Former professional indoor and beach volleyball player April Chapple created the Volleyball Voice Boot Camp Class Clinics and Competitions, the first boot camp styled volleyball class and clinic specifically for middle, junior high and high school volleyball players in Las Vegas.  

 

After six years of studying the Las Vegas high school and club volleyball landscape, Chapple created a weekly low cost intensive volleyball skill and physical development class as an alternative for dissatisfied volleyball club parents looking for an affordable way to improve their volleyball player's skills.

What To Wear and Bring To Boot Camp Class

Boot camp classes players must bring knee pads and wear appropriate playing attire and volleyball court shoes.

Kneepads are NOT optional, they are MANDATORY.

  • Players should not wear Keds or Vans shoes. These shoes are too slippery and are not appropriate training shoes for the gym and especially for what we do.
  • Female players with shoulder length hair should wear their hair up in a bun. We roll on mats, crawl on the floor and jump over obstacles. Hair should not become a distraction while rolling, crawling, jump training or playing on the court.
  • There's no gum allowed.
  • Players are asked to bring a bottle of water or Gatorade. Water fountains are available.
  • Classes are coed. Males are always placed in front and females in back during warmups.
  • Female players must wear long/short/sleeveless tshirts. Jogbras should not be visible through tshirt armholes that have been cut out excessively on the sides.
  • Female players can/will be asked to change shirts if jogbras are visible because tshirt sides have been excessively cut out.
  • No jewelry is allowed. (no watches, hoop earrings, nose rings or belly rings. Stud earrings are okay.)

 

What To Expect

All classes are designed to offer more volleyball skills training and physical conditioning in an hour than most clubs offer in two or three hours.

 

 

 

When you come to class please be prepared to sweat, to sprint, to run, to jump, to use bands, to use Swiss balls, to use dummbbells, to use foam rollers, to use medicine balls and to roll around on mats and on the floor.

Oh yes, and we eventually get around to playing some volleyball...

 

 

 

 

Who We Are

Each session specializes in foot work, body balance, basic skills technique and analysis and breaking down the technique of defensive skills.

 

At each session, players will work with Coach Dermot Thomas, the certified performance enhancement specialist aka coach "D" who conducts agility training, jump training, body alignment, shoulder strengthening, running review, sprint training, core exercises and on occasion mental and relaxation exercises.

 

Assistant volleyball coaches C'era Oliveira, Andrew Hass, Quinton Bradley, Olivia Constancio and Rick McNellis

 

 

and Phillip Merrill 

along with coaches Quinton Bradley and Ray Payan

run specific drills that break down each of the basic volleyball skills: passing, setting, spiking, serving, blocking and defense.

Where Are We Located

All boot camp volleyball classes and clinics are held at Stupak Recreation Center 251 W. Boston Avenue, located one block west of Las Vegas Blvd underneath the Stratosphere across the street from the Stratosphere parking lot.

We are conveniently located one block West of Las Vegas Boulevard between E. Charleston and E. Sahara Boulevard.

 

Why Should You Attend

If you made your high school volleyball team or club volleyball team but:

  • You need extra training because you and five other players are competing for a starting position on your club or team, then this class is for you!
  • You need to get off the bench and really show your high school or club coach how good you are, then this class is for you!
  • You set some personal volleyball goals for yourself but you know you can't accomplish them without getting outside expert help on how to make yourself faster on the court, jump higher or hit harder, then this boot camp class is for you!
  • You made the team but there are other players that hit harder, run faster and score more points than you do, then this class is for you!

 

Our boot camp class is for YOU...

  • If you can't free ball pass 15 balls in a row to your setter without making them move one step...
  • If you can't set a high ball outside 15 balls in a row to your outside hitter without the ball coming off or going over the net...
  • If you are a libero but you can't dig five balls up in a row to your front court setter... 
  • If you are an outside hitter riding the pine because you have trouble spiking the ball cross court or down the line or just over the net for points...
  • If you need to build volleyball strength, volleyball muscle, volleyball speed or increase your vertical

 

 

 

 

The Volleyball Voice Boot Camp Class is designed as a college prep class specifically created for Las Vegas high school and middle school players who don't play club, but is also available for those who do.

 

Created by former pro volleyball player April Chapple

It was designed for those motivated, aggressive, forward thinking Las Vegas high school volleyball players who want to invest in themselves because they have or are thinking about possibly playing college volleyball.

This volleyball class which is modelled after Division I collegiate team training is hardcore!

We ask you to invest in yourself but to also challenge yourself!

 

At $10 for 90 minutes it is the best and most affordable volleyball class in Las Vegas, hands down!

Just ask our growing roster of incoming freshmen and underclassmen who regularly work out with us during the summer and offseason and are surpassing their volleyball and athletic goals by seeing more playing time, staying off the bench and are making their varsity or JV teams.
