Volleyball camp rescheduled


The Parkland volleyball camp for girls in Grades 6 to 10 is back on.
Originally scheduled for last August, the camp was postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
With the new restrictions in place, the camp will now be held over the course of four Sundays, beginning, Mar. 21 and continuing, Apr. 11, 18 and 25.
Girls still registered will be contacted this week to determine the number of participants.
Camp co-ordinator Ted Rea said it is great the camp will be able to take place.
There were a number of players who registered last fall and did not get reimbursed. They will participate in this year’s camp.
“If some are going to opt out, then it may open up some spots. Right now, we are going to run five one-hour sessions each Sunday. So there would be five groups of 10 girls each coming in for an hour and then basically leaving,” Rea explained.
The camp will be held at Parkland Crossing from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“It will start with the younger girls starting at one and then the older girls will be finishing up later in the day,” Rea said.
More information on the camp will be announced in the next week.
When it comes to the Parkland Vipers club volleyball program, only one age group, the U15s, will be on the court because of the new public health orders allowing only 10 players.
Rea noted the U15 team is the only one with 10 players. All other teams have at least 12.
“It’s too bad we can’t have some tryouts at the other levels. But realistically, I don’t think we’re going to be playing any games this year. It will just be a few practices and taking part in the camp. That will probably be it,” he said.
