Our High-Performance Academy focuses on developing each athlete’s individual skills on the volleyball court in a high energy atmosphere with a feedback intensive format. The HPA will also deliver an exposure of strength and conditioning practices to better prepare athletes for on court performance. Along with expert coaching the athletes get to experience their training at a world class facility throughout the academy. We provide the opportunity for each athlete to grow and prepare for volleyball at the next level. This academy is for athletes that are looking to raise their level of play and are willing to commit to working hard and developing their skills. Players will be divided into groups based on ability and age.
We accept athletes, boy and girls, from 12 years of age to 18 years of age. Players are placed in homogeneous groups based on age/grade and skill. They play and sleep together and by week end, they are a “team” with new friendships having evolved and a life experience gained from having planned and worked together for the week.
All participants will receive expert instruction in both basic and advanced volleyball skills and strategy in either beach or court. Individual attention will be offered to all athletes and ample time will be devoted to team competitions.
The camp’s volleyball programs are supplemented by a well planned recreational schedule in one of the finest camp facilities on the continent. Beach athletes should have a strong court volleyball playing background.
Over our 44 years we have impacted on volleyball tremendously with many provincial, national and international players honing their skills on our site, under the tutelage of our outstanding staff. Our ratio of campers to coaches is 6:1, unheard of in any volleyball learning centre.
Madawaska accepts a maximum of 530 athletes – a combination of up to 400 in the regular team (court) program and 200 in the beach volleyball section.
Athletes come across Canada and the U.S. As well, we have had guest athletes and coaches from as far away as Australia, New Zealand, Venezuela, Chile, Mexico, England, Ireland, Poland, California and most recently, the Cayman Islands.
