The nationally-ranked Cowley College volleyball team is host to several camps and clinics in late spring and summer. These include a Setter/Hitter camp on June 13, June 20 and July 18. This is the same camp on three dates to accommodate those who missed the original April 25 camp. Also slated is a High School camp July 29-30, an Elite High School camp July 31, and satellite camps for the months of June and July. The camps are directed by the Cowley coaching staff.
• Setter/Hitter Clinic — June 13, June 20 or July 18 (pick a date)
This camp is for athletes who are learning the advanced skills of setting and hitting.
Athletes will be taught the correct basic skills for a setter/hitter to succeed. The skills will be broken down into correct footwork, arm swing, hand positions and set placement.
The athlete will receive five hours of instruction. This camp is recommended for grades 9-12. The camp is from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m., and the cost is $85.
• High School Camp — July 29-30
This camp is designed for grades 9-12 and will cover all aspects of the game.
The two-day camp will cover the understanding of rotations, general volleyball rules, passing, setting, serving and hitting mechanics.
Each day is five hours, from 10 a.m. to noon, and from 1 to 4 p.m., and the cost is $90 for two days or $45 per day.
• High School Elite Camp — July 31
This camp offers comprehensive instruction for athletes who wish to do more advanced training with a desire to compete at the collegiate level.
Areas instructed are skills development, offensive and defensive team systems, specialized position instruction and, if numbers allow, intrasquad play.
Campers are to have a ride for lunch or bring their own sack lunch.
Six hours of instruction, from 9 a.m. to noon, and from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m., and the cost is $100.
• Satellite Camps — June, or July
For those whose summer schedule does not allow for travel, Cowley has on-campus camps and clinics.
Staff will go to a school and provide a one-, two-, or three-day camp. The school supplies the net(s), the balls and a minimum of 10 campers.
Camp instruction is based on what the coach needs for his or her program: individual skills, position-specific skills, team concepts, etc.
Dates will fill up fast.
All campers will need to bring workout gear and athletic shoes. All on-campus clinic sessions are in W.S. Scott Auditorium. All sessions are open to family and friends to watch. All camps and clinics, and the tournament must be paid in full prior to the start.
