North Idaho College volleyball staff and players are offering volleyball camps this summer for grades 5 through 12 at NIC’s Christianson Gym.
The NIC Advanced Skills Camp for participants entering grades 10 through 12 will be held July 30, July 31 and Aug. 1. The Advanced Skills Camp focuses on individual skills combined with team concepts. Players will be grouped by age and ability to ensure a competitive level of play and a positive learning experience. Instruction will include the fundamentals of individual skills, skill building, position-specific sessions, integration of skills, game-style competitions and tournament play. This year, there is also a separate Advanced Skills Camp for ninth-graders only. The cost of either three-day camp is $175 and lunch is included.
A Youth Skills Camp will be offered July 28 and 29 for participants entering grades 5 through 8. The camps are designed for beginners as well as players who want to improve and refine their skills. Emphasis will be placed on all-around skill development and fundamentals. Basic game concepts will be taught and incorporated into afternoon competition sessions. The Youth Skills Camp costs $80 with lunch is included.
Camp instruction will be led by NIC head volleyball coach Kandice Kelly, who was named 2011 Scenic West Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, and Rocky Mountain College coach Laurie Kelly as well as NIC assistant coaches and players. All campers receive a camp T-shirt, a volleyball and free admission to NIC home volleyball matches while wearing the T-shirt.
