Volleyball Camp
by Connie Boyle

From July 6th to the 9th, we had a volleyball camp here on the Island. Because there were a number of players interested in improving their skills, I contacted Dan Fletcher. He coached at Inland Lakes for many years and his team was very successful. His team never lost to Pellston–which many people here who follow volleyball can certainly appreciate! His team went to the State Tournament, he had 4 All- State Players, and many other accomplishments. Dan runs summer camps for several teams in the area, and has been asked to out-of-state schools as well. He came to Beaver quite a few years ago to run a camp.

We had a dozen players, grades 8 - 12, attend the camp. All the girls worked hard and learned a lot. They all improved their individual skills and had a lot of fun. As their coach, I appreciate that all these girls gave up some of their summer time, had to arrange work schedules, and suffered through a lot of sore muscles! It was another example of what a good group I have. Wherever we travel, the spectators usually comment on the fact that “Beaver Island really came here to play!”

With the improved individual skills and a few “secret strategies” we learned this summer, next volleyball season promises to be another fun and exciting year. Go, Lady Islanders!
