Volleyball Class: New Vegas Boot Camp Class and Clinic Schedule For 2018

Boot Camp Classes Are Now Weekly Monday - Friday

Seven years ago in 2010 Coach April brought her  unique volleyball class

to Stupak Community Center near the Stratosphere in Las Vegas,

Nevada.  



Along with "Coach D" Dermot Thomas and Coach Rick McNelis and his

daughter Rochelle, the Volleyball Voice Boot Camp Class on Saturday

mornings quickly became a weekly "must attend" event. 


I created a circuit training class with a strength and

conditioning component, the Volleyball Voice Boot Camp class

was the first of its kind in Vegas and Saturday classes regularly reached

its max capacity, which often forced us to turn latecomers away. 


Based on personal experience, I insisted that strength and conditioning

be an important and necessary element to the Boot Camp classes.

Conditioning is how to grow and develop faster, stronger players who 

jump higher than their opponents.


Strength training insures

  • the development of quick twitch muscles that lead to quicker reflexes, 
  • the development of stronger leg muscles that allow you to stay in lower defensive positions longer,
  • increases flexibility which allows you to extend one body part in one direction while the rest of your body is going in another direction
  • the development of balance, body control, body part awareness and self confidence


Best of all strength and conditioning is a great equalizer for smaller

players playing a big girl's game. Volleyball is a big girl's game the older

a player gets. 


With conditioning and weight training, short girls can develop muscles

that allow them to out jump tall girls. They also develop speed to out run

slower, taller teammates. 


Conditioning and strength training, flexibility and balance work, these

elements were all components of our Boot Camp classes and were

included to contribute to the development of a complete elite athlete. 


Were we successful?


Each year, we increased the number of incoming freshmen who made

their Las Vegas varsity high school team.


We kept developing 8th graders who were strong enough and 

technically skilled enough to beat out the older high school returning 

players for a spot on their varsity team.

The Last Saturday Morning Boot Camp Class November 18


For seven years we hosted the widely popular 9am Saturday Morning

Boot Camp Class at Stupak.


After that we hosted the Breakfast Club, from 10:30 to noon, an invitation

only advanced volleyball training clinic just for varsity players. 


On Saturday, November 18 we will host our last Saturday morning

Volleyball Voice Boot Camp class and Breakfast Club at Stupak. 


Starting Monday, November 20, we will have Boot Camp classes during

the week from Monday to Friday only. They will now be at various City of

Las Vegas community center facilities around Las Vegas. 


That's right, we are expanding!
