Are you ready for this?
This year will be the eighth consecutive year that Pakmen Volleyball will host summer camps. Boys and girls, ages 6 to 18, can come out to be active and have fun. Summer time is a time for fun and games, what better to do then play volleyball? Volleyball builds leadership and teamwork skills, which are not only needed in volleyball, but also in life. Pakmen is one of the most diverse volleyball clubs in Canada, and have also been accredited by the OVA (Ontario Volleyball Association) and Volleyball Canada as of January 31st 2014 (the only volleyball club in the GTA to receive this status).
Everyday in summer camp will be better than the day before. Just because this is a volleyball summer camp, it doesn’t mean that volleyball is all you play. Each morning the kids start with a warm up game; for example, octopus or tag. On the first few days of camp, Pakmen coaches split you into groups by skill level, do drills and play some games. Each day after that is the same but always better. They do warm up, play some volleyball (indoor and outdoor), do drills, play some more volleyball and then the half-day participants go home with Freezies.
Those participants who choose to stay for the full day, spend the rest of the time playing dodge ball, hockey, soccer, doing drama skits, watching videos and playing other fun games. But of course, the day always ends with some indoor volleyball, it is volleyball camp after all. Each year Pakmen coaches make a summer camp video that highlights the best parts of camp. Check it out on Pakmen’s YouTube channel.
In the summer especially, kids have a lot of free time. Every year kids stay home to play video games, hang with friends and do basically nothing. Pakmen fills this free time with fun and games. Volleyball is a cost effective way to keep your kids happy, active and occupied. It’s also a great place to make friends that share the same interests as you.
Pakmen knows that weekdays can be hard to get your children to and from camps. Weekend camps are available for the parents that are too busy to get their kids around. All summer camp programs are for boys and girls, ages 6 to 18.
You can expect nothing less than the best. Pakmen has well designed, quality programs that will have your kids leaving camp with a big smile. The children will be supervised by truly brilliant coaches. Participants treasure their coaches because of their volleyball skills, excellent teaching and great motivation. Coaches are NCCP certified and are university and college -volleyball players.
