April 19 – HIRAM, Ohio – The Hiram College men's volleyball team has announced its inaugural slate of camps for the summer of 2017. The Terriers will host camps for both youth, as well as high school players during the month of July.
During the last week of July, Hiram will hold a youth development camp, as well as their "Boys Elite" volleyball camp.
The youth camp, which will take place between July 25 and July 27, will focus on players aged 12-15 (born between July 25, 2002 and July 25, 2005). The commuter only clinic will be a day camp from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Throughout the three-day clinic, players will learn the fundamental skills and techniques needed to compete at both the high school and club levels. Skills include passing, serving, setting, hitting and blocking, as well as how to communicate with other players on the court.
Campers will receive individualized attention from former and current coaches and players who have experience at the high school and collegiate levels. Participants will exit with a firm understanding of the fundamentals and a solid platform for continuing to develop those skills in the future.
Price of the youth camp is $170 and includes lunch over all three days of the camp. Campers also have the option of purchasing a Hiram College men's volleyball long sleeve warm-up shirt for an extra $25.
The "Boys Elite" volleyball camp will be held from July 28-30, and will be held for rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors.
Campers at the Elite volleyball camp will receive a complete overview of the game at a higher level, learning techniques to help advance their game for the upcoming high school and club seasons.
Players will learn advanced strategies and skills to help them raise their level of play in multiple areas of 6-on-6 play, including serving, passing, offense and defense.
Throughout the camp, participants will have the opportunity to learn in both a selective drill and a 6-on-6 environment, receiving feedback from high level coaches at the collegiate and high school levels.
At the conclusion of the camp, players will leave with a firm understanding of both advanced volleyball techniques and a higher understanding of what it takes to compete at higher levels.
Pricing for the elite boys camp will be $250 dollars with an additional $25 dollar option for the Hiram men's volleyball shirt.
Registration and full payments for both camps are due to the Hiram men's volleyball team by July 10, 2017. Checks, made payable to Hiram College Men's Volleyball, along with registration can be mailed to the address listed below:
