Volleyball camps June 4-22.


The City of Milton and Overkill Volleyball will offer a series of camps this summer at Northwestern Middle School from June 4 through 22.

Cost for youth camps is $165, which includes a T-shirt, participation prize, and snacks. Cost for advanced camps is $240. Registration is limited to 40 campers a week.

The camps are offered by age group and skill level:
* 7 to 9: June 4 through 8 -- 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
* 10 to 12: June 11 through 15 -- 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
* 10 to 12 advanced: June 11 through 15 -- 1 to 4 p.m.
* 13 to 14: June 18 through 22 - 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
* 13 to 14 advanced: June 18 through 22 -- 1 to 4 p.m.

Youth camps are designed to introduce the game to beginner and intermediate players, and coaches focus on fundamentals. Participants learn necessary skills to develop into a volleyball player. There is one coach per 10 participants.

Advanced camps are designed to further develop the seasoned player. Players who participate in this camp must have consistent fundamental skills in passing and serving. During advanced camps, the players develop more game-specific goals and work on positions to be ready for middle and high school tryouts. Again, there is one coach per 10 players.
