Good evening Coaches! It is that time of year again to start thinking about Summer Volleyball Camps! All of you have participated in the Hillsdale College Volleyball Team Camp before, but I wanted to send you the new information for this year's camp. There are a few exciting new things this year:

1. Our new facility is complete, which will allow us to accommodate more teams and play in both gyms.

2. We have included an overnight option for teams as well. The attached document contains all of the information you will need for that!

 

I will also include the link to our website where you can find all of the additional camp information.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing many of your teams again this year! http://www.hillsdalechargers.com/athletics/camps
