Three Sunraysia Academy of Sport athletes have been selected to attend the Australian Junior Volleyball Camp.
Brooke Freckleton, Jessica Killingbeck and Zac Hermans have all been invited to (and accepted) their positions at the upcoming JDP(Junior Mens Development Program) and JWDP(Junior Womenâ€™s Development Program) December Camps. For Brooke and Jessica this will be the first time they have been invited to attend the camp. For all athletes it will be an opportunity to showcase their impressive volleyball skills in front of some of Australiaâ€™s most experienced volleyball coaches.
The Boys camp (JDP) will be held in Bendigo from Dec 13-19 and will involve approximately 60 athletes and up to 20 coaches from around Australia, with athletes born in 1997/98.
The Girls camp (JWDP) will be held in Churchill from Dec 13-19 and will involve 55 athletes and up to 15 coaches from around Australia, with athletes born in 1998/99.
The Boys camp is indoor focussed only and will form a major part of the selection process for National Youth Squad (U/19) for involvement in 2014 international events, including the 10th Asian Youth Boyâ€™s Championships.
The Girls camp will involve a beach volleyball component for two days and then four days of indoor trainings. This camp will be the first official activity for the age group and will play a key role in the selection process for the National Youth Squad for involvement in 2014 international events for indoor volleyball, as well as playing a role in athlete progression through to the National Youth Beach Squad for 2014 international events and camps.
