While hitting and blocking represent the power elements of the volleyball game, serve receive and defense are technical skills, which take finesse, coordination a good eye, timing and patience to learn.

Volleyball camps have evolved to the point that they have become position specific or skill specific, so in the last few years we've had the creation of the volleyball libero camp.

To become a better defensive player or libero there are an assortment of volleyball camps that have been created around the country for all levels of players.

Before I go I wanted to review some tips I've mentioned in previous articles which I hope will help you to choose the right volleyball camp.

One was to choose a camp with a low coach-to-player ratio. Anywhere between a 1:6 (excellent) to 1:12 (average) should give you a good opportunity to touch a lot of balls and to get your questions answered.

Another was to attend a volleyball camp at one or more of the colleges you may be interested in attending in the future so you can get a feel for what it will be like to play at that school.

Another tip I wrote about was to find a camp that offers an experience that you can not recreate at home by yourself. So if a camp promises to give you an opportunity to do a lot of individual drills or volleyball conditioning that you can do at home, find another camp that offers more drlll progressions where you go from simple drills to complex drills with five other people involved or that offers more game-like playing situations, situations that you can't do by yourself at home.

And now you can check out volleyball camps in your state and get Free video instruction from Olympic gold medalists and pro players on how to become a better volleyball libero or defensive player.
