Positive environment establishes vibe for New Wave Volleyball

Bella Ellis knows for a fact the main thing a youthful volleyball player can get is consolation.

The Utica senior setter was showing setting and serving during the current week’s New Wave Volleyball camp at the Buckeye Valley Family YMCA. Not all things will stick, but rather Ellis needed her understudies to essentially leave with a similar inclination she did.

“I adored it when I was pretty much nothing. I generally thought it was so cool when the high schoolers told me the best way to pass or set a ball, and at whatever point they praised me, I thought it was the best thing ever,” Ellis said. “I love having the option to pass that on, particularly to the more youthful age and ideally they get on the thing we’re doing.”

In excess of 100 campers split into two gatherings going from grades one through eight partook in the three-day camp.

Club volleyball programs were hit hard by the Covid-19 as the 2020 spring season scarcely made headway. Summer guidance then, at that point was restricted to little one-day facilities.

“I can’t get over how invigorated the children are,” chief Jeri Helfer said. “They are prepared to work. That is flawless to see in light of the fact that occasionally you can make a halfhearted effort in the event that you go to such a large number of camps. These three days have been awesome. The children are eager to be back in the rec center, and I anticipate seeing them play in the fall.”

Helfer has been moored in Licking County for quite a long time and furthermore has a solid presence in Muskingum County. Brooke (Fatheree) Bigrigg initially came to New Wave when she was a senior at John Glenn.

Since continuing on to Muskingum University, Bigrigg has been a mentor and educator for New Wave. She went through the week, showing the cutting edge prior to starting her last university season on the court.

“I experienced passionate feelings for the program with exactly how they ran things and how nearby they were. I adored the nature of players that were coming from neighborhood secondary schools,” said Bigrigg, who was joined at the camp by individual John Glenn graduate and Muskingum senior Erin Dickson.

(Instructing) is something new,” Bigrigg added. “I figured I would go into something totally unique. … It’s little specialized things that I never thought would have been significant, however when you get into secondary school and school, you view at those little methods as extremely effective.”

A modest bunch of young men went to the current week’s camp, and Steven Durr is the overseer of New Wave’s young men program. Helfer said no clubs East and South of the Columbus rural areas offer freedoms for young men.

New Wave has extended all through Southeast Ohio and into West Virginia, however the center players stay in Licking County. Ellis appreciates taking part in fostering the following rush of ability.

“The Licking County League is an extremely cutthroat class, and camps like this where everybody can meet up and play help,” Ellis said. “Individuals who have played in the (LCL) can keep on showing the very young ladies that will be what’s to come.”
