Off-Season: Volleyball Team Camps
During the summer, the volleyball program offers the opportunity to attend Team Camps as a team. All prospective athletes are invited to the University of Arizona Volleyball Team Camp; and a prospective Varsity/Junior Varsity players to the NAU Volleyball Team Camp in Flagstaff. These camps are open to Ironwood Ridge students only. If you need financial assistance for volleyball camps, please talk to Coach Lang.
TEAM CAMP EXPECTATIONS
All prospective student-athletes must have their Athletic Clearance (including a current Physical Examination Form) on file in the Athletic Office before participating.
All prospective athletes need to understand that they will be representing Ironwood Ridge High School and the Volleyball Program at these camps. The feedback received from the outside coaches in the past has always been very positive. Each year, we hear that the Ironwood Ridge Volleyball players work hard, listen to the coaches, and are on time. In short, we’ve always heard what great kids we have in this program! The IRVB expectations have always been the same: work hard, learn, have fun and represent your volleyball program!
Participation in the either of the team camps will not guarantee any prospective volleyball player a spot on Ironwood Ridge Volleyball Varsity roster in the Fall. The camp is open to prospective players, based on availability, provided they are currently participating in the off-season.
Report any and all injuries during camp to the coaching staff immediately.
