Feb. 28, 2013

CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati volleyball team announced the dates of its two team camps and six individual camps on Thursday. All camps will take place in either June or July on the campus of the University of Cincinnati.

Registration for all camps is now open at http://www.gobearcats.com/sports/w-volley/w-volleycamps.html.

“We are all so excited here at UC to have our camp dates set” said head coach Molly Alvey. “Camp is such a fantastic opportunity for us to show off all of the great facilities we have on campus and the energy and expertise of our staff. We get to give our campers an inside look at life as a UC volleyball player and college student. We are excited to be hosting these camps once again and are looking forward to a great summer.”

The Team Camp, which will be held July 11-13, is designed to prepare each team for the upcoming season by providing ample time for practice and competition.

The Team Shootout will take place on July 27 and is the ultimate tune up for the upcoming high school season. Teams will compete in a variety of skill training sessions, competitive wash drills and the team shootout tournament.

UC will also host individual camps, including the Elite Skills Camp (July 8-10) and the One-Day Elite Skills Camp (July 14), for high school aged participants with an intermediate to high volleyball skill set. The camps are formatted to push and instruct the individual player with advanced techniques and training to help polish their skill set. The camps are encouraged for athletes with a strong volleyball background who are looking to get a pre-college volleyball experience.

The team will also host two sessions of the Bearcat Youth Skills Camp (June 12-14 and July 15-17) and one session of the Lil’ Bearcats Junior Skills Camp (July 15-17). The Bearcat Youth Skills Camps is open to all participants in grades 6-8 who wish to get detailed technical instruction in all areas of the game. All skill levels from beginner to intermediate are invited to attend. The Lil’ Bearcats Junior Skills Camps are for players in grades K-5 who are in the early stages of their game. The half-day camp will stress learning each volleyball skill through fun-filled activities.   



For those participants interested in honing their skill sets for a particular position, the team will also conduct Bearcat Specialty Sessions on July 15, 16 and 17. The camps will focus on setters/middle hitters, outside hitters/right-side hitters, and liberos.

Additional information on each camp session can be found online, including camp brochures, registration forms and waivers and releases.
