"Level Up 2" Intermediate Camps

Thursday 4pm-8pm

Date: August 31st 

Location: 1 Athletes Way Vancouver, BC (Creekside Community Center)


Max 16 players each camp

This camp is designed for players who have been playing for a while and who have a solid foundation of the game. More challenging material and drills will be covered than in Level Up 1 Camps including more advanced third shot drills (drops, lobs, drives) and re-sets from mid court, speeding up the ball at the NVL (speed-ups), overhead smashes, and partner communication. (When to advance together or remain back. ) In addition, Cheryl and her co-coach will spend time “playing in” with you and dissecting the points as they happen. Strategy will be top of the list.

Cost $140.00 plus GST = $147.00 (each camp)

“Her passion for the game is infectious, and I found myself looking forward to the next camp. Cheryl is an excellent communicator, and she was patient with us as we practiced our skills doing a series of custom-tailored 'mini games' . Cheryl quickly identified my strengths and weaknesses and gave me specific feedback to help me improve."

Ury Segal, UBC "Level Up" Camp Participant

What her assistant coaches say

I helped Cheryl run her "Learn to Play" and "Level Up 1 Intermediate" Camps. She has a great progression strategy in her teaching approach. Even with learning how to keep score it was a step be step transition. After about four demos followed by play everyone was to the point of playing short games. It was impressive to see in just 3 hours how people went from knowing nothing to actually playing games! With her Intermediate group Cheryl could recognize the difficulties people were having with certain aspects of their game and tailor drills to directly target the problems. There were drills I had not seen before which I will be incorporating in my own training sessions. I personally like the clear,  concise manner in which she articulates her demos. She knows the right amount of words to say to get the information across. I would highly recommend her courses for not only people who are new to the game but also for those that are trying to get to the next level.
