Individual Camp Information

  What to expect at HP Individual Camp 

  • Great coaching:  the camp is led by USA Volleyball coaches, and camp coaches come from Iowa’s Colleges (Div. I, Div. III, and NAIA!), High Schools, and volleyball clubs.
  • Great volleyball:  every player at the HP Individual Camp is a great player, so the level of skill in drills and scrimmages will be higher than almost any other camp you have ever been to.
  • And if you're attending an overnight camp:  Great sleep!  You will play a LOT of volleyball every day, so you will be tired!
  • Great friends:  the connections and friendships developed between players and coaches will last for years to come!
  • Great ratio:  the coach to player ratio at camp is around 1:4.
  • At that camp, 8-10 players in each division will be selected for the travel teams, and will compete at the USAV HP Championships!
