Over summer break, the South Brevard Spirit Volleyball Club will be offering two separate volleyball camps.  These camps would be good for anyone who want to develope their volleyball skills.

The first camp will be between June 17 to June 20 from 12 to 4 p.m. at West Shore and is open to anyone of any age and skill level. It will cost $100 to participate.  The second camp will be held between July 22 and July 25 between 5 and 9 p.m.  Once again, it will be held on campus, is open to people of all skill levels, and will also cost $100.

West Shore varsity volleyball coach Bonnie Priester explained what students should expect if they attend the camp.

“At our camps students can expect to learn all the basic skills in volleyball like passing, setting, spiking, and serving. No matter how much experience players have, everyone can benefit from getting back to the basics. After we go over those skills we play games and tournaments to infuse some fun competition into each day,” Priester said.

Varsity player and volleyball camp attendee Hannah Krasny said the camps would be a worthwhile experience for anyone interested in trying out for the teams next year.

“For the people who are interested in trying out next year it is a good idea to get familiar with the people, coaches, and the atmosphere that West Shore volleyball has to offer, and it is also a fun experience for people for all ages.  Both boys and girls can come to some of the camps which is a lot of fun and makes the competition even higher,” Krasny said.

Coach Priester looks forward to helping camp attendees improve their skills.

“Students should attend our camp if they want to sharpens their volleyball skills or if they want to try volleyball for the first time and get a good foundation for the basics of the game. Our camp is for girls and boys of all skill levels,” Priester said.

For Krasny, the camps offer fun and rigorous training for the up coming season.

“They are summer camps, so there will be a lot of games and competitions.  I’ve been going to the camps for a few years and they never disappoint.  They also make me crazy sore afterwards, but it’s fun and worth it,” Krasny said.
