SCC Volleyball Camp moved to July 20-23

Due to COVID-19, the Surry Community College Volleyball Camp has been pushed back two weeks to July 20-23 at the Surry Community College gym on the Dobson campus.

The camp, which will be held in two separate sessions, was originally slated for July 6-9 but was pushed back two weeks because of the pandemic.

“We moved it back thinking that maybe we would have a better chance of being able to host it if we pushed it back to the latter part of July. We are doing everything we can to be able to have it,” Surry Head Volleyball Coach Caleb Gilley said.

Gilley said the camp will be conducted in accordance with proper social distancing guidelines.

The first session, which will be held each day from 8-until-11 a.m., is for rising 1st-to-5th grades. The second session, Noon-to-3 p.m., is for rising 6th-to-8th grades. The camp is open to all individuals in the rising 1st to rising 8th grades with a cost of $50 ($40 for multiple campers in same family) per camper and includes a camp T-shirt.

Camp registrations will begin at 7:30 a.m. (Session I) and 11:30 a.m. (Session II). For more camp information or to request a camp brochure, please contact Gilley at (336) 408-3278 or gilleycr@surry.edu, or Athletic Director Mark Tucker at (336) 386-3217 or tuckerm@surry.edu.
