Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About SVHS Winter Camps

Yes, our programs are co-ed unless specifically noted.  

The decisions about constructing camp offerings are determined by a variety of factors.  First and foremost, our ability to secure the highest quality instruction in a specific area because we intend for our programs to be the highest quality offering in our area.  Second, we want to offer a mix of camps for children of many age groups that are a good compliment to one another.  Also, we certainly do not simply want the same programs every summer or winter session.  Finally, we do listen to input from parents and student-athletes to gauge the interest level in our community.  

The SVHS Camp of Champions tailors its programs to introductory, intermediate and more advanced players. Groups will be divided by age and then by ability. Fun and enjoyment are priorities in our programs.  Unless otherwise noted, the emphasis is on learning skills and techniques in a low pressure, appropriately competitive environment.

For the first two-years of our camps, we reached full capacity across every offering. If for any reason, a camp is cancelled; you will receive a full and immediate refund.
