DaKine Volleyball Camps

Our volleyball camps are designed for girls and boys ages 8 to 18 who want to improve their volleyball skills on both the hard court and the beach courts. Whether your athlete is just starting out or is an elite level athlete looking to fine tune their skills we have the coaching and the programs to help them bring their game to the next level.

Athletes will be grouped based on age and ability in every camp we run. With our experience in running camps we are able to run some basic individual skills drills at the beginning of each camp where coaches can evaluate the levels of the players and at every step of the way we keep athletes in a group that will challenge them. Sometimes we have players who want to participate in our camps together and stay together. No problem! Simply let us know the player that your athlete wants to work out with and we can keep these kids together. Please note that we must hear from BOTH parties when players want to ensure that they stay in the same group.

Additional Details & FAQs

Beach Volleyball is the fastest growing sport in NCAA history; the opportunities to play beach volleyball collegiately are increasing every day!

Training in the sand can improve an athlete’s vertical and speed. Couple that with our strength & conditioning training, athletes will be more than ready for the summer competition season.

No Bench in Beach! Two athletes, playing every point of a tournament; competent in every skill- not just a position specialist.

Most athletes find individual skill progression & development to be more rapid when training on the sand, due to the significant increase of reps per drill.

Some tips on what to pack for practices:

  1. Layers: the weather can change quickly, so wearing layers is ideal. Jacket or sweatshirt, sweatpants, shorts.
  2. Water: at least two water bottles on Alki, at DaKine you can use our refill station on water breaks. Please remember that hydration starts well before practice, what you consume at practice is to maintain a healthy balance to what you sweat out. Be sure to be drinking lots of water all day long
  3. Sunscreen: for the best sun protection, the first application of sunscreen should be done at home and the second should be applied at the beginning of practice. Always have sunscreen in your bag.
  4. Sunglasses: you can sunburn your eyes, so let’s keep them protected. We suggest avoiding sunglasses that have nose pieces, as occasionally players do get hit in the face, and that can leave bad cuts when the nose pieces dig in.
  5. Sandsocks: burning the bottom of your feet is incredibly painful, and players that are newer to sand, will appreciate the extra protection as they get used to moving and playing in the sand. (Sandsocks are available for purchase at DaKine for $20)
  6. Snacks: Fuel like an athlete!!! Please make sure your athletes have breakfast or a snack before practice; and players should always have a little snack packed to get them through practice. Fruit makes a for a great quick pick me up to get them to the end of practice.
