Volleyball is known for its violent spikes and dominating blocks, but the fundamentals of passing and ball control are just as important to success on the court. That’s the message that Colorado Northwestern Community College volleyball coaches were stressing to Moffat County High School players at a volleyball skills camp which began Tuesday and continues today. “Volleyball is really renowned for hitting it as hard as you can and these great moments, but I think people forget in between all of those amazing attacks there’s really a lot of ball control that’s necessary to set up that attack,” said April Sanchez, CNCC assistant volleyball coach. “So we’re honing in on skills of passing and movement, and they’re doing a great job.” Sanchez, a 2006 graduate of MCHS, is leading the camp with CNCC head coach Richard Barker, who said they are also trying to teach the team out-of-system play, when a point doesn’t go as planned.
