Chad Grimm, assistant coach of the T.R.U. WolfPack Volleyball team and erstwhile Quesnel-ite, is making the trip to the Gold Pan again this year to head up the Wolf Pack Volleyball Summer Camp.
This is the eleventh year Grimm has been back to his old stomping grounds to bring volleyball to the players, instead of the other way around.
“My goal has always been to bring a high level experience into the community so kids don’t have to travel to gain exposure to university volleyball,” Grimm said.
The camp will cover the basics, drilling the young athletes until their muscles memorize the actions so they will be prepared to grow during the season, instead of taking the first half to get their body used to the game again.
This won’t be the only time Grimm will be in town; he’s hoping to bring the whole team the next time as well.
“It is also in our plans at T.R.U. to play another exhibition game in Quesnel this year so that is something the kids can look forward to,” he said.
The camp is comprised of two different sessions each day and runs from Aug. 19 – 22. Athletes entering grades 5-8 will attend the morning session, 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., while older athletes entering grades 9-12 attend the later, 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. session.
The camp costs $100, which includes a camp t-shirt.
