The Nebraska Volleyball coaching staff and the current Husker players make up the majority of the camp staff. Former players, as well as other college, club, and high school coaches are also part of the camp staff. We believe the best training takes place when there is a low camper to staff ratio. Each court will have between 12-16 players with two coaches.

He has led the Huskers to 3 National Championships, 7 Final Fours, 11 conference championships and 15 top-10 final rankings since 2000.
