The College of the Canyons women’s volleyball program invites boys and girls ages 9-14 to join in the 2015 Cougar Volleyball Camp, with two sessions running in July.
Open to beginning and intermediate level players, each camp session will provide attendees an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game and/or increase their current skill levels.
Camp sessions will be led by COC head coach Lisa Hooper, co-camp director Clay Timmons and assistant coaches and intercollegiate players from the two-time defending Western State Conference champion women’s volleyball program.
The basic skills and fundamentals of volleyball will be introduced and covered in full detail, including: serving, passing, setting, attacking/hitting, blocking, and digging.
For more experienced players, the camp will reinforce already learned skills while introducing new concepts related to offensive and defensive strategy, quick attacking and jump serving.
Campers will be divided into groups according to their age and skill level to help maximize their opportunity to grow as young players.
Throughout each session, there will be fundamental instruction, skills review and team competition.
“We’ve been running the Cougar Volleyball Camp since 2001 with a goal to help every camper improve their skillset and deepen their love of the sport,” said Hooper. “It’s a pleasure to be able to work with local players and watch them go on to star on their high school teams.”
The 2015 Cougar Volleyball Camp will run during the following dates and times:
- July 13-16 — 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Monday — Thursday)
- July 20-23 — 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Monday — Thursday)
All camp sessions will take place in the West P.E. gymnasium at the Valencia campus.
A $125-per-player registration fee applies to each session if paid by June 15. If payment is received between June 15 and 30, the per-player registration fee is $150. Beginning July 1, registration fees increase to $175.
For families with multiple camp participants, additional campers will be charged a fee of $100 per player, regardless of deadline.
