Islanders Volleyball Begins Summer Camps

The Texas A&M – Corpus Christi volleyball team started its annual round of camps on Monday, the first day of what will be a busy two weeks for Volleyball players on the Island.

"We are really excited about the start of camps," said head coach Tony Graystone. "We are getting to work with local players again this summer, and we have a really nice camp format going with the position camps, followed by high school and middle school competition camps.

"Everybody will get a chance to play and get some really good coaching. It is a good part of the summer for us to bridge gap between end of spring season and start of two-a-days, really good time for us."

On Monday, the Setter/Libero Camp started at the Moody Fieldhouse, and it will run through Tuesday afternoon on campus. The coaches will focus on the specific positions for that session, and will work on technique and the fundamentals of the position.

Start on July 5, the program will host high school skills camps, as well as competition camps for athletes currently in grade 9th-12th. There will be skills and competition camps for middle school volleyball players starting on July 9 and running until the 12th next week.

"Our position camps are really specific to what they do," said Graystone. "The players get some really good training in smaller groups while working on core skills.

"The middle school and high school ones are more general camps, with 6-on-6 training and team concepts."

Prices vary depending on specific sessions, and can be found on the official website for the summer camps at www.IslanderVolleyballCamps.com.
