Spring Break Volleyball camp for grades 3-8 begins March 17

Providing boys and girls in grades three through eight with basic skills in the game of volleyball is the goal of a Spring Break Volleyball Camp being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

This camp will take place over Spring Break, Monday, March 17 through Thursday, March 20, at both the Okun Fieldhouse, located at the Mid-America West Sports Complex, 20200 Johnson Drive, Shawnee, and at the New Century Fieldhouse, 551 New Century Parkway, near Gardner. Serving, passing, and setting, hitting, as well as fun games and drills will be covered. The overall aim is to provide a positive learning environment in which participants can improve their skills. Campers will be divided into groups depending on their grade and level of play. The camp's director is Rachel Magana - Founder and Coach of the Southwind Rising Volleyball.

The program will begin at 9 a.m. at Okun and at 1:30 p.m. at New Century. The cost for four three-hour sessions is $75 for Johnson County residents or $80 for nonresidents. Each participant will receive a camp T-shirt.
