level groups that will challenge them and are appropriate regardless of their age. My daughter is an advanced player for her age, and you didn't hold her back to a less skilled group because of her age -- she ended up in the second from top group and was really challenged. She still says your camp is the most challenging one she has done this summer.

    Great experience

    My NIKE Volleyball Camp experience was a great one! The coaches are knowledgeable, encouraging, and friendly. We spent time drilling and working on skills as well as playing actual Volleyball games. I totally improved my game during the camp and will definitely be coming back next year!

    Good for all levels

    I recommend attending this camp, because it's a very good experience for any skill level volleyball player. One can learn new strategies from the best, Virginia Tech's volleyball team and coaches. Not only is it about being a better volleyball player at this camp, but it's also about being a better volleyball team. One can get to know so many new people who share their passion for volleyball. It's an awesome experience for anyone who loves volleyball as much as the girls at this camp do.

    Confidence boost

    "I would suggest this camp to others, and I have as a matter of fact, because of the improvement I saw in my daughter after being at the camp. Not only has her serving improved but she is more confident on the court as well. As a parent I was impressed. She also told me that she was always safe and the girls were well looked after. She will definitely return to this camp."

    Great overall experience

    "My daughter has been at the Virginia Tech camp twice. She received more attention, more playing time and got more encouragment from the coaches than any other camp she has attended."

    Great for all skill levels

    This camp is great for players of any skill level. The coaches do a great job of evaluating the players and assigning them to courts based on skill level, not just age. All of the coaches, even those that are students, are knowledgable about the sport and share their knowledge with the campers. I have nothing but positive things to say about the camp I attended at Virginia Tech.

    Both of my daughters have participated in this camp over the last few years. It has been a fantastic experience every time. They have improved so much and made many lasting friendships. The camp is very organized and the session are well planned. The Virginia Tech staff involved is superb. I would highly recommend this camp!
