This camp emphasizes the basics of throwing, catching, fielding, hitting, base running, and pitching. Positioning and strategies are taught through game-like drills and scrimmages. Softball camp will be offered only during the first session of the Athletic Camps.

Volleyball - July 6-10 (beginner to intermediate) • July 13-17 (intermediate to advanced)

As a volleyball camper, you will take to the court each day to learn and practice fundamental skills.
