Volleyball - Mon, Jul. 22, 2013
The offseason is where growth and development is made in athletics. Summer is the biggest push for that with camps and Georgetown College volleyball has been busy helping so many learn and improve.
"This has been another wonderful summer for volleyball camps at Georgetown College," said Tiger coach Nick Griffin. "We continue to receive exciting feedback on our camps from their organization, their intensity and most importantly the skills with which each camper comes away. This is a testament to our wonderful coaches, our players and the tradition of this program."
The Tigers put on two on-campus and eight satellite camps.
"We like to have athletes come here and get the opportunity to experience Georgetown, but we also receive a lot of requests to go to various high schools throughout Kentucky and help run camps," Griffin said. "We want to expose as many people to this great sport and help them develop in any way we can."
Campers came from eight different states – Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, Texas, California and Florida as Griffin's camp saw record numbers this year. The fifth-year coach had nearly 50 middle school athletes and over 70 athletes at the Elite and high school camp.
"The talent level of our Elite Camp continues to grow each and every year," Griffin said. "Not only have five campers over the past two years become members of the GC program, we've also had eight others go on to play at the Division I level."
