2007 Camp Format:

Thursday:   9 am to 12:30pm.
The camp was split by Coach Mills into a Black Division and a Red Division. 

Thursday was tournament day for the Black Division campers!!  Red campers will still have their portion, but we asked them to come over and watch the Black tournament!!

Cost:  $150

If you have any questions about the camp, you may email the camp director, Coach Houser,
at or the camp host,
JF Head Coach Steve Mills, at

The "Black" division had an 18 camper limit.  The "Red" division had a 24 camper limit. 

In Order To Register : 

Campers were asked to email Coach Mills and he sent them the registration form.  They were then asked to fax it to him (ask him for the fax #) or mail it to him at 1032 Middle View Drive, Forest Va, 24551. 


JV-B Camp Director:
Nikki Johnson
Coach Johnson was a star setter at William Byrd High (played against my Bassett teams!) and continued her playing career as a setter at Hollins University.  Now she
is the head coach at Lord Botetourt High.   Coach Johnson is a smiling, encouraging person who impresses people each time her teams play!  I've hoped that she & I could coach a travel volleyball team together, but she's too valuable to Roanoke Juniors as a head coach.
