Emphasis will be placed on passing, setting, hitting, serving, blocking, serve receive, defense, communication and teamwork at the 15th Annual Ceres High School Volleyball Camp next week.

The four-day clinic will be staged, June 18-21, at Phil de la Porte Gymnasium.

“The purpose of the camp is to introduce the sport to boys and girls at a younger age and to improve the skills of athletes that have already played,” said Darlene Tobler, head coach of Ceres High’s varsity girls and boys volleyball programs. 

The 2017 clinic drew 50-plus participants.

“We’re hoping to get more kids this year,” Tobler said. “It’s a different environment. It’s a lot of fun.”

Tobler and fellow Bulldog coach Meliesa Stiles will provide instruction.

“We teach fundamentals the right way,” Tobler said. “It creates good habits from the start.”

The session for third through seventh graders will run from 3-5 p.m.

The session for grades 8-12 will run from 5-7 p.m.

Cost is $50 per athlete.

“We have students from other towns come to our camp,” Tobler said. “It’s open to all athletes. We just want to grow the sport.”
