High level coaching
Volleyball players will have a high level training experience at our Sand Volleyball Camp.
Our coaching staff includes Canadian National Team Coach Keith Wasylik during the first week, and
Bates College assistant coach Rob Thompson during the second week.
Our volleyball practices help players improve their ability to play for schools and in
tournaments. Players will improve the skills they have, and also learn new skills. Training
sessions are divided by ability. Advanced and intermediate players practice in groups, and
also receive one-on-one instruction from our coaches. Beginners are also welcome at camp,
and have tutoring and separate groups for their drills.
Training activities on our beautiful beach volleyball courts and lakeside field will include
plyometric exercises such as jump rope, medicine ball drills, hill sprints, bounding, and
running in the water.
Every volleyball training session will be followed by optional periods when campers can elect to swim, kayak,
canoe, play beach volleyball, or enjoy other summer activities by a lake in Maine. Recreational activities that
enhance volleyball player strength & conditioning will include tug-of-war,
capture the flag, dodgeball, ultimate Frisbee, and kayaking.
All waterfront activities are monitored by our professionally trained Red Cross Certified Lifeguards.
Real Maine summer camp experience
Outside of the activity and coaching sessions the campers will participate in an old-fashioned summer camp
experience with a mandatory one hour reading period after lunch for summer reading. Other recovery periods
during the day will feature card games and board games, and exclude cell phones,
texting, and computers.
Each evening will conclude with a campfire that features contests and readings that contribute to the intellectual
and character growth of the athletes.
Campers will be closely supervised at night by counselors in the cabin who read the campers
to sleep. Counselors also patrol between the girls' cabin area and the boys' cabin area
and throughout the peninsula.
Spike U Tournament Schedule
Our campers are encouraged to gain competitive sand volleyball experience through play in
Spike U Tournaments. Spike U tournaments feature outstanding venues, excellent organization,
and exciting competitive atmosphere.
