Golden Knights Volleyball Camp is good for incoming 9th graders; email coach for flyer at bethpowell@optonline.net.  


If you are looking for camps or clinics - see if one of the colleges you are interested in has a camp. It is a good opportunity to spend time at the school and see if you would like it. It also gives the coach at the school a chance to see you play.

Nike runs good camps at various college campuses. A good local camp is Runge Volleyball Camp.

Playing at the next level....

Get started on contacting colleges NOW... sophomore year is a good time to get on the radar. Most of you are not D1 prospects but you can play in college.

“The biggest thing is to get out there,” . “There are so many kids that have the dream and the goal to get to the next level. Realistically, not everyone is a Division One player, but there are other levels that play as well. It is important to be honest with yourself and realistic. Research as many schools as you can and get to Camps. Focus on your business in the classroom to make yourself more attractive to the schools."

-Work on your grades first-they matter to EVERY school

-Make sure you like the school aside from the volleyball aspect

-Be your own advocate, email, send video, let the coach know you are truly interested

-Know the program and the school- look at their websites

-If you play club send your club schedule NOW

Believe in yourself-you are good and you can play!

Keep playing volleyball in your spare time.
"Don't think that you can make up for it by working twice as hard tomorrow. If you have it within your power to work twice as hard, why aren't you doing it now?"
