VbDC have recognized the need for a programme to help make the transition between the skills acquisition phase and performance training smoother for committed volleyball players aged 14 to 17. We have created the week-long Emerging Elite Camp, composed of half-days, which have a performance-based curriculum.
It is being led by one of our experienced coaches and runs between 1.30 p.m. and 6 p.m. each day. It takes place in west Surrey’s best volleyball facility and will feature a coach to player ratio of approximately 1:6; all coaches are either experienced at national team or national league level, or participate in US university volleyball or national league clubs. The camp is international and will include players from other countries attending our language and volleyball camp.
Volleyball is not an easy sport to learn – it takes the average person about a year of regular playing just to pick up the fundamental skills – and playing volleyball at a decent competitive level involves a long process of year-round training. That process must be carefully organized in stairsteps, which start with players learning the basic skills, positions and game strategy. Once those skills become ingrained, the player can then transition into performance-based training based on intensive regimes that hone the mental approach, fine tune the rally tactics, build stamina and strength and, hopefully, create players who could become university scholarship recipients, national league players or even Olympic champions.
Residential options are available for this camp staying at Royal Holloway University campus, wnich is just up the road from ACS Egham. Trransfers between the venues, full meals and evening entertainment are included. Please Contact us for more details.
