Kim Jagd to Direct USA Volleyball High Performance A2 Camp

June 18, 2003

UCLA assistant women's volleyball coach Kim Jagd has been selected to direct the USA volleyball's 2003 girls High Performance A2 camp in Colorado Springs this summer. The training sessions will be held at the Air Force Academy from July 5-10. Jagd will be serving her first stint as a head coach, having being involved in a similar program the last two summers as an assistant. She will lead a staff of 6 assistants, including former Olympian, Rita Crockett, and coach 30 players, ages 12-14. This is USA Volleyball's introductory level of instruction to young players aspiring to achieve Olympic status.

'Kim has dedicated time from her summers to be involved with the USA programs, and is deserving of this opportunity to lead the camp,' said head UCLA volleyball coach, Andy Banachowski. ' She has developed a keen understanding of the USA training concepts and will be an excellent teacher and role model for these young volleyball players.'

'I am excited about this assignment and the opportunity to continue my involvement with USA volleyball,' said Jagd. 'I enjoy working with this age group and helping them learn new techniques.'

Furthermore, Coach Jagd will assist with the High Performance National Camp a week later at St. George, Utah. After a week of training, Jagd will be assigned a team to coach in USA's VolleyClassic to be held in St. George, from July 22-27. Fourteen youth regional teams, plus two teams from the HP National Camp, will comprise the field.

'It's going to be a busy summer of volleyball', said Jagd, 'but I can hardly wait.'
