The Colby Community College volleyball program will hold multiple camps in June for students entering first through 12th grades.

Instruction will be under tenth-year head coach Carey Jones and assistant coach Shelby Gardner.  

"We are really excited for camps this summer," said Gardner. "It is a good opportunity to have kids of all ages and skill levels learn the game and for us as coaches and players who come back to help share our love of the game with the youth of our community and surrounding areas."

On June 3 and 4, the overnight middle school camp is for participants entering fifth through eighth grades. Passing, setting, hitting and serving will be learned.

A setter clinic will be offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 7 for students in seventh through 12th grades. Campers will learn specific setting drills in addition to in-depth setter footwork, technique and hand and set placement.

The elementary skills camp, for students entering first through fifth grades, is from 9 to noon on June 5-6. Attention will be given to passing, setting, hitting and serving.

The high school skills camp is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 26-27. The focus will be on passing, setting, hitting, blocking, defense, serving and serve-receive.

VolleyTots is a camp for boys and girls ages 3-7. The camp is scheduled from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on June 5, 12, 19 and 26. The purpose is to develop motor movements and hand-eye coordination through a variety of fun activities.

Fees for the camps range from $45 to $115 and include a Trojan volleyball T-shirt. The registration form is available online. For more information, contact Coach Gardner at (785) 443-1800 or Coach Jones at (785) 269-7728.
