DeKalb, Ill. - The Northern Illinois volleyball program announced its 2009 summer camps schedule with six one-day position clinics and three different sessions of overnight all-skills camps along with a college intensity camp in the months of June and July. Campers who register before May 29 can save $50 for each overnight camp.
The specialty clinics are for players ages 12-18 and are designed as single day clinics to teach all ability levels and to improve specialty skills, such as setting, hitting and defense. Each clinic includes over five hours of instruction by NIU staff and team members as well as a t-shirt. Each clinic, setting, attacking and defense, will take place twice, once on June 7 and again on July 5.
The overnight all-skills camps are for the same age group which thoroughly cover all volleyball related skills and culminates in tournament play for all campers. It is suggested that players attend this camp before attending the college intensity camp, formerly known as the elite camp. Session I of the all-skills camps runs from June 7-10 and session II runs from June 10-13. The final session is on July 5-8.
The college intensity camp is for players ages 13-18 and is designed for players who want to play and train like the top Huskies. All drills are created for higher intensity to provide greater challenges. This camp is for the higher level volleyball player who competes at the varsity level and has extensive club experience. The college intensity camp runs from July 8-11 and includes the opportunity of attending a USA National Team match versus Italy in Hoffman Estates, Ill. during the July 10 evening session.
