This camp focuses on competitive team play, skill development and team bonding opportunities for high school teams that are looking to take their game to the next level. The schedule includes training sessions, 6 v 6 competitive wash drills and matches/tournament play. Teams will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. This camp is open to any and all applicants.
We will provide a JMU camp coach for your team for the entire duration of camp. We encourage your high school coach(es) to be involved as they would like. Our team camp in the past has had several college coaches on staff, from several different levels. Last year, 97% of campers rated their JMU Camp Coach as either superior or excellent and 100% of High School Coaches rated their JMU camp coach as excellent or superior.
How to register:
In order to register a team, you must have at least 9 players confirmed to attend. Have your high school coach email Lauren at sauerla@Jmu.edu to register your team. To hold your spot in camp, we will need a non-refundable down payment of $350 to go towards one of your camper's payments for camp. One coach for each team (9 players minimum) is welcome to attend the camp at no charge. Each additional coach is $150.
Once the high school coach has registered his/her team with Lauren, we will send an email to that coach with a document to list all players that are attending camp. Individual campers do not need to register, we only need the document from the high school coach with each player, phone number, email address and t-shirt size. High school coaches can collect the money and turn it in together or individual campers can find payment information here: pay for team camp.
