Volleyball players wanting to improve their skills and enjoy some summertime fun should register now for the Panther Volleyball Camp in Granby this June and July.

Held in the gym at East Grand Middle School, the volleyball camp is designed for high school and middle school players. It is an opportunity for them to upgrade their skills before next fall’s competitions.

“Don’t miss the action at our camp and come join us,” said Kris Newberry, who is Middle Park High’s head volleyball coach and the camp’s organizer. “We’ll help you correct those bad, old playing habits and teach you some new skills. Our reasonably-priced technical skills camp will prepare you for the school tryouts late this summer.”

The Panther Volleyball Camp’s first session is for high school players who will be entering ninth through 12th grades this fall. Its schedule is: Friday and Saturday, June 13-14, and Wednesday through Friday, June 18-20. All sessions are from 5-8 p.m. except on June 14 when the hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The camp’s second session is for middle school players who will be in sixth through eighth grades next fall. Its classes will be held Monday through Friday, July 7-11, from 2:30-5:30 p.m. in the middle school’s gym.

The head coach for the Panther Volleyball Camp is Father Michael Freihofer, who is a skilled volleyball technician and coach. He coached club volleyball teams for 10 years and college teams for five years. In addition, he has helped more than 30 players put together college recruitment videos.

Assisting Freihofer will be the coaching staff of Middle Park High’s volleyball team as well as the coaches from local club teams.

“Our camp will focus on the fundamental skills of volleyball such as passing, serving, spiking, blocking and setting,” Newberry said. “We will also be videotaping the players for skill breakdown and analysis.”

The cost of a camp session is $85 per person. For more information or to register, call coach Kris Newberry at 726-0160.
