The Comox Valley Volleyball Camp attracts a big crowd every summer.

Comox Valley Volleyball Camp back for 13th year

Annual summer camp runs July 11-14 at G.P. Vanier gym

The Comox Valley Volleyball Camp is returning again this summer to provide athletes with an excellent opportunity to play, improve and excel at this awesome sport.

The camp will be held at the G.P. Vanier gymnasium from July 11-14.

“It is really exciting to offer this well established camp for the 13th year in a row. It is one of the longest running volleyball camps on the Island,” stated camp co-ordinator Brian Stevens.

There are two sessions of the camp available to accommodate a wide range of ages and skill levels.  The Youth Session, for boys and girls ages 11-14 (turning 11), will run from 1-4:30 p.m.  The Elite Session, for boys and girls ages 15-17, will run from 5-8:30 p.m.  If your son/daughter is 10 and turning 11, please don’t hesitate to register.

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, CORE and strength training, and game strategy components.

In addition to the indoor game, athletes will also have the opportunity to learn and play outdoor volleyball on the grass.  Playing both indoor and outdoor really assists the skills and knowledge of the game.

Stevens has five years of CIS (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.  Both current and former university athletes, all of whom attended this camp at some point in their volleyball careers, will be providing their expertise and enthusiasm.

The camp is $150 which includes a T-shirt.  There are 40 spots available in each session and both sessions are already filling up so register soon.  You can register your son/daughter by contacting Stevens at bdstevens@hotmail.com or by calling 250-339-0434.  A registration form will be e-mailed to you which has all of the pertinent information for the camp.

“This camp is a great opportunity to further your volleyball development, meet some new people, and have a great time,” said Stevens. “Be sure to register soon!”
