Camps, Clinics and Private Lessons

Volleyball camps, clinics and private lessons are an effective way for players to improve their individual skills.  They provide expert coaching using both common and innovative techniques in a supportive environment.  Volleyball camps and clinics are usually targeted at girls and boy ages 8 to 18, but a few organizations noted below also offer programs for adults 18 years and older.

"Camps" are broad-based multi-day events run during the summer months which often include meals and overnight accommodations.  "Clinics" are shorter in duration or weekly events that tend to be  more focused on specific skills or age groups.  "Private Lessons" involve a dedicated coach working with one or more individuals paid on an hourly basis.

Below are organizations accessible to those in Northern Virginia that usually provide volleyball camps, clinics and private lessons.  Any organization that wants to be added to the list should send an email to
