JONESBORO – Head Coach Justin Ingram and the Arkansas State volleyball team are set to host their annual Red Wolves Volleyball Camps at the ASU HPESS building this summer. The summer schedule includes individual skills camps, a team camp and new for 2011, satellite camps.
Two individual skills camps will be held this summer for students entering grades K-6 and grades 7-12. The first camp is scheduled for June 10-11, with the second camp dates set for July 22-23. Students in grades K-6 will attend the morning sessions of the camps, while junior and senior high students will attend camp in the afternoon and evening.
The individual camps will focus on the fundamental skills of volleyball and will offer campers a chance to experience the teaching styles and drills used in the ASU volleyball program. Skills will be reinforced through game-like drills to help campers learn to apply the skill. Additional instruction on offensive and defensive systems, rotations and more will also be given.
The cost for the K-6 camp is $40, while the 7-12 camp is set at $60, and all campers will receive a Red Wolves Volleyball Camp t-shirt. All camp sessions are open to parents, and the ASU staff encourages parents to attend as their schedules permit. A certified athletic trainer will be on duty at all times at all of the Red Wolves Volleyball Camps.
The Team Camp will be held July 29-30 at the HPESS building. The camp provides a great opportunity for teams to get one-on-one attention from the ASU staff and to better prepare for the upcoming season. Teams attending will also have the opportunity to compete against other teams from around the area. The cost for the team camp is $50 per athlete, and includes a Red Wolves Volleyball Camp t-shirt.
"We are excited to reach out to the community and region for this summer's Red Wolves Volleyball Camps," said Ingram. "It was a goal of ours to influence more athletes this year. As a result, we have opened the camps to more age groups (K-6 and 7-12) and cut the price by more than half. In addition to hosting camps on the Arkansas State University campus, we are offering satellite camps to schools wanting to improve and develop team systems and coaching methods."
The Red Wolves Volleyball Satellite Camps provide an excellent cost-effective solution that brings the camps to you. Members of our coaching staff and current A-State players will come to your gym and train your team using the same techniques and systems that helped the Red Wolves win the Western Division in the Sun Belt the past two seasons. Various packages are being offered that will best fit the needs of the individual schools.
