Each session culminated into 6-on-6 volleyball play. Youngsters learned the importance of good sportsmanship and teamwork.

New Cougar coaches Susie Hunter for varsity and Sara Nelson for JVs supervised the camp.

“We have a variety of ages of athletes from CCA, St. Mary’s School, and Big Rapids Middle/Elementary schools,” Hunter said.

Former CCA volleyball standout Triston Murray helped out with the camp.

“We were doing a lot of scrimmaging and showing the really young girls on how to play,” Murray said. “It was a lot of fun.”
