Event Description

July 21-24, 2019
This individual skills camp is designed for female athletes with at least three seasons of competitive volleyball experience through school, club, or a combination, who are entering grades 9-12. The camp is not intended for beginning players; athletes who attend should have experience playing specific positions of setter, hitter, or defensive specialist. Instructional groups will be formed according to skill level. Individual play and fundamentals specific to each position will be stressed, but many team concepts will also be introduced. The camp will end with a team "tournament" on the last day.

About the Camps
Bethel University Christian Volleyball Camps provide opportunities for players to reach their potential through athletic and spiritual training. Campers receive nondenominational instruction from Christian coaches and players so that players from all backgrounds feel welcome. Campers will get the personal instruction needed to improve in the physical parts of the game, but will also learn how faith can be incorporated into athletics.

Despite the growth of Bethel University Volleyball Camps in the last several years, the ratio of coach to camper remains very low, with approximately one coach to every eight campers. With security-monitored entrances and exits to the campus after dark, Bethel is a great location to send your daughter for an overnight camp.

Camp Staff
Camp Director, Gretchen Hunt has been the head volleyball coach at Bethel University for 18 years, compiling an overall record of 332-223. During her 18-year tenure, Bethel has received a bid to the NCAA National Tournament four times, including a trip to the NCAA Championship site (final eight teams) in 2015. In addition, Hunt has coached several Junior Olympic volleyball teams, taking four to USAV Junior Nationals.

Hunt has previously served as the lead setter training coach at the Minnesota Select Volleyball Club, Crossfire Volleyball Club, and Heartland Volleyball Club. She has worked with summer camps for the past 24 years.

Camp Assistants
Head and assistant coaches from area high schools and club programs serve as head coaches. Current Bethel University players serve as assistant coaches and counselors in the dorms at night. A certified athletic trainer is present before, during, and after all practice sessions.

Cost
The camp fee of $375 ($315 for commuters) includes instruction, housing (for non-commuters), eight meals (six for commuters), two pizza parties, T-shirt, volleyball, devotional materials, and full use of Bethel University facilities. A $100 deposit is required with registration. Applicants will be accepted in the order received until camp limit of 120 is reached. A confirmation letter, camper instruction sheet and directions to Bethel will be emailed to you upon receipt of your application. Campers can not pay the remaining amount (if they choose a deposit-only) by credit card when they check in at the camp. The final payment, should you choose to reserve your spot with a deposit only, can only be made with cash or check.
