The virtual way to get recruited in 2020

With limited opportunities to be seen by college coaches in person this year (and maybe next year as well), we're providing volleyball players with a way to get extensive footage of the skills and movements that colleges want to see, and we're sending that footage to college coaches across the country.

Designed by college coaches, our talent ID camps feature skill work, position work and game situations that will show off every aspect of a player. Each camp accepts a limited number of players at each position to maximize touches and exposure.

In summary: play volleyball for three hours and have that footage seen by college coaches across the country—it's a no-brainer!

What's included in a camp ticket?

We've done all of the heavy lifting so all you have to do is show up and play. Our virtual talent ID camps are the easiest way to get exposure to college coaches during the COVID-enforced dead period and beyond. Here's what a ticket gets you:

1

A camp designed and run by college coaches

Designed by a team of former Division 1 college coaches, (Jim Stone, Terry Liskevych and John Dunning), the AOC Talent ID Camps were developed to showcase the player skills and movements that matter most to college coaches.

With two coaches leading each court, athletes will get the direction they need to let their skills shine.

2

A three-hour gym session

Each camp will take place over a 3-hour period with the total number of athletes limited by court and position to allow for maximum touches. Facilities will be following local COVID guidelines and limiting the numbers of players per court to keep players and staff safe.

The camp program includes a warm-up, physical measurements (height, reach, wingspan), skill and position work, position-focused 6 vs 6 and unscripted "live" scrimmaging.

3

A recording of the camp footage

Every minute of the camp will be filmed in HD with two cameras on each court for optimal viewing. Players wear color-coded t-shirts with unique numbers for easy identification on video. All footage will be available online that same week for both players and coaches to view.

Along with playing footage, we also provide coaches with a roster of participating athletes that includes each player's profile and contact details.

4

Instant exposure to college coaches

AOC has an extensive database of college coaches across the country, including DI, DII, DIII and NAIA schools as well as junior colleges.

The footage of each camp will be provided for free to all college coaches with no restrictions and can be watched on-demand (whenever the coach wants). Coaches can register in advance to get free access to all camp footage as they take place, and after the camps AOC will also send the camp footage to our extensive database of coaches.

5

Access to a dynamic recruiting platform

To capture the video of each camp, AOC has partnered with MVPCast, a dynamic recruiting platform for tagging touches and creating highlight videos. The cloud-based HD video that MVPCast captures at each camp will be available for college coaches to watch on-demand.

Each attending athlete will also get a one-month free subscription to MVPCast, where they can use the quick and easy video creator to make a highlight video out of their camp footage and add in video from matches.

6

Recruiting Q&A and info session from JVRA

The Sunday after each camp, the Junior Volleyball Recruiting Association (JVRA) will host a free virtual recruiting information session for players who attended the camp. The session will include the latest information on the recruiting process at all levels, with the opportunity for players and their parents to ask questions related to their own situation.

The JVRA is a global non-profit dedicated to improving the recruiting process for student-athletes by providing educational resources designed to inform and empower club, high school and college coaches.

FAQs

Who can attend?

Camps are open to volleyball players in the graduating classes of 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024. Camps are open to all players from any club, not just those playing for the host club.

Due to COVID precautions, only athletes will be allowed into the gym (no family or friends allowed).

How many players will be on each court?

The number of players on each court varies per camp and depends on local COVID guidelines. Most camps will have somewhere between 12-17 players per court to maximize touches.

Each camp will have a limited number of spots available for each position to ensure the correct ratio of positions on each court.

How will coaches be able to identify me?

Each player will be given a camp t-shirt that is color-coded by graduation year with a unique number on the back. This number will allow college coaches to locate you on the court and match you up with the roster of player profiles we provide.

What does a camp schedule look like?

A sample camp schedule might look like this:
Physical measurements - height, reach, wingspan (20 min)
Warm-up (20 min)
Skill and position work (45 min)
Position-specific 6v6 (45 min)
"Live" 6v6 with refs (45 min)

How will I access the camp video?

It's easy! After your camp ends, later that week the video will be available to view online through our technology partner MVPCast. You'll even get a free one-month subscription to MVPCast so you can use their simple highlight video builder in order to pull your touches out of the camp footage and put together a highlight video you can send to coaches.

What will college coaches be able to see?

College coaches are able to register to view every session from every camp we film, all for free online. Along with the HD camp footage, we'll also provide coaches with the roster of participating athletes in each session that includes every player's profile and contact details.

Coaches will be able to access all camp video on-demand for up to 60 days after the event.

What types of coaches will be watching?

AOC has an extensive database of over 1,200 college coaches across the country, including DI, DII, DIII and NAIA schools as well as junior colleges.

After each camp, AOC will let college coaches know that camp footage is available to view on-demand.

What are college coaches looking for?

Obviously, volleyball skills are important. But coaches are also watching for other things like attitude, coachability, work ethic, energy level and interactions with other players.

When you're at camp, make sure you're putting your best foot forward throughout the entire eventlisten to directions; shag balls; give high fives; have good energy. Coaches will notice!

Who is AOC?

Founded by three legendary volleyball coaches who are passionate about giving back and improving the game, AOC's unwavering commitment is to offer tools that will help coaches and players continually improve and evolve.
