St. Paul hosts youth volleyball camp

Posted: Updated:

The AA GUAHAN VC Youth Winter Volleyball Camp was held at the St Paul Gym with 100 youth players ages 8-14 years old sharpening up their skills. The camp was broken up into 2 sessions with the older kids focusing on the transition aspect of the game while the younger players learned the basic fundamentals of the sport.

Jenz Sabangan, Camp Coach, said, "They worked on passing, setting, serving, overhand and trying to get those 3 touches before sending the ball over the net. And we have seen big improvements from even the youngest and the little kids."

For 7th grader Nyarah Paet the camp was fun and something she used to get better as a player. She says she learned a lot and can't wait for next year's camp, adding, "I think the camp is really great it has taught me a lot. Like how to set better because I'm a setter at St Francis. I would love to come back here again because I have made so many new friends and I have learned so much. I would like to learn more so I can better myself as a volleyball player."

Campers learned teamwork, strategies and played in fun filled games that put their new skills to the test. There were 4 adult coaches and 10 camp counselors assisting with the camp.

Tasha Garrido, Camp Coach said, "Overall the camp was a real success and we are happy to see all of these kids come out and learn volleyball. Try and raise the level here on Guam and just try to make it as popular as soccer and basketball."
