Volleyball season is about to get underway, and the University of Great Falls team is preparing themselves by hosting a summer camp for kids this week.
The boys and girls volleyball camp began Monday and will continue through Wednesday. About 50 kids ranging from kindergarten through eighth grade will participate. The kids will learn basic volleyball skills from Argos Head Coach Arunas Duda and some of his players. Sophomore outside hitter Tymerie Vinecelli is helping coach the kids, and she's happy to help out for her second time.
"Personally I feel super lucky that I get the opportunity to help other people and grow into players and become an individual themselves and being a part of that at such a young age is a blessing to do," Vinecelli said.
Duda added "I think the best part they get to make a connection with our players. Our players get to coach them and they get to learn from coaching kids to know how to be coached and all of those type of things. But it's great to make those type of connections so hopefully the kids come to our games and see what college volleyball is all about and what life at UGF is all about."
The Argos have their first practice Thursday before they hit the road to start the season. On August 18th, the team has its first match against Midland University as part of the Biola University Invite.
