Event Description

July 20-22, 2020
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. Individual technical skills and the fundamentals passing, attacking, blocking, serving, and setting will be stressed. As campers will be working in small groups, we intend to customize each small group experience based on ability and position(s).

For the summer of 2020, campers are asked to attend with one partner who they have had regular exposure to previously. Campers will be working in cohorts of 6-8 for the length of the camp. Social distancing will be practiced as required by the State of Minnesota, except for between campers and their partners. There is a robust plan for mitigating shared contact of volleyballs and for the disinfection of equipment between sessions. As State guidelines are updated, we will update our camp guidelines.

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.

For the summer of 2020, the ratio of staff to camper will be approximately 1:4. With security-monitored entrances and exits to the campus, Bethel is a great location to send your daughter to camp.

Camp Staff
Camp Director, Gretchen Hunt has been the head volleyball coach at Bethel University for 19 years, compiling an overall record of 349-234. During her 19-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.
