THE OLE EXPERIENCE
St. Olaf Volleyball Camps with Coach Foster are designed for players of all levels, who have been playing in associations or school programs and have yet to complete their senior year of high school. Athletes will be trained by current Ole athletes and coaches. What sets St. Olaf Volleyball Camps apart is the incredibly positive environment created on campus. Camp includes high-energy training sessions, combined with a unique feature called “Mind Gym“. Mind Gym sessions allow athletes to learn more about the sports psychology side of the game including self talk, visualization, and more. It is the goal of the Ole Volleyball staff that athletes leave camp feeling empowered and a more skilled and knowledgeable competitor.
Volleyball training and other activities are balanced with recreational activities that are supervised by camp coaches and counselors. This camp provides a complete experience on the beautiful St. Olaf College campus in historic Northfield, Minnesota.
