My Students

Volleyball is definitely just an older kid's sport in our town. There are teams and competitions for our middle school and high school students, but not much for our younger kids.

Having a volleyball camp for our elementary and early middle school kids will definitely boost the enthusiasm for our volleyball program and strengthen our teams.

The camp will incorporate basic fitness, team building, volleyball drills, and skills and culminate in a mini-tournament. The kids will learn so much and grow in their volleyball skills.

My Project

By supporting this project, you will be giving girls in our community a chance to improve their volleyball skills and be physically active with their peers.

Being able to take home a volleyball at the end of the day is HUGE because most kids don't have access to sporting equipment!

These girls can take the skills that they learn in camp and practice it all summer long because they will have access to the equipment.

The biggest struggle that we have in our volleyball program is just the lack of ball touches and practice year round. Kids need to eat, sleep, and play order to get better!

Girls will have the opportunity to win the prizes you are purchasing through this project...volleyballs, knee pads, and headbands. They will also get to utilize the spike right apparatus during the camp.
