Lee University Hosts Volleyskillz League
Tuesday, January 30, 2018
The Lee University Volleyskillz league will return for its 10th season from Mar. 12 - Apr. 11 under the direction of Lady Flames' head volleyball coach Andrea Hudson.
Volleyskillz focuses on the fundamentals of serving, passing, setting, hitting and blocking. The league is geared for children ages 9-14 and is led by the Lee coaching staff and players.
"This is our tenth year of Volleyskillz and we still feel this is the best thing going in Bradley County for kids learning the skills of volleyball, said Hudson.
We call it Volleyskillz because it’s not about the kids getting in there and just playing games we focus on teaching the essential skills of volleyball.”
The league will feature 10 sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays (4:00 p.m. -5:30 p.m.) and will take place at Lee's Paul Dana Walker Arena.
"We offer 10 sessions which amounts to getting three hours a week of almost one-to-one training with our players and coaches,” noted Hudson. “When kids leave here they are ready and prepared to take the next step and play on club and school teams with the fundamentals they have learned.”
Mary Dukes, mother of first-time camper last year Sara-Allison Dukes, spoke about the importance of Volleyzkillz, “It’s an amazing opportunity for young players to learn the game the right way. The whole team really cares and it’s a great way to get individual attention for the kids as they are learning the basics of the game.”
The total cost of the camp is $125 with sibling discounts available. Spots are filling up quickly so make sure to turn in your down payment of $50 quickly to reserve your place. For more information or to register contact coach Hudson at 423-614-8453 or email at email@example.com
