The 19th Annual Milbank Bulldog Volleyball Camp dates have been set and registrations are due. The summer camps will be under the direction of Nancy Hoeke.
The varsity/junior varsity camp for athletes in grades 10-12 will be June 13-14 at the Milbank Armory. The camp will run 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday. The cost is $60, but fees can be adjusted for players who took part in the team’s annual fundraising. “This year’s camp will be led by Kelsey Titus, assistant coach at the University of Jamestown,” said Coach Hoeke. “Kelsey was a standout player at Northern State University.” The camp will teach upper-level skills for good offense and defense by position.
