Students in grades 4 through 8 of all skill levels will find something to enjoy in Harker’s summer volleyball program. Participants will work on individual skills such as passing, setting, hitting and serving. Visits from Stanford University and Santa Clara University will present a unique opportunity for students to receive top-level instruction and advice.
Coaches Dan Molin and Theresa “Smitty” Smith bring a combined 40 years of volleyball experience to the program. Molin, once named to Volleyball Magazine’s “Fab 50” list, has been recognized by the American Volleyball Coaches Association as a 200-win coach. A member of the 1990 U.S. Amateur Olympic Volleyball team, Smith’s many accolades include being chosen the Positive Coaching Alliance’s Double Goal Coach of the year in 2007. “The entire coaching staff have years of experience coaching volleyball and have a firm grasp of the fundamentals,” said Molin. “They will notice a marked improvement in all of their volleyball skills.”
Skills that students will work on include passing, setting, hitting and serving. They will run drills that help to build individual skills as well as teamwork. Students will also have the chance to hear advice from and practice with college-level coaches.
The Harker summer volleyball program will be held July 16-20, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. each day at Harker’s middle school campus. Each student will receive a volleyball and a camp t-shirt. For more information and to register, please visit http://summer.harker.org/page.cfm?p=2381.
