Annual December break volleyball camp in Comox Valley

An annual volleyball camp will be held over the Christmas break, Dec. 21 and 22 at Highland Secondary.

The Comox Valley Volleyball Camp provides athletes with an opportunity to play, improve and excel at the sport. The winter and summer camps are the longest running of their kind in the North Island.

“It is really exciting to offer this two-day camp in December,” camp co-ordinator Brian Stevens said. “My passion is coaching young athletes, seeing them improve their skills, and have fun while doing it.”

There are two sessions available to accommodate a range of ages and skills. The youth session, for boys and girls Grades 5-8, will run from 9 a.m. to noon. The elite session, for boys and girls Grades 9-12, will run from 1-4 p.m.

Both sessions will focus on technical skill development, game play knowledge, tons of touches with the ball, and of course fun. The elite session will also have a strong focus on position-specific play and game strategy components.

Stevens has five years of university playing experience, five years of coaching Team BC (including Canada Games), assistant coached at Camosun College, many years of club and high school coaching, and many years of individual athlete training/development.

There will be a strong collection of coaches facilitating the camp who are from the Comox Valley. Both current and former university athletes will be providing expertise and enthusiasm at the camp.

“Each coach at the camp are excellent athletes and love working with young athletes. They all really enjoy coaching and interacting with the campers.”

The camp is $60 or $30 for one session. Register by contacting Stevens at bdstevens@hotmail.com or (250) 339-0434. A registration form will be e-mailed with pertinent information.

Those who register and attend are asked to bring a non-perishable item for the food bank. It’s a Comox Valley Volleyball December Camp tradition to donate food during the holiday season.
