HFC volleyball head coach Rosemary Motamedi will run the camp. The 2017 HFC volleyball team, led by several all-conference players, will serve as camp assistants. Those who are interested must enroll in the camp that corresponds to the grade they will be entering this fall.

The camp fee is $85 for the middle school camp (this includes a camp T-shirt) and $125 for the high school camp. The fees include a camp T-shirt.

Skills that will be taught at the middle school camp, which runs from 9 to 11:30 a.m. each day are: service, passing, blocking, defense, setting and attacking.
This camp is open to students entering grades 5 to 8 in the fall. It is for beginners to experienced volleyball players.
