2. Elite Performance Camps

4. ProjectU Training Camps
5. Team Practice Sessions
6. Private sessions
7. Tournaments

Summer Program: May 1st to August 1st

The summer season is about the fun in some cases, about the competition in others.  Our Beach Camps have been developed for players looking to have fun at the beach and play volleyball, while the remaining camps and practices are for players looking to compete, have fun, and take their game to the next level. Our Team Practices and Elite Performance Camps are about preparing athletes for tournaments, if they choose to play.

  • Club Practice: Lord Fletchers, Lake Minnetonka, MN and Club Fitness, St. Cloud, MN
  • Beach Camp: Lord Fletchers (Lake Minnetonka, MN), Park Point Beach, (Lake Superior, Duluth, MN) and Lake Waconia Beach (Waconia, MN)
  • Elite Performance Camp: Lord Fletchers, Lake Minnetonka, MN
  • AVPNext Pro-Am, USA Junior Beach Tour and other events
  • Private Sessions

Practices: Regularly, our practices are at Lord Fletchers on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. However, during the month of May, the practice sessions are from 3:30pm to 5:00pm, due to school and travel time to the court.  As a second location, we will be practicing at The Club in St. Cloud, MN, time to be determined.

Partners: Players choose their own partners. For athletes who do not have a partner, the coaches will attempt to locate a partner of like age and skill level, but it is up to you to secure a partner for each tournament.

Cost: Each event has its own cost.  Day camps camps range from $100 to $280. Private sessions are $70 per hour. Lastly, team practices are $25.00 per player, per session.  At the beginning of each season, the coaches will sit down with each athlete and family to create a schedule that works around your summer schedule.  For most athletes, the cost is around $250 for practice and $150 for team apparel. Each tournament is around $60 per team or $30 per player.
