Prospect Camps Women's Volleyball
Curious about life as a collegiate athlete? Wondering if you have what it takes to compete at the NAIA collegiate level? Maybe you’re just wanting to get some high level instruction on one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. No matter what you are looking for, there is something for everyone at our Westmont College Volleyball Summer Prospect Camp. You will train using the same coaching methods and in the same facilities the Westmont Volleyball varsity team uses, interact with current players and coaches, meet with an admission's counselor, resident campers live in the dorms the students stay in during the school year and get the opportunity to eat in the dining commons. This camp will be informative and helpful as you explore your college options and is geared towards 9th through 12th graders.
