Volleyball Campers Getting Top-Notch Instruction
July 10, 2012
PULLMAN - The 132 campers on campus attending the Washington State University volleyball camp this week are learning new techniques and fine-tuning skills from a cadre of outstanding coaches, Cougar Head Coach Jen Greeny said Tuesday.
The campers, double the number that attended the 2011 individual camp, are receiving top-notch instruction not only from Head Coach Greeny, an All-Pac-10 player at WSU, and the rest of the Cougar staff including assistant coaches Pat Stangle and Burdette Greeny, and volunteer coach Shannon Hunt.
In addition to the WSU coach staff, 2012 WSU All-American, All-Pac-12, and now professional volleyball player Meagan Ganzer, as well as 2010 NAIA All-American player Nicole Graybeal, and the ten returning Cougar volleyball players from 2011 roster are providing the campers with their experience and enthusiasm for the game of volleyball while establishing all-around fundamentals. WSU Operations Coordinator Katie Hinrichs is providing behind the scenes support to keep the camp running smoothly.
"We really enjoy seeing our campers develop their abilities and learn to enjoy the game of volleyball in a positive environment that leads to success," Greeny said.
At the conclusion of the individual camp, a team camp begins with two days of instruction followed by two days of tournament action. More than 20 teams and over 200 campers, triple the numbers from last year, coming from throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana, will participate in the team camp activities and compete in a collegiate setting.
"The WSU team camp provides opportunities for high school squads to practice together and develop as a group while improving individual techniques," Greeny said.
