Here are pictures from the June camp.  Pics from the May clinic are at the bottom.


The Veteran & Rookies Working Together!!
Even though the vets & rookies were apart most of the camp, we forgot to take pics during most of the vet camp.
Jessie and Lori are successful at reading the net during the hands-hands warmup. Faith & Christy get to the net and try go beyond it! 
Most teams couldn't! 
To the left it's Megan and Marilee.  Close to the net it's Hannah and Holly.  Both teams are doing the arms-hands drill. Lori (left) and Jasmine do the bump-catch warmup drill.  Where's Caleb going?  He really needs a partner!
Jamie and Hannah will both still be in elem. school next year, but both are going to be GREAT ballplayers! Megan and Allison prepare for a drill.  But girls gave a great effort at the camp. The coaches are proud of them!
Haley & Wanda try to get from the back line to the net. Wanda:  Your game is improved SO SO much in the past 2 years.  You're awesome! Faith (left) came to the camp from Martinsville.  She played juniors for the Piedmont East this past spring and is a super ballplayer!
Jamie & assistant coach Lori Draughon work together. Here Lori demo's the proper way to set All the rookies and vets and coaches stretch after warming up.   All STAR camps start off this way. 
Jessie & Holly talk about "team". 
GOOD LUCK Holly at Meredith College this fall!
We finish up camp with Bonus Ball!  Holly's team went undefeated.  Here is Jessie (left), Hannah and Joy trying to beat Coach Houser's team.......yeah, right. 

The Rookie Camp!!

 On the first day of rookie camp, the campers take a periodic break to write down all that they can remember about each skill.  All STAR rookie campers get lots of handouts and sheets so that they won't forget what they've learn. On the left, Haley & Holly work together, on the right it's Jamie & Leanne.
At the end of the first day of the rookie camp, each team tried the "Circle Contact" drill where the coaches & campers attempt to pass the ball around their group.  How many "cycles" can they perform before making an error?  Marilee's team performed 3 cycles and were the winners!
Coach Lori & Megan, Caleb and Coach Marilee!
Thanks assistant coaches for all your help.  You guys were awesome!!
