Youth volleyball players who missed out on Abstract Volleyball’s sold-out high-performance volleyball camp in March will have a second chance to train with coach Jesse Knight with another camp scheduled for July 15-18 at the Thornhill Jr. gymnasium.

The camp is for athletes, both male and female, in Grade 7-12 who want professional training without the travel. Knight’s been a head coach in the Swedish Elite League, at the University of Calgary and as an assistant coach at UBC, St. Mary’s in the NCAA, and with Team Canada.

Terrace club coach Carmen Didier says the athletes who missed out on the camp the first time around because it was sold out “really missed out.”

“Everyone who gets a chance to participate in his camp will either develop new skills if they are young players, or refine existing skills if they are more experienced players,” she said.

Knight says his assistant coach will be Ali Sandholm, who played for Team Canada in 2005, 2006, and 2008, and who has just returned from playing pro in Europe. Depending on how many people sign up, he could bring in other former Team Canada members to coach, including Brooke Halvorsen, Claire Hanna or Maura Hayes.
