FROSTBURG, MD —
Frostburg State University will host the FSU Volleyball School for two weeks this coming summer at the Harold J. Cordts Physical Education Center.
An individual skills camp will be held July 28 to August 1, and a team camp will follow August 4-8.
The FSU Volleyball School will be directed by Bobcat head volleyball coach Jeff Billington, who guided a young FSU squad to a runner-up finish in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference tournament in his first season.
The camp will also feature Nila Torbio Straka, current director of the Global Volleyball Camp; Jamie Petrick, head coach at Paul VI High School in Fairfax, Va.; and Chris Bowman, assistant coach at Frostburg State.
The FSU Volleyball School will offer instruction in the fundamental mechanics of forearm passing, overhead set, over- and underhand serving, blocking, digging and spiking.
Counselors will focus on team play, including rotational defense, middle up defense and the different offensive formations (i.e. 5-1, 4-2, 6-2).
Enrollment is limited to a player-to-counselor ratio of no more than 10 to 1. FSU's outstanding facilities will allow for up to nine courts in the Cordts P.E. Center, and campers will have access to the indoor swimming pool and rock climbing wall during evening free time.
Commuter and resident options are available. Resident campers will be housed in one of FSU's spacious residence halls (two to a room), and all campers will eat meals in Chesapeake Dining Hall featuring a wide selection of food.
Registration forms are available on the internet at http://sports.frostburg.edu/camps/index.htm or by calling Coach Billington at (301) 687-7014.
Both the application and a nonrefundable deposit must be received in order to reserve a place in the camp. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come basis until camps are filled. Participants will be notified of their acceptance via e-mail.
