Camps & Clinics

we have been overwhelmed with the response for the first two clinics and requests for more.  we still have the setters on tap for this sunday the 7th and defense on the 14th and now will add outside hitters again on the 21st and defense one more time on the 28th (which I do realize that that is Memorial Day weekend).  after the last clinic on the 28th,  the summer skill clinics will take over and all the info for those are on the site and things are filling up pretty quickly.   if you wish to come to any of these skill clinics left in May,  email me for a spot and if you no show, you have to pay or you cannot come to future camps or clinics.  $25 for each clinic in May and all are at ATT from 4-6pm.   I hope this answers all the questions that have been coming in and remember that these are limited to 25 slots and to attend these May clinics you must be in the 9th grade or above.  Instructors again will be myself and Morgan and other UAA staff.   Morgan will miss the one on the 28th as she will be in Brazil playing with her USA select team.  please remember that this is open to any players who play club or high school volleyball and is designed to jump start training for the fall season.  all dates and info for the summer schools are on the site along with clinics for those still in middle school or who will be going into the 9th grade.


Summer Skills Schools

We will be holding summer skill development schools again this summer.  They will begin in June and the schools are: setters, middles, outsides, and defense specialists. These are open to any club player, is limited to 20 players and is first come first serve.  You may buy specific session dates or a package and can attend more than 1 school.  THESE ARE FOR THOSE GOING INTO GRADES 9-12.

These schools have no game play and will focus only on your position and all  aspects of that position.   Each session is 2 hours long and will have 6 dates.  The cost of individual dates are $25 and for a full session $125.  Fees are non-refundable for any missed session.  Checks are written to Virgil Hooe (not MSVB) .

Setters will be trained in all moves to use for any pass which includes jump setting, spin moves, kick out moves, rocker steps, dumping, footwork for offense and defense as a front row and back row setter as well as hitting and blocking the right side.  Middles will work on footwork and hand holds to block all sets and all areas of the net and will be trained to hit all sets as well as streamlining both armswings and approaches. Outsides will be schooled on all footwork patterns in serve receive formations, defense and transitions form defense to blocks to hit any set.  Defense Specialists will work on digging the entire court for either a read or rotation defense.   We will work on all floor moves – hand digging, spin aways, collapse digs, double knee drop – as well as serve receive refinement on footwork and passing. All will have high level training and filming for feedback.

Setters and middles will be held on 6 Mondays starting in June.  Outside and defensive specialists will be held on 6 Wednesdays starting in June.  Dates and times are in the  registration application.  All sessions are held at the AT&T gym and will be either 4:30 – 6:30 or 6 to 8.  If you have more questions please email Virgil at

There will also be a Daytime Skill School for those going into grades 6, 7  & 8.  Noon to 2 every Friday in June.  These schools will teach all aspects of the game and is not position specific.

All American Camp

This is an invite only camp for players who are nominated by their high school and club coaches.  Lists of players are being approved now and invites will go out shortly.  This camp will be coached by college players who have been awarded All – American status and were at the top of their game either in colleges in the US or on teams in the European Leagues.  I am hoping to gather some bios to post soon.  If you have been extended an invite this means that your coaches consider you to be at the top of your group and ready to be challenged by the camp.  Stay tuned for those invites.
