FRESNO, Calif. - Area youth volleyball players are invited to raise their game with Bulldog players and coaches this summer at a pair of Fresno State Volleyball Camps at the end of July.
A Fundamental Skills Camp for boys and girls 8-18 years old will be held Monday-Wednesday, July 21-24, and the four 9 a.m.-noon sessions cost $275.
The following week, an Advanced Setter/Hitter Camp for girls 14-18 years old runs from Friday-Sunday, July 25-27, and offers six morning, afternoon and/or evening sessions. The resident cost is $405 and includes every session, while the commuter cost of $320 includes only morning and afternoon sessions.
"Our camps not only build confidence, fitness, skills and volleyball IQ in our Valley kids, but it gives them an opportunity to get an inside peek at our program," Fresno State volleyball head coach Lauren Netherby-Sewell said. "Camps provide the community and program huge benefits, and our mission is to make sure our young athletes leave with better skills, a deeper understanding of the game, and an idea of the work it takes to become the best at whatever they pursue."
The All-Skills Volleyball Camp will consist of challenging training sessions focusing on serving, passing, defense, attacking, blocking and competitive team drills. The camp will conclude with an exciting camp tournament to showcase the skills the campers learned throughout the week.
The Advanced Setter/Hitter Camp is designed for players who want to improve their specific skills including training on the basic fundamentals of hitting/setting and also more advanced concepts.
"Whichever camp they attend, they will be trained by high-level athletes, coached by my NCAA Division I staff and have a chance to compete against some of our current and incoming 2014 Bulldogs," Netherby-Sewell said. "I have offered scholarships to players based on their play at camps, and our camps are worth it on many levels. My staff, team and I can't wait to meet another promising group of boys and girls."
Both camps will be held at North Gym on the Fresno State campus.
Registration is based on a first come-first serve basis, so make sure to sign up today because the camp is limited to the first 100 participants.
Fresno State employees will receive a discount of $20 off of each camper fee for each camp attended (and please provide a photocopy of your Fresno State ID with payment).

Looking ahead to her seventh season at the helm, Netherby-Sewell and the `Dogs come off their first pair of back-to-back winning seasons since 2003 and `04, and tied for fourth place in the MW Conference - two places better than their 2013 MW Preseason Coaches Poll position.
