SMLW Outdoor Camp
The SMLW is a three-day camp - three hours a day.
This camp happens outdoors on four courts - two sand courts and two grass courts. This is a more advanced skill camp as it will not deal with the basics of each position it will be dealing with the application of the skill applied in each of the four positions - Setters, Middles, Liberos and Wing Hitters.
There will be four coaches involved, one for each of the groups
- A setting coach who will look after the 12 setters
- A middle coach who will look after the 12 middle players
- A libero coach who will look after the 12 liberos
- A wing hitter coach who will look after the 12 liberos.
The first-day three-hour session will have each of the four groups working separately on their positional instruction. i.e. all the setters on one court, all the middles on one court, all the wing hitters on one court and all the liberos on the final court.
On the second day, a three-hour session will have the setters working with the other three groups. i.e. four-setters working with three liberos on one court, four-setters working with middles, four-setters working with wing hitters.
The final day will have each of the four positions breaking up into groups of three. One of each will join the other three positions resulting in 12 players divided into the four courts. i.e. three-setters, three liberos, three middles and three wing hitters, making the two teams of six on each of the four courts.
The SMLW camp was such a rewarding experience. It was amazing to be surrounded by other young volleyball players with a desire to improve and encourage others, and every single coach gave helpful feedback while simultaneously making the past three days as fun and gratifying as possible.
I loved the camp! It was so fun to get to learn from all of the different coaches and get different perspectives on skills. Everyone was so positive and supportive during all of the drills and games play. It was also fun playing outside. Thank you to all the coaches I loved learning from all of you, getting your insight on all of the different positions was amazing!
