What is the ratio of staff coaches to campers?
During individual camps, how are teams organized?
Groups are formed based on the skill level of the athletes. Each team of 10-12 players is made after evaluating all campers. Group members tend to be of similar age and grade.
Can parents observe the training sessions?
Yes! Parents are welcome to come watch any training session. Parents are especially invited to come watch the last camp session and closing ceremonies. Please check with your daughter to see what facility she will be in.
Can parents come visit their daughter in the dorm?
Yes, but with some restrictions. Parents are allowed to come visit their daughter in the lobby of the dorm during the breaks between sessions. Parents are not allowed on the dorm floors, in camper's rooms, or in the cafeteria. Check-In and Check-Out are the only times that the parents will be allowed to go into the rooms. We have found that parents coming to visit their daughters at the dorm during camp is one of the leading causes of homesickness. Camp is a time for your daughter to experience independence and have a great camp experience. We want your daughter to have a positive camp experience and our staff will be there to help if they need to.
What kind of supervision do the campers receive at the dorm?
There will be 24 HOUR SUPERVISION by camp staff. Staff members will be staying in the dorm should any camper need assistance. A camp administrator will also be available should a camper need emergency assistance.
Will my child's roommate request be honored?
We will make every effort to honor all roommate requests, but we cannot guarantee that all will be met. In the instance that a camper has requested more than one roommate or multiple campers all request the same roommate, we will make the selection. Requests for blocks of rooms near each other can be requested. Again, we cannot guarantee requests for blocks but will do our best to honor each request.
Will laundry facilities be available during camp?
No, please make sure to pack accordingly for the entire camp.
Are the meals accommodating to campers that may have food allergies, vegetarians, etc...?
Yes, our dining facilities serve a variety of foods to satisfy and accommodate all our campers' needs and can be notified to work with campers with food allergies. Special dietary requests must be made in advance and noted in the medical portion of the registration process.
What should I do with the Medical/Insurance Form?
The medical/insurance form should be completed online at CamperReg.com, at the time of registration, so it is submitted directly to camp administrators. Each camper MUST have completed this portion of the registration process to participate in any of our camps.
What type of medical care will be available at camp?
CU athletic trainers will be present throughout the duration of every camp. To ensure the safety of our campers, please accurately state any and all ailments and/or conditions when completing the online registration.
Will the camper have access to ice/water at camp?
Gatorade and water stations will be located in all gyms and a full service training room is available in our main site, Coors Events Center.
What type of clothing do campers need to bring to camp?
Appropriate Volleyball/workout clothes, i.e. t-shirts, shorts, kneepads, socks, gym shoes
For Overnight Campers: Campers must bring your own linens, pillows, and sheets. Also, plan on bringing a fan as we do not have our dorm assignment yet, and some dorms are not air-conditioned.
Can I register for camp another way besides on-line?
No. Our NCAA compliance office and business office have mandated that all camp registration go through CamperReg, our online camper management system. This on-line registration system cuts out the paper chase, satisfies the auditors, and ensures that we are in compliance with all NCAA rules.
What do I need to hold a spot?
You can hold your spot in camp by registering online along with a non-refundable deposit of $100 per registered session.
What happens after I register?
After registering online you will receive immediate confirmation of enrollment via email. You will also receive additional information and a reminder about check in procedures in the weeks leading up to the camp your child is enrolled in.
What if we fly in or arrive a day early and need transportation or lodging?
Airport shuttle: For campers flying in/out of Denver, we will provide transportation to and from The University of Colorado or a fee of $25 one-way and $40 round-trip. Please get in touch with us by phone or email to set this up.
Additional lodging: We also offer an additional night stay of $50 per night for campers attending multiple, consecutive sessions. Please get in touch with us by phone or email to set this up.
When should I register?
We typically open our registration on January 1st of the camp year. Our camps have sold out the past few years and are filling up faster and faster each year. Registrations are processed on a first come, first serve basis.
Do you keep a waitlist once the camps are full?
Yes, we do keep a waitlist. Waitlists are kept in case of cancellations.
Who can I contact at CU for info or help with camps?
Natalie Dedin, Camp Director
Should campers bring their own "Spending Money"?
Yes, If they wish to buy CU Gear or go to the Camp Store where they can purchase Pizza, Snacks, and Refreshments.
Will my child be able to access a CU store?
A Mobile Bookstore will be open on the last day of camp where campers can shop for official Colorado Buffs apparel.
Where do I provide medical information for my daughter/son?
Medical information is a required part of online registration. Please make sure you complete this section of the registration process in its entirety. All campers must have completed medical information on file in order to participate in any camp activities.
What happens if my daughter does not have her medical forms turned in?
The CU Volleyball Camp must have all medical forms on file before your daughter can participate in camp, no exceptions. This is a University of Colorado mandate, not just a camp policy, and your cooperation is appreciated.
What if my child has a medical condition that he/she needs attention for?
All medical conditions need to be reported in detail to the certified trainer upon check-in. All prescription medications will need to be checked in upon arrival to camp (please make sure your camper's name is clearly visible on the packaging/bottle). All necessary medication will be distributed by the athletic training staff per the prescribed dosage instructions provided. Campers are not to have medication in their possession at any time during camp and will be secured and managed by the camp staff.
What else should I send with my daughter?
Campers sometimes bring appropriate games, cards, mp3 players, snacks and drinks to make their stay more comfortable. Your camper should also bring an alarm clock. Please remember that the CU Volleyball Camp is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
Will the rooms have phones?
No, the rooms will not have phones and campers are not allowed to plug phones into the Dorm rooms. Campers are allowed to bring cell phones; however, they are only permitted to be used in the camper's rooms and are not allowed in the gym, the dorm lobby or along the walk to/from the dorms and the gym.
Will my child be supervised at the dorm?
Yes! Every camper is assigned to a dorm counselor. CU Volleyball Camp Staff (camp directors, coaches, counselors, and dorm moms) are housed in the premier dormitories on campus (dorms are assigned prior to camp and campers receive notification the week before camp starts) Campers are required to be in there room by 10:30pm. Our dorm staff will do bed checks every night at 10:15pm. We are very serious about the safety of your daughter. CU Housing Services and Public Safety also has its own security staff that monitors the premises 24 hours/day.
What if I lose my Housing/Dining card?
Each camper is given a swipe card that serves as their room key and meal card registration. There is a $25 fee for a lost card. If a camper looses either of these items, please notify the camp director or a dorm mom immediately. The fee to replace a lost key or meal band can be paid to the camp director or a dorm mom. If the camper does not have the money to pay the fee, it will be billed to the parents.
Please see our website for maps to all Volleyball camp related areas. Please obey all traffic and parking signs while on campus. Illegal parking will almost certainly result in a citation, fine, and possibly towing.
Sorry, but the CU Volleyball Camp cannot provide assistance with appeals for tickets issued by the University of Colorado or the City of Boulder and will not pay for any citations received while at camp.
Who are the CU BUFFS Volleyball Camp coaches?
The University of Colorado head coach Liz Kritza and assistant coaches Tom Hogan and Jesse Sultzer set the curriculum for training. We also take great pride in securing the best collection of coaches from colleges, clubs, and high schools around the country. We offer the unique opportunity to learn form and work directly with Olympic medalists and world class volleyball players as well.
