Neligh-Oakdale and Elkhorn Valley volleyball players are learning together this week at a joint volleyball camp.
In order to prep their players for the fall volleyball season, Neligh-Oakdale coaches Hannah Hoefer, Jessica Eymann, and Tabatha Kerkman brought in Gold Medal Squared to teach their players “new age volleyball.”
The coaches decided to try something new after going to a coaching clinic in Texas, hosted by Gold Medal Squared. Coaches Nir and Courtney, of GMS, instructed the volleyball camp, which is set to go from Monday until Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Neligh-Oakdale gym.
Originally at a cost of about $200 per player, coaches and players were able to lower the cost to approximately $110 per player through fundraisers.
According to their website, Gold Medal Squared is a group of volleyball experts providing coaching clinics, volleyball camps and other coaching resources. Over 450 high school teams have won State Championships after the help of Gold Medal Squared. Some of the amazing talent behind Gold Medal Squared include three Olympic volleyball coaches.
