By Sponsored Post, 07/25/18, 10:30AM EDT


As summer draws near an end, volleyball tryouts inch closer! The Waterloo Warriors are pleased to promote the Warriors High Performance Volleyball Camps this August.

All camps are led by Warriors head coaches - Chris Lawson, Shayne White and Richard Eddy - along with other high-profile guest coaches and top student athletes. The lead coaches are fully Level 3 certified with experience coaching at the university, national and international levels and are all closely affiliated with Team Ontario and Team Canada programs.

Each camp follows a high-performance training program featuring on and off-court sessions that develop the ‘complete’ volleyball athlete. See below for more details and have a safe and enjoyable summer! We look forward to seeing you again this summer!

August 13-16th: High Performance Camp 1

A 4-day camp for athletes aged 14 and under that are playing at the club or high-school level with aspirations of making a club, regional or high-school team. This camp follows a high-performance format that uses mini games and simulated gameplay to significantly develop the athlete’s skills and court-sense. In addition, athletes will get daily swimming pool sessions, and benefit from video and tactical in-class instruction. All athletes receive two Overkill t-shirts and receive a detailed evaluation at the end of the week highlighting strengths and areas for improvement. The kids love this camp and we consistently see significant improvement from the athletes throughout the week.  
*This camp also offers an overnight residence & meal package for those interested.

August 17th-19th: Pro-Skills Camp

The ‘Pro Skills’ camp is designed for athletes aged 15 & older. It features specific high-volume repetition training for serving, passing and setting. The focus is the acquisition of advanced skills required to be successful at the next level. Athletes will benefit from the quality of instruction as well as the use of training aids and video analysis.
*This camp also offers an overnight residence & meal package for those interested.

August 20th-24th: High Performance Camp 2

The 15 & older high-performance center is for athletes with a desire to compete beyond the club and high school level. This is the only camp in Canada that combines on-court practice sessions with yoga and strength training, sport psychology, sports nutrition, volleyball tactics, and swimming pool sessions. On-court sessions are taught by a fully Level 3 / Performance Coach certified University-Level coach using the best equipment available and video analysis. Each athlete will receive a detailed evaluation form at the end of camp. In addition, the camp is sponsored by Overkill, so each athlete will receive two great shirts and the opportunity to win several prizes. The final day will include a skills competition and a tournament. 
*This camp also offers an overnight residence & meal package for those interested.
