The Comox Valley Volleyball Camp will focus on skill development and fun.

Volleyball camp offers youth, elite sessions

An upcoming camp will provide athletes an excellent opportunity to play, improve and excel at volleyball.

The Comox Valley Volleyball Camp will be held at Vanier Secondary on Dec. 17 and 23.

“It is really exciting to offer this two-day camp in December,” 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 wide range of ages and skill levels. 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 CIS (university) playing experience and five years of coaching Team BC, including Canada Games. He has also been an assistant coach at Camosun College, and has many years of club and high school coaching, and individual athlete training/development.

There will be a strong collection of coaches from the Comox Valley. Current and former university athletes will be providing their expertise and enthusiasm at the camp.

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

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

The camp is a great opportunity to further your volleyball development, prepare for club, meet some new people, and have a great time. Be sure to register soon.
