ATHENS, Ga. - The University of Georgia volleyball program has announced the dates for the 2014 volleyball camps. There will be six sessions, with each focusing on technical and tactical training in a challenging and fun atmosphere. Campers will get to work with a highly trained and skilled staff and will practice in the Ramsey Student Center, home of the Georgia volleyball team. Registration information can be found at www.lizzystemkevolleyballcamps.com. Participants are encouraged to register early, as space is limited.
"It is that time of year again and we are gearing up for another full line up of great training sessions for our community as we continue to develop youth volleyball in the area," Head Coach Lizzy Stemke said. "We offer beautiful facilities, great coaches and expertise in the technical and tactical side of the game, and most importantly a fun learning environment for all involved. We encourage anyone who is interested to sign up as early as possible as our camps have seen great growth over the last three years and space is limited."
The Junior Bulldog Camp will be held in the evenings of June 10-12 for campers from first to eighth graders. On June 14, there will be a one-day serving/passing camp, followed by a one-day attacker camp on June 16. Each of these camps will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and is open to campers between the ages of 13-18.
Georgia will offer a Setter Academy, which will include two full days of setting technique and drills, which is scheduled July 7-8. A three-day, All Skills Camp will be held July 9-11. Each of these camps is open to players between the ages of 13-18.
