LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas volleyball announced several opportunities are still available this summer to learn from back-to-back Big 12 Coach of the Year Ray Bechard, his coaching staff and the rest of the Jayhawks.
Although the team has been in the gym for several camps and clinics this summer,  the Jayhawks will be back to host many more in July. Two more sessions of team camps will be offered in July, the first from July 11-13 and the second from July 14-16. The second overnight skills camp of the summer will run July 18-20. 
“We really enjoy these camps and are very pleased with the turnout over the past few seasons,” Bechard said. “They provide a great way for our staff and our players to connect with the community and with volleyball players in our area. We can welcome them to our campus, spend time with them and hopefully improve each individual’s skillset, as well as, promote the strength of the game locally.”

Skills Camps
The emphasis of the individual overnight skills camp is to teach and develop the fundamental techniques of volleyball, as well as game strategies. Basic skills are stressed in drills, while team play is incorporated to teach how all the fundamentals fit in the game.
Campers will be evaluated in all skills and receive a camp notebook detailing the camp’s training methods. This camp is open to athletes entering grades 6-12 in the of Fall 2014. Campers will compete in the equivalent of 10 league and tournament matches. Each league team will be assigned a camp staff member to help facilitate all the skills learned throughout the camp.
Campers stay overnight in Naismith Hall, a dorm located on campus just 100 yards from HFAC. Athletes are allowed to pick their own roommates.
Team Camps
The Jayhawk Volleyball Team Camp is designed to provide varsity and junior varsity high school teams with the opportunity to train and compete under the direction and guidance of an outstanding coaching staff.
The daily schedule will include two skills sessions focusing on position training and transition work. Competitive league play will be the emphasis at each evening session. If a high school coach is unable to attend with their team, a veteran coach from our camp staff will be assigned to the team.
