Area youth invited to Grizzly summer volleyball camps

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Area youngsters who will be in third through 12th grades during the 2012-2013 academic year can develop their volleyball skills during one of two Grizzly Summer Volleyball Camps being offered at the West Plains Civic Center arena.

The camps will be directed by Paula Wiedemann, head coach of the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly Volleyball team.

The first camp, Elementary Day Camp, is set for 9 a.m. through 4 p.m. July 5 and 6 for youths in third through sixth grade. In this camp, volleyball fundamentals will be stressed in a fun and exciting atmosphere. Lightweight Volley-Lite balls will be used for third and fourth graders, and all campers will receive a T-shirt.

Seventh through 12th graders are invited to a hitter/setter/defensive camp from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 7. In this camp, participants of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced, will improve their basic fundamental skills and develop technique through progression drills and individual/group work.

Cost of the camps is $75 per person, including lunch, or $70 per person, without lunch. Registrations will be taken until the first day of each camp session; however, those planning to attend should call in advance at 417-255-7950 so organizers can plan accordingly. Camp information and registration forms can be found on our website at http://wp.missouristate.edu/grizzly/vb/c....
