Camp Rules/Policies: Athletes are not allowed to leave camp at anytime without being handed over directly to a parent/guardian, as approved by the Head Coach.
If athletes are to have any visitors during camp, they must be family members. You will need to receive specific approval from the Head Coach. You will also need to provide the name and driver's license # of the visitor(s).
There will be no alcohol, drugs, or tobacco allowed during the camp. Violation of this policy will result in the expulsion of the athlete and the athlete will be returned home at the parent's expense immediately. There will be no refunds under this scenario.
Behavior standards for this camp, as with all USA Volleyball Camps, are extremely high. Athletes are expected to demonstrate respect for coaches, each other, and our camp hosts. You are expected to conduct yourself as responsible adults. Any for of hostile, abusive or obscene behavior will likely lead to expulsion and a quick trip home.
