Manny Johnson: Intro Blog to 2008 HP Youth Holiday Camp

Jan. 21, 2009, 4:50 p.m. (ET)

This was the second straight Holiday Camp I was able to work for USA Volleyball.  Neil Mason and I worked the camp last year along with help from Gary Mathews of USAV.  This winter, Neil and I were joined by Blaine Tendler and Abby Masters.  Tom Pingel of USAV was also in camp for a few days. 

Neil and I thought it would be a good idea to show athletes and other coaches what went on in camp.  The idea being that more athletes will want to be a part of the camp and that coaches around the country would be able to benefit from the things being done at camp.

This journal chronicles the myriad discussions about volleyball the coaches had, the drills we ran, the technical teachings, and some anecdotes from camp.  Hopefully people can read this and realize the tremendous benefit USA Holiday Camps offer.
