Gopher Volleyball Coach and two-time Olympic head coach Hugh McCutcheon is holding his annual volleyball camps, July 7-18, at the University of Minnesota Fieldhouse. Both overnight and day camps are available through the camp sessions.

A variety of eight camps will be held, starting with the All Positions College Prep Camp, July 7-10. This camp is established for girls entering eighth-12th grade and is designed for experienced athletes who aspire to play volleyball collegiately. In its second year of existence is the Boys All Skills Camp, also July 7-10. The Boys camp ranges from sixth-12 grade and is designed for the male volleyball athlete who wants a comprehensive and competitive volleyball camp experience.

Events continue the next week with setting, attack and libero camps (July 11-12), followed by two all skills camps (July 13-14and 15-16). McCutcheon Volleyball Camps will also host a kindergarten-eighth grade Volley School (July 11-12 and July 15-16). The Get Set Team Camp and Coaches Clinic (July 17-18) is geared towards Varsity and Junior Varsity Teams as they prepare for their high school training competition season.

Last year, a total of 670 campers visited the University of Minnesota Field House. With up to 14 sport courts and net systems, the Field House accommodates all campers in one location. Overnight campers in our College Prep Camp and our Team Camps will stay in Territorial Residence Hall on the Super Block in the heart of the U of M campus.
