2020 Summer Training Camp


Under the guidance of two former USA Olympians, Ruth Lawanson, and Deitre Collins-Parker, our training camps are based around the fundamentals of individual development. This unique experience offers our campers an excellent student to teacher ratio that allows an in-depth understanding of position, technique and most importantly fun. With over 70 years of volleyball coaching and playing experience our staff has helped mentor, coach and advance over 80 NCAA All Conference Players.

Our camp attendees will be provided with knowledge of their sport, their individual position, but most importantly how to better prepare themselves for an opportunity at NCAA institutions. Only 50 camp participants will be offered this opportunity to insure the right instructional environment is provided. All participants will reside in our dorms, and experience college style living throughout the camp. Cost includes all room and board, all meals, transportation to all events, court time, off-site athletic testing and of course fun, fun, and fun.


• Taught by 2 former USA Olympians
• Indoor and Sand training
• Individual Athletic Testing
• Individual Development Skill drills
• Team Concept Skill drills
• Hiking, Swimming and much, much more


Our camp participants will train for two (1.5) hour sessions daily and will take part in our daily off court conditioning & training program. Our training will focus on basic as well as advanced fundamentals and skill set development, provided by our professional Tahoe Prep Academy coaching staff. When not on the court or doing conditioning our campers will have the opportunity to participate in hiking, going to the beach, or participating in the various other fun activities we have planned.


Participants will be able to learn, interact and be instructed by two highly qualified individuals who have experienced the game from both a player and coaching perspective. With a limited amount of participants able to join the camp, our coaches will be actively involved in the development, and mentoring process so our campers not only experience the game, but gain the most knowledge about their sport, position and future as possible.
