March 4, 2014
CINCINNATI – The University of Cincinnati volleyball team is excited to announce a new elite camp with 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Touzinsky. The camp, hosted in conjunction with the UC volleyball program, will be an all skills camp and will take place May 30 – June 1 on the campus of the University of Cincinnati.
Touzinsky’s elite volleyball camp is an all skills camp that works on the campers’ fundamentals, technique and mental toughness. The goal is to develop a solid foundation so that each camper can become an elite volleyball player. Touzinsky strives to maintain a fun and competitive atmosphere so each camper can get the most out of each touch of the volleyball.
The camp will focus on skills such as ball control, defensive positioning, advanced attacking, serving variation, footwork and the mental game.
Campers will also get the opportunity to see and take a picture with Touzinsky’s Olympic gold medal from the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
“Scott has played the highest level of volleyball in the world and against the best players in the world” said UC volleyball head coach Molly Alvey. “To have access to his experience and volleyball IQ for three days at this camp is invaluable to any camper and coach attending. We are excited as a staff to have the unique opportunity to have Scott on our UC campus.”
The camp will be open to boys and girls ages 12-18. Boys and girls will each have three sessions, with the boys sessions running on Friday, May 30 (3:30 p.m. – 6 p.m.), Saturday, May 31 (9 a.m. – noon) and Sunday, June 1 (9 a.m. – noon) and the girls sessions running on Friday, May 30 (6:30 p.m. – 9 p.m.), Saturday, May 31 (1 p.m. – 4 p.m.) and Sunday, June 1 (1 p.m. – 4 p.m.).
All camps will cost $150 per camper when registering on or before May 1, 2014, and $175 per camper when registering after May 1, 2014.
Touzinsky won an Olympic gold medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics with the United States men’s volleyball team. He spent six years as a member of the US National Team and spent 10 years playing professionally overseas in Germany, Turkey, Slovenia, Spain, Puerto Rico, Belgium and Greece.
