    UWF Summer Volleyball Camps

    The University of West Florida is offering a few volleyball camps during this summer. We have camps for High School players, as well as for the younger kids!
    The biggest difference about UWF camps is the amount of coaches that will be involved throughout the ENTIRE camp. We have a very low coach-to-player ratio, meaning the players will get LOTS of coaching during camp.
    Needless to say that they will get to know the UWF Players really well, and many times play with and against them during camp. We believe that every participant deserves to get plenty of coaching, while having fun, getting challenged and learning more about how we run our UWF program!
    Every camper will have the chance to perform and be closely watched by the UWF Volleyball staff, having the opportunity to be evaluated and possibly becoming an Argonaut.
    Below are the High School camp dates:
    HIGH SCHOOL: (9th-12th grade)
    Positional Camp 1: July 9th
    Positional Camp 2: July 15th
    General Skills: July 16th-18th

    A2 - Jackson Arnold, Sam Pearish,  Madi Daum and Kylie Daum

    A3 - Marti Mclaurin, Lauren Quigley and Lily Arnold

    Look out for the Gulf Coast Region athletes because we are coming for you California! ALL of the GC Region athletes deserved the opportunity to be invited and compete on this stage. The high character that was represented by the athletes from the GC Region was top of the line. Their gratitude for being there, their hard work, their smiles, new friendships and old friendships, their Spirit of the Game.

    Gulf Coast Region Beach HP
    The GC Region will NOT be holding HP tryouts for this upcoming season. The National Beach Tour Championships omitted the HP Division in Siesta Key, FL this year and will only be hosting HP National Championships in California in July. 

    If teams are interested in participating in the HP Championships in California, the Region can send one team, per age division, per gender to participate in a one-day Region HP Championships on July 30th, in Hermosa Beach. Winners of this earn a bid to participate in the HP National Championships on July 31st-August 2nd in Hermosa Beach. Please email the region office if you are interested in applying for one of our bids to HP Championships.

    NEW! Gulf Coast Region Beach Select Team

    The Gulf Coast Region is developing a Beach Select Team to travel to Siesta Key in July to play in the Patriot Division of the National Beach Tour Championships.  This will be a very competitive division due to the limited number of bids awarded through the Tour.
