By Lindsey Myers published April 16, 2009

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs announced Thursday that enrollment has begun for summer volleyball camps, which will be run by new Mountain Lions volleyball coach Keith Barnett and assistant coach Lindsey Myers. Three camps - All Skills, Advanced Skills and Team - will be held.

Run from June 27-29 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., the All Skills Camp is for campers between the ages of 12 to 18. This camp will offer the latest techniques, tactics and training methods as well as drills currently used by UCCS, the USA National Team and other top collegiate and international programs. The Coach to Player ratio is approximately 6-to-1, so there is great opportunity for skill growth and play. Campers will have the option to commute or stay the night. The charge for overnighters is $250 and for commuters is $200.

The Advanced Skills Camp will be held July 19-23 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and is geared for campers between the ages 15 to 18 with experience at the varsity or club levels. This camp will be run similar to a college practice in order to prepare athletes that would like to compete at the colligate level in the future. The latest techniques will be taught at a high level, as well as a good amount of six vs. six play. The Advanced Skills camp is for commuters only and is $175 per camper.

The Team Camp is for high school teams and will run from August 7-8. This camp will be run in tournament format with additional sessions on coaching strategies/tactics, skills training, and college recruiting for coaches and players. This is a commuter-only camp, so for more information on local hotels please see the registration form on the camp website.

All campers for the All Skills and Advanced Skills Camps will receive a UCCS Volleyball Camp T-shirt. For more information and registration forms please visit www.uccscamps.com. If you have any questions please contact Coach Barnett at 719-255-3282 or kbarnett@uccs.edu.
