Eastern Michigan Volleyball Camps provide players and teams with a competitive and educational experience. Our goal is to teach the game by building a solid foundation for players at all levels. Campers will be be grouped according to age and skill level. Every session, all drills, and feedback are designed to be adjusted to benefit the appropriate age and skill level of the campers.
Those attending Eastern Michigan Volleyball Camp will work with our experienced coaching staff, players and guest coaches. We encourage the campers to work hard, get better, make new friends, and have fun at EMU Volleyball Camps!
All of our camps are open to any and all entrants for both male and female campers. Academy camps are for students in 6th-12th grade, and our all skills clinics are open to 3rd-12th. We can only accept a minimum number of campers, so the camps can fill quickly. Be sure to complete the registration to secure a spot in the camps. Mail in registration are allowed.
