Our camp is designed to improve your basic skills - passing, setting, serving and hitting - to advance your overall game. Learning and developing proper skills and technique as a young player will help you in the future. By starting with the basics, you will begin to set the foundation for stronger playing as you start to play on league, Junior and High school teams. Part of the program will include game time, with each team having a coach to encourage correct skill and team development.
Meet your coach: Your coach is Sue Bedient. Coach Bedient lead the Varsity Volleyball at Barron High School for fourteen years - they were Conference Champs twelve of those years. For the past three years, Coach Bedient has lead the womens team at UW-Barron County and won the WCC State Championship this past fall. Our assistants for this program will be talented former players who have been trained by Coach Bedient.
