FRESNO, Calif. - Less than a week away from the start of the exciting and informative Bulldog Volleyball Summer Camps, area youth players can take advantage of several discounts before action starts next Monday at North Gym on campus.

Campers in groups of five from the same high school or club can receive a $50 discount if they enroll together (and should clearly specify their teammates on the application).

Bulldog Foundation members and Fresno State employees will also receive $20 off their total.

Fresno State volleyball coaches and players look forward to a busy week hosting area youth at North Gym next week.

Action kicks off with a Fundamental Skills Camp for boys and girls 8-18 years old on Monday-Thursday, July 21-24, and the four 9 a.m.-noon sessions cost $275.

Immediately after, 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."

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.

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.
