USC has won back-to-back national championships by developing a style of play that maximizes athletes' abilities in every aspect of the game. Any level player can learn and improve her skills using these techniques regardless of their level of athleticism. At camp, we will focus on passing, defense, blocking, attacking, and serving as well as team play.Ability grouping is used to divide campers into two waves. All campers will receive the same instruction including the introduction of innovative training techniques. The USC coaching staff will be involved daily with assistance from invited guest coaches.
