Volleyball camp being served up

High level volleyball instruction is being offered to athletes in Grades 4 to 12 June 30 to July 4.

The camp will take place at Princess Margaret Secondary and Pen High and instructor John Buckley anticipates between 100 and 200 players, mostly locals, will sign up. The camp features drill practice, skill progressions, game strategies, fitness and advice on nutrition, as well as beach game sessions.

“It is like a season of practice condensed into one week of 15 hours,” said Buckley, who has been holding the camp for more than 20 years.

Joining Buckley are Rich Corrie and Robert Gunning, experienced high school coaches with eight provincial championships between them.

Buckley said the camp offers players further development to prepare for their upcoming school seasons.

The co-ed camp has students in Grades 4 to 6 from 9 a.m. to noon. Older boys and girls will be separated in Grades 7 to 9 and 10 to 12. The boys session is from 9 a.m. to noon and the girls from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Princess Margaret and Pen High, respectively.

The camp also includes a barbecue, game play and athletes will receive T-shirts.

The cost for the camp is $150. After June 30, there is a late registration charge of $20. For more information and camp registration contact Buckley, Corrie or Gunning at,, or
