Monday Aug. 1 and Tuesday Aug. 2, Coach Angie Venable, volleyball coach at Head Middle Magnet School, held a volleyball skills camp for the fifth through eighth grade girls. Twenty-eight new, current and past HMMS students participated in the inaugural summer volleyball camp. Camp was open to young ladies of all skill levels from never having played to current players on middle school teams. Coach Venable’s instruction covered the fundamentals of passing, setting, serving and hitting, as well as fine tuning technique with the more advanced player. But the best part was, they had a blast!
