Volleyball clinics offer a head start on season

Thompson Rivers University teamed up with a life-long volleyball athlete to host a volleyball clinic in Terrace last week.

Thompson Rivers University teamed up with a life-long volleyball athlete to host a volleyball clinic in Terrace this week.

Members of the Thompson Rivers WolfPack and a former Terrace resident, Jason Haldane, worked together to run the clinics, which ran at Thornhill Junior Secondary school Aug. 22- 25.

“We couldn’t be happier with the turnout,” Haldane said, of the 60 plus children who came to the camp in two daily sessions.

Haldane said the enthusiasm was high at the clinics, as kids had a lot of fun learning mostly developmental skills.

He estimates that about one-third of those attending were new to volleyball, and said that camps will be a great introduction to the sport for them.

For players on secondary school volleyball teams, the camps are also good leg-up for the upcoming season, Haldane continued.

A graduate of Caledonia Senior Secondary, Haldane has made a career out of playing volleyball professionally and currently plays on a professional club team in Turkey.

“I have gotten so much out of volleyball,” Haldane said, explaining its been great to pass back some of that knowledge to children in the community where he first discovered the sport.
