The EWC Lancer Volleyball Camp is designed to focus on player experience rather than a grade or age based approach.
The Beginner Camp offers basic skill development including: serving, passing, setting, hitting, blocking, digging, serve receive, and game strategies. This camp is designed as an introduction to volleyball and is recommended for grades 5-8 and players with limited or no middle school experience.
The Advanced Camp is designed for players with a higher level of experience (regardless of age or grade) including multiple years of club, from advanced middle school programs, and/or with high school experience. Focus will be directed towards refining individual skills, running quick offenses and multiple defenses, and ultimately preparing players to be competitive in their high school and college programs.
The Setter/Libero Camp offers specialized position training and is designed for players from grades 6-12. It offers intense technical and tactical training and high repetition setting, defensive and serve receive drills.
The camps are facilitated by Coach Julie Sherbeyn and are assisted by the EWC Volleyball Team. Coach Sherbeyn moves into her fourth season at the helm of the Eastern Wyoming College Volleyball Program, and is coming off a very successful season with her squad tallying a 21-12 record. Her coaching career has spanned three states, almost 30 years, and hundreds of volleyball athletes of all ages and skill levels. Before coming to EWC, she helped turn around a failing program at Illinois Valley Community College and coached for and directed IVVP, a successful non-profit volleyball club. Her collegiate and club athletes have competed at all levels of the NCAA and NAIA, and some have continued to impact their sport and its athletes as coaches across the country. Coach Sherbeyn's goal is to provide a positive instructional environment and skill development to enable players to experience personal success and enhance their future volleyball opportunities.
