York Prep’s Varsity and Junior Varsity Girls’ Volleyball players started off the summer with intense conditioning, skill building, and team bonding at the Pre-Summer Volleyball Camp during the week of June 14. Coaches Barbara Hughes, Kim Logana, and Chris Durnford spent the first week of the summer holidays working with 26 of York’s Upper School volleyball players to help them develop a summer fitness program and to improve their volleyball skills.
In addition to volleyball drills and a rigorous weight training program at York’s facilities, the workouts included running in Central Park and beach volleyball alongside the Hudson River. The girls also met with a sports nutritionist during the camp to discuss how to make healthy and smart food choices.
The girls return to York on August 24 to start preparing for their fall volleyball season.
