It's a way for us to be out in the sun enjoying nature while working on our volleyball skills for indoor volleyball in the fall. Grass is a great compromise between sand and indoor. You get the spring off the ground like you would the court, but you get to be outside and soak up the great Minnesota air.
We aren't making this up, people LOVE grass volleyball!
Grass Volleyball Craze!
This program is similar to a skills camp and there are three age levels offered:
Beginner: Ages 8-10; Intermediate: Ages 11-13; Advanced: Ages 14-18.
Age exceptions can be made if there is sufficient proof the player belongs in a different level. This volleyball camp will meet for one hour twice a week. Camp t-shirt will be included.
