Web Lead

With the WolfPack volleyball camp starting on Aug. 15 at Prince Charles Secondary School, there is still room in all sessions.

This is the fifth summer the Thompson Rivers University men’s volleyball team will be running a camp in Creston, home to the best player in the WolfPack volleyball program, Gord Perrin, who played three years at TRU and was Canada West rookie of the year, all-star and all-Canadian. Perrin is currently with the Canadian senior national team and just recently signed his first professional contract in Turkey.

The WolfPack camp works on the fundamentals of the game with varsity coaches and players, and prior experience is not necessary. Camp runs Monday through Thursday and is $100, including a WolfPack T-shirt. To register, contact Mike Nelson at mikenelson@shaw.ca or Pat Hennelly at phennelly@tru.ca.

TRU has seen a lot of Creston players make Team BC and go on to play with Canadian Interuniversity Sport and the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association over the past 10 years. Creston has produced some excellent players like Alicia Perrin (Trinity Western University) Blake Giles (University of Calgary). TRU comes to towns like Creston to support the local players and coaches and develop the next generation of volleyball players.
