Junior Varsity volleyball
Nearly forty elementary and junior high students enjoyed a fun week at the RRCA Volleyball Summer Camps. In addition to working on the fundamental skills of overhand serving, passing, setting, and hitting, the athletes ended each day with fast-paced game play. (Zombie Apocalypse was a player favorite!) The camps were a great way to prepare for the upcoming school season. It's exciting to see so many of our students getting involved with our volleyball program!
