Indoor soccer helps players to master the fundamentals and to play more quickly, which will serve them well during the outdoor season. It also has the benefit of being in the A/C during the hot Florida summer!

The girls volleyball program at Geneva continues to grow. Last year, the varsity team had an outstanding season finishing in the state “Final Four” for the fourth year in a row! There are plenty of opportunities for players to be involved in volleyball at Geneva, even as young as second grade.

The morning 2nd–6th grade camp will focus on helping young athletes develop fundamental skills, bond with other players, yet also develop self-confidence in a safe and friendly environment. 

The afternoon 7th–12th grade camp will focus mainly on position development and team strategies. It is designed for both beginning players and those who have played volleyball before at a competitive level. The goal of this camp is to provide players with a greater understanding and ability to execute commonly known volleyball systems. Drills will center on offensive and defensive techniques that may be applied to any volleyball program.

Individuals not attending Geneva are welcome as any player will gain valuable experience. The camp fee includes a T-shirt and awards at the end of the three days. Head volleyball coach Hollie Benjumea will direct these camps alongside guest coaches.
