Volleyball announced 2014 summer camps
The South Dakota State volleyball coaching staff announced its 2014 summer camps schedule. Again this season, the Jackrabbits offer five camps running from July 8 through July 19.
The Skills Camp for grades 7-12 runs from July 8-10 in Frost Arena. Skills camp will provide instruction to enhance the fundamentals of basic volleyball skill. Campers will work on each volleyball skill, while some sessions will also focus on improving skills based on position. The camp concludes with a tournament competition.
Team Camp takes over Frost Arena July 11-12 with teams competing in two divisions. The camp focuses on competition and the schedule is based on the number of team participating, but includes pool play, followed by bracket play.
Elite Camp runs July 13-15 for campers entering grades 10-12. This camp is designed to expose campers to the collegiate practice and competition environment. Campers receive instruction on all types of volleyball contacts and an understanding of how each touch fits into an overall offensive and defensive system. The Elite Camp will prepare campers for a faster, more intense level of volleyball.
The final two South Dakota State volleyball camps run July 17-19. The Youth Camp is designed to introduce campers entering grades 2-5 to the basic fundamentals of volleyball, including serving, passing, attacking, setting and defense. The Middle School Camp prepares campers entering grades 6-8 for the next level of competition, with an emphasis on the fundamentals of individual volleyball skills, including serving, passing, attacking, setting and defense.
Multiple options are available for camp participants, including resident, commuter, team and day camper.
