Limited Spots Still Available for 2009 Volleyball Camps
June 18, 2009
Corvallis, Ore. - Limited spots remain for the 2009 Oregon State volleyball camps to be held between July 17-23.
Campers of all skill levels between the ages of 12-18 are invited to attend an Oregon State Volleyball Camp. The camps feature two intense three-hour instructional sessions per camp day with interspersed matches. In between sessions, campers eat and enjoy free time. Evening sessions for the all-skills camps will feature extra court time, pool time and/or other activity options. Overnight campers stay in on-campus dorms with adult supervision.
Campers' volleyball skills are evaluated in the first camp session, and they are divided into like skill groups to best facilitate learning. Court coaches are constantly assessing and moving campers to the most appropriate group throughout camp.
Oregon State volleyball coaching staff members are present at all sessions. Each court is lead by a highly qualified coach and assisted by a current Oregon State volleyball team member.
The hallmark camp of Oregon State volleyball, the Overnight All-Skills Camp features the six-skill instruction of the commuter camp, extended over four days. Campers increase not only their skills and knowledge of the game but also experience staying on the beautiful Oregon State campus. One camp's session will feature a special 'Question & Answer' session on college volleyball. Check in is at 5:30 p.m. on July 18. Check-Out will be at 12:00 p.m. on July 21. The cost for the four-day camp is $390.
The Commuter All-Skills Camp provides instruction on all aspects of the game. Sessions will focus on the six volleyball skills: serving, passing, hitting, setting, blocking and defense. Campers will increase their overall knowledge of the game and develop and refine their volleyball skills during their stay. Check in is 7:30 a.m. and check out is 8:00 p.m. on July 22. Check in is 7:30 a.m. and check out is 4:45 p.m. on July 23. The two-day camp costs $160.
A popular addition in 2008, this year's Specialty Skills Camp will be broken up into two day-long camps. Campers sign up for only one specific skill set per day-long camp: setting, hitting, or defense. Campers are welcome to sign up for only one or both days. Specialty Skills Camp is a commuter-only camp. Check in is 7:30 a.m. and check out is 6:30 p.m. on both July 17 & 18 and the cost for each day is $75.
