The first female volleyball camp will take place from June 22 to 25 for girls ages 9-11 and 12-14. The $90 per person fee will provide each athlete with individual instruction to improve her game. Two girls volleyball high school team camps will be held, June 29-July 2. The camp costs $110 per player and focuses on individual and team techniques to produce performance improvement and success.
Both volleyball camps will be coached by Franciscan NCAA Coach Kelly Herrmann. Other members of the Lady Baron volleyball team and coaches and players from other local colleges will join her.
