CHICO, Calif. -- Girls and boys from all over the county gathered at Chico High and Chico Jr. this week for some lessons on the game.
The head coach of Chico High volleyball, Laine Hensley led the group and alongside him was UC Irvine's head volleyball coach and Chico High alum, David Kniffen.
They say the camp is to help young athletes perfect their skills as well as motivate them before their season try-outs.
"I think it's important to just get back into the discipline after a long summer," said Kniffen. [Get] back to the rhythm of the game and just get back to the grind of not just volleyball that they're going to experience, but high shool. There's a lot of patterns and crossover between success in school and success in sports. So it's a great opportunity to get back in the rhythm."
The camp will run until next week.
The USA National assistant coach Nicole Lawlor is expected to attend on Thursday and Friday. Coach Hensley said even if you're not signed up for the camp and would like to meet Nicole, you can.
