The Colby Community College volleyball program will hold multiple camps in June for students entering first through 12th grades.

Tenth-year head coach Carey Jones and assistant coach Shelby Gardner will lead the camps.

"We are really excited for camps this summer," said Gardner. "It is a good opportunity to have kids of all ages and skill levels learn the game and for us as coaches and players who come back to help share our love of the game with the youth of our community and surrounding areas."

On June 3 and 4, the overnight middle school camp is for participants entering fifth through eighth grades. Instruction will be given on passing, setting, hitting and serving.

A setter clinic will be offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 7 for students in seventh through 12th grades. Campers will learn specific setting drills in addition to in-depth setter footwork, technique and hand and set placement.

The high school skills camp is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 26-27. The focus will be on passing, setting, hitting, blocking, defense, serving and serve-receive.
