Selma volleyball camp to teach youth basic skills
Selma High School is offering area youth a chance to learn a new game this summer.
The school is holding a volleyball camp for girls ages 10-18 June 10-11 for the price of $65. Melissa White, the Saints’ volleyball coach, said the camp is a way for many girls to get familiar with volleyball for the first time and a chance for others that are already playing the game to fine tune their skill set.
“We are basically trying to get the girls in the area aware of volleyball and start them off young,” White said. “Then, once they get to middle school and high school, they will get the foundation and have an idea of the game.”
Players will be taught how to serve, pass, set and other fundamental skills needed to understand volleyball, White said.
While the two-day camp will be based on volleyball, White said the camp will also give youth a chance to get to know other students.
“It is also a social tool because we have a lot of kids that may play high school volleyball but may not be able to build a relationship per se with the other kids in the school, so we are using it as a social mechanism as well,” White said.
The entire Selma High School volleyball team is expected to take part in the camp, White said.
April Harper from Wallace Community College and Timeka Ross from Concordia College are among the coaches who have signed up to lend a helping hand.
On-site registration for the camp will be $75 and can only be paid in cash.
Coaches interested in helping out at the camp and anyone with questions should contact White at 657-4381 for more information.
