We are proud to announce our 2020 Elite Camp and Clinic Schedule for summer. Elite has something to offer from the beginner athlete to the college-bound athlete. Our facility is proud to provide outstanding coaching to help each athlete reach their Elite level of success.

More details about all the different camps and clinics can be found under camps on the website.

Our camps are advertised first to current athletes in our program.  We will open registration to the general public on March 20th, 2020.

Evening Skills:
In 2020, we have added more skill training in the evening for our athletes and their families. These camps are perfect for beginners or those wanting a strong foundation in the sport. Skills training is used to maximize reps. This allows athletes to fine-tune skills by building muscle memory. These camps are a 1:8 ratio and a limited amount of space.

Skill Mechanics Camps
We have revamped our skill camps to focus on mechanics that are for all athletes. This is for athletes looking to improve specific skills. Our camps encourage and promote the game while developing specific skills needed to compete effectively. These camps are a 1:8 ratio and a limited amount of space.

Positional Camps
Our positional training camps our for athletes that have a clear understanding of the position they want to play and are looking for a camp setting to advance their skills in their specific position. These camps are a 1:8 ratio and a limited amount of space.

Multi-Day Camps
We offer a variety of multi-day camps for athletes looking to get lots of reps and prepare for the fall season. These camps age from 2nd-collegiate. They are designed to get the most elite training for the specially designated group. These camps are run by Tier level coaches and guest collegiate coaches.

Quick Hits
Quick hits were developed for the athlete that wants to get specific training but do not have the time to commit to full or multi-day camps. These semi-private lessons. These camps are a 1:8 ratio and a limited amount of space.

Make sure to sign up fast; camps are filled on a first-come basis and will fill before the summer sessions begin.

Beach Volleyball Training

By Brandon Thewes 01/14/2020, 1:45pm EST

Elite Sports Ohio Volleyball Company is proud to announce a partnership for our athletes to train with and at the Sandbox Training facility.

The sandbox begins its fifth season.  For the 2020 season the Sandbox will have a new affiliation with p1440, the volleyball organization founded and run by Olympic multiple-gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings.  We are also excited to be hosting not only the OVR/USAV bid events in June, but also a p1440 State Championship event the weekend of May 30-31! 
Each SandBox Club member will also be registered as a p1440 member, giving access to tons of online content, a bag of cool swag from p1440, and the opportunity to participate in the pe-tournament clinic on May 29 or May 30, run by the national p1440 staff at the SandBox! 
Aside from our new affiliation, Summer 2020 will see us hold regular "open play" sessions for club members each week, alternating between a weekday morning and a weekday afternoon.  In addition, SandBox club members will have the exclusive opportunity for additional sand training with a certified professional, for only a small add-on cost, twice a week throughout June and July.  Finally, we will expand our calendar of hosted juniors events in 2020, from four events per age group to five events per age group.  As always, SandBox club membership means priority tourney registration and dramatically reduced entry cost for these hosted events.
Monday January 20th, 2020 at 6pm, Club Director Mike Thomas will be at Elite in the café to discuss information about the upcoming opportunities with the distinguished staff at the Sandbox.
