Are these camps only for Ironwood Ridge High School students?
No, the camps are open to anyone who desires to improve their volleyball skills prior to the high school season.
Are the camps open to both boys and girls?
With the exception of the All-Skills Camps, we offer the camps to both genders, however some of the summer camps are specifically geared toward preparing the girls for the upcoming season in August. Boys now have their own camp session with skill development geared towards the men's game. The Youth Clinics are always open to boys and girls.
My child will be attending Ironwood Ridge, does she need to attend camps to make the volleyball team?
No. Volleyball camps are offered as an opportunity for prospective players to improve their skills before the high school season and tryouts. While the camps may help a player make a volleyball team, non-attendance will never hurt a player's chances at tryouts. The camps help promote advanced volleyball in the community and at Ironwood Ridge.
My daughter will be entering the sixth grade, what camps are available to her?
The Youth Clinics are available for players entering the sixth grade and younger. These clinics use lighter volleyballs and a lower net. In addition, she could attend the Serve Reception Skills Camp in June and the high school All-Skills Camp in July. All campers in the high school camps are grouped by age and ability level, so each camper will be working out with players of equal skill.
Is there a limit to the number of camps a player can attend?
No...players are encouraged to enroll in as many camps as they desire. Just make sure that the camp matches your grade for the Fall and your personal goal for the particular session.
Is there a limit to the camp enrollment?
Yes. The camps are limited with court space and the player-to-coach ratio. Therefore, each camp has enrollment cap to ensure that the camp remains a quality experience for all campers. Register early - the camps have become very popular and have filled-up fast. The registration deadlines allow the camp director enough time to plan for the camp enrollment and secure enough quality coaches. Once the enrollment cap has been reached, the camp will form a waiting list.
Is there a charge for late registrations?
There is a $25 fee per session for all late registrations. Late registration is established for any registration received later than one week before each camp session. Please call/email camp director if you need to mail any registration form/payment after the deadline - you may need to register at the door.
My child will miss one of the camp dates, can they still attend the remaining dates?
Yes, of course. Please keep in mind that each camp session is progressive, where the curriculum is built upon each day, however, if you have a conflict and need to miss a session, the camp coaches will do their best to keep each camper up to task.
The tuition will stay the same - we are unable to prorate the cost.
What is the refund procedure?
All refund requests must be made IN WRITING before the camp session start date - there is an administrative fee for any refund. All refund requests should be directed to camp director Bill Lang.
There will be NO refund of camp fees after the start date for reasons other than documented medical conditions.
