Hackett VB Camp Was A Smashing Good Time

For four days straight, May 24-27, the Hackett Lady Hornets aced their little ballers volleyball camp with a total of 97 kiddos along with 41 Jr and Sr volley workers and 2 coaches. Turning up to make this year’s summer session a success, kids in grades K-6th were eager to learn basic skills such as passing, blocking, hitting, serving, setting, and digging. The first two days were set aside for the K-3rd players while the 4th-6th graders finished the last two days. “I thought this year was an amazing camp,” exclaimed Head Volleyball Coach, Bridget Freeman. “I did not know what to expect after not having camp last year when Covid shut us down. So, I limited my camp to kindergarten through sixth this year instead of continuing up into ninth grade. I thought my numbers would decrease but we had 97 excited girls ready to learn and play the game of volleyball. I would say our highlights were learning to dive for the ball on defense, playing games, learning pancakes, playing in the rain, and of course getting popsicles!”

Assistant Volley Coach, Broc Adams concluded, “Both the basketball and volleyball camps went really well! We had a great turnout and got a lot done over the two days with each age group! Our older players did a great job of coming and helping! I hope that it will continue to grow each year because I really enjoy working with those age groups and watching them grow!”
