Camp Overview & Sessions:
The 2019 Arapahoe Volleyball Preseason Camp is designed for players to learn and perform the fundamental volleyball skills introduced by the Arapahoe HS Coaching Staff. Players will be introduced to the Gold Medal Squared System of instruction developed by coaching legends Carl McGown and Doug Beal. This system is based on the principles of motor learning. "The teaching methods are backed by science, research and data using statistical studies on a regular basis. Sound principles allow volleyball coaches to build effective, tested systems around the abilities of their players. Creativity and principles can absolutely co-exist. This is when coaching volleyball gets fun!" Simple word keys allow players to process information through participation and a foundation of learning.
