What Parents are Saying About RYG Athletics...

“Wow, where to start… My daughter came home from camp in the afternoon and took naps (not normal for her), so I knew she was being pushed and exerting herself. The classroom training was a big draw. There aren't camps or programs that focus on teaching athletes the fundamentals of the game, and the mental strength and conditioning needed to make it. She had practice during the week of camp, and I immediately saw a difference in her level of confidence and on-court play. She was a different player after just a few days at camp! The camp was professional, thoughtful, and smooth. The way they worked with the kids was very impressive. It was clear that you had their attention, but more importantly, their respect.

“The ability to keep the kids engaged in classroom learning and then take those new skills out onto the court for practice, feedback, and refinement is an excellent model. The kids wanted to learn about the theory because they were excited to put it into action. Clearly, the concepts were presented in a way that took the theory and made it a lasting reality. Well done.”

Don't Let Your Athlete Miss Their Shot

Even though young , many of them never achieve their dreams because they lack volleyball IQ, play with poor habits, and lack a resilient mindset.

They Need to Learn How to Play the Game Differently

At RYG, your child will develop a high volleyball IQ, special on-court habits, and a resilient mindset, so they can make the team, help their team win, and become their best.

"Coach Neal is incredibly organized. Your athlete will learn solid fundamentals of the game as well as strategies of the game that will separate them from the rest.  Most importantly though, they will learn these things while PLAYING the game!  Your athlete will be learning how to improve their game as they play the game. How fun is that!!  Coach Neal is as passionate about helping others as he is about volleyball.  You won’t be disappointed!"

FAQs

Is my child good enough for camp?

Skill and ability levels will vary from camp to camp, but we commit to finding the right level of difficulty and competition for each player within a session.

If your child loves volleyball and likes to work hard, they'll love our camp! 

If they don't love volleyball, or they're not motivated to raise their game, then RYG probably isn't the best place for them.

What's the ratio of campers to coaches?

Each camp is led by a director, then athletes are split into groups based on ability level with a court coach.

The ratio of court coaches to athletes is between 1/12 and 1/15.

What's the daily schedule like?

Here's an outline of a typical day at an RYG Athletics Volleyball Camp:

  • Classroom #1
    • 9:00-9:45
  • Court #1
    • 9:45-11:45
  • Lunch
    • 11:45-12:15
  • Classroom #2
    • 12:15-1:00
  • Court #2
    • 1:00-3:00
What does the classroom time consist of?

Each dynamic classroom session includes teaching and film in 3 areas:

  1. Volleyball skills
  2. Leadership skills
  3. Mindset skills
What's different about what RYG does on the court?

A lot!

First, RYG Athletics camps use a Constraints-Led Approach to coaching underpinned by the Ecological Dynamics theoretical framework.

In short: We have a WHY behind our WHAT. 

Everything we do on court is about developing adaptable skills that actually transfer to the game.

Too many camps, clinics, and practices attempt to isolate skills outside of the context they occur in. This isn't how volleyball skills are learned or the game is played.

We put all our athletes in games or game-like situations that help the skills and habits we're teaching emerge. When they use these skills in a game-like context, it makes it more likely that those skills will transfer to the game.

What if my athlete doesn't enjoy camp?

We offer a 100% money back guarantee. If you or your child is not satisfied with their experience at camp, we'll refund your registration fee. 

Is lunch provided?

No, lunch is not provided.

Athletes will need to bring a sack lunch each day.
