FAQS / GENERAL CAMP INFORMATION

Camp Information

Our camp staff is what makes the Michigan Volleyball Camp one of the best in the country. Our coach / player ratio is 8:1. All camps include intensive training on fundamentals, team systems, and offensive and defensive strategy. All campers are placed into groups of similar skill levels in order to insure the most improvement, challenge and fun during the camp.

Camp is open to any and all, limited only by the age eligibility as outlined or space availability, never restricted by a camper's skill level or competitive experience.

About Michigan

The University of Michigan is located in Ann Arbor, a quaint college town in Southeast Michigan. In 2009, Forbes magazine ranked Ann Arbor as its top college sports town in the U.S. The University of Michigan is known for its unique combination of academic and athletic excellence. With over 500,000 living alumni, Michigan graduates can be found all over the globe! Michigan is a member of the Big Ten and National Championships year in and year out. University of Michigan athletics programs can boast countless National Champions. All-Americans, and Olympians, all while educationally being ranked No. 4 among public universities by U.S. News and World Report magazine.

Limited Space

In order to ensure a very low player to coach ratio, we limit camp enrollment. Please do not delay in sending in your application and deposit. Sessions are filled on a first come first save basis.

Supervision

Campers will be supervised by the coaching staff during all training sessions and at all times in the dorms by the camp housing staff.

Room Assignments

Rooms are double occupancy. Roommates are assigned upon dorm check-in; the best way to guarantee roommate perference is to check in together. Every attempt will be made to assign requested roommates.

Cancellation / Refund Policy

Your camp fee, less a $75 non-refundable administrative deposit will be refunded without question if you cancel at least two weeks prior to the beginning of camp. At any time after that date, refunds (less $75 admin fee) will be made for medical reasons only and must be accompanied by a signed medical statement from your physician.

No refunds will be made after the start of camp.

Medical Attention

A certified athletic trainer or first responder will be on duty at all camp sessions.

Camp Options

Overnight / Resident Camp Option (Only available for General / Elite Skills Camp)

The overnight / resident camp option is our most popular summer camp and is limited due to bed space. It is highly supervised by the Michigan Volleyball Camp staff in addition to the University of Michigan Housing Department. We will be using the South Quad dorms in 2018, which is located on East Madison St. just a few minutes walk from Cliff Keen Arena.

All dorm rooms are double occupancy rooms and roommates will be assigned on the Sunday of registration. When you choose the overnight / resident camp option meals will begin with dinner on Sunday and continue through Wednesday dinner. You will need to provide all linens for your camp stay - but you will get a much more detailed camper checklist as we get closer to the start of camp.


Day / Commuter Camp Option

Our day / commuter camp does not include meals or housing during camp with the exception of an All-Camper pizza party on Sunday evening that every camper is a part of. There are several options for commuter campers as far as meals are concerned.

  1. Purchase a meal card for any lunch and / or dinner available and go to the dorms to eat with the resident campers.
  2. Bring a cooler with lunch / dinner inside in and stay in Cliff Keen Arena during the lunch / dinner breaks.
  3. Parents can check camper out and take them to lunch or dinner and bring them back to camp.
  4. Any combination of these options can be used in conjuction with each other.

Commuter campers cannot go off campus by themselves to get food.
