With the success and growth of Mizuno Prep League, we have decided to make Foundations apart of MPL. The intention behind our Foundations concept is that players will be exposed to basic skill development, core drills in the volleyball world, and game-like scenarios to connect all of the pieces. The consistency and quality of coaching and practices allow players to establish a routine volleyball schedule, have flexible seasons and receive quality instruction on the fundamentals of the game.
Athletes need an opportunity to explore and create when introduced to a new sport. Foundations not only introduces the athletes to the fundamentals of the game, but it allows them to learn, make mistakes and grow in a fun and open environment. At this camp, players will learn the skills, concepts, and drills needed to prep them for a school or club season.
Youth Academy Summer Intensive is a focused 3-week program that is aimed at improving players skills in a short period of time. Youth Athletes will benefit from skill development, agility and strength training, deeper playing concepts and 6v6 experience. Throughout the progression, players will be pushed, have fun, grow and leave prepared to take on their next in the sport or upcoming tryouts.
