KCC volleyball players teach skills camps for girls

Today is the third day of the four-day volleyball skills camps for girls hosted by Kellogg Community College’s Lifelong Learning Department.

Sixteen campers ranging in grade level from 6th to 11th grade participated in this round of the camp, which is being taught by members of the college’s volleyball team and overseen by head volleyball coach Amy Julien in the Miller Gymnasium.

Julien, who played volleyball for Kellogg Community College as a student in 2001 and 2002 and who served as assistant volleyball coach to the team last year, said funds from camp fees help defray some seasonal costs for the team, including travel and equipment costs, as well as tournament fees.

“The girls use the money towards their season,” she said. “So I have them get involved.”

The college’s volleyball team starts practices in August, and their first home game is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, against Kalamazoo Valley Community College.
