Matadors to host camp
Arizona Western volleyball coach Jason Smith will host a volleyball camp.
The camps will be at the same time on July 22-24 for the general camp and July 25-26 for the position camp.
All campers will receive quality instruction from AWC coaches and players. Campers will be taught the fundamental skills of passing, serving, hitting, setting and blocking, as well as learn about different offensive and defensive systems of play in the all-skills camp. Position camp allows campers to focus on one position for the two-day camp to improve that area of expertise. Campers will be divided into groups based on age and/or skill level.
The general camp is $125 and the skill camp is $85, or $195 to sign up for both camps in a week.
