Arlington hosted their first annual Eagles’ Volleyball Freshman Prep Camp on June 20-21.
The camp was held over both days with a pair of two-hour sessions on June 20 and two three-hour sessions on June 21. Typically, the Eagles host a team camp at the beginning of the summer but decided to transition to an incoming freshman only camp in order to give more girls the chance to get a head start on the season.
“We wanted to provide an opportunity to the incoming freshmen to be exposed to the program, learn our fundamentals and get comfortable with us as coaches. As we go into our summer practices and open gyms, we hope that they’ll be better equipped to handle it,” said Arlington Head Coach Whitney Williams.
With the conclusion of their freshman camp, the Eagles have one more camp over the summer for grades 4-8. Arlington’s fifth annual Volleyball Summer Camp will be held from July 25-27, with grades 4-6 at 9-11:30 a.m. and grades 7-8 from 1-4 p.m. It will be held in the Arlington High School gym and will cost $70 per player.
The camp focuses on learning basic individual and team skills from the Arlington coaching staff as well as varsity players from the roster. This year is also going to be the first time that the camp will be welcoming both girls and boys to register.
“Not only do we want them to fall in love with volleyball, we also want them to fall in love with us and the program. Part of the reason I love coaching is helping the kids realize that they can get so much better in a short amount of time. There is nothing better than seeing a player have something click for them and taking another step closer to their potential,” said Coach Williams.
