Volleyball Camp

TRU volleyball camp is coming to Quesnel Aug. 21 to 24.

Beach volleyball may seem to be more appropriate for the time of year, but inside the Correlieu gym volleyball lovers will find a more satisfying experience.

The WolfPack Volleyball Camp is back in Quesnel for the ninth consecutive year next week.

“The camp has been a big success in Quesnel with lots of participants and many players moving on to play post secondary,” Chad Grimm, event organizer, said.

Starting Tuesday, Aug. 21 the camp features sessions for student from grade 5 up to grade 12.

With two sessions for each of the four days, younger and older students will be split for the camp.

Younger students, grade 5-8, have the morning sessions, 9 a.m.-11:30 a.m., while the later sessions 1-4 p.m., are for the older, grade 9-12, students.

The current assistant coach for the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack, and Correlieu alum, Chad Grimm runs the camp.

With experience playing volleyball at University levels at UBC, and professional level play in Europe, Grimm has a vast array of experience both as a player and as a coach of volleyball.

The camp is open to both boys and girls. Cost is $100 for the week, which includes a WolfPack t-shirt.
