The Montana State University-Northern Volleyball program has been busy with its annual camps this summer, but things will continue to heat up this weekend, as the Skylights host several local squads for their annual team camp.
With the renovations still underway at the Armory Gymnasium, this year the camp will be held at the Havre Middle School. The team camp will run today and Saturday beginning each morning at 9 a.m. As of now, Havre, Poplar, Dutton Brady, North Star and Box Elder have teams registered to participate, and Chinook has two teams in the mix.
Most of the individuals participating this weekend should already have a good handle on the fundamentals. The majority of the athletes are varsity-caliber athletes, and the focus will be more on game play and situational volleyball. And getting plenty of reps, every team is guaranteed nearly 21 games over the course of two days.
Today the teams will have a day filled with pool play. Each team has a slew of talent, so teams should expect to be in the midst challenging games as they attempt to lock down a top seed for tournament play. Today’s pool play will be followed by Saturday’s double elimination tournament, also starting at 9 a.m.
The teams will get plenty of opportunities and playing time on the court, but if needed, coaches and players can still get a little extra work in. Huebsch and his camp staff will be available if coaches and teams want tips or extra work in any area of the game.
The annual MSU-N team camp will take place today and Saturday at the Havre Middle school gym, starting at 9 a.m. both days.
