Hopewell Girls Volleyball Hosts Well Attended Youth Camp



For the last 30+ years, head coach Terry Borkovic has watched as Hopewell Girls Volleyball has not only enjoyed tremendous on-court success but also grow in popularity.

I guess that’s not surprising considering Hopewell has made the WPIAL Playoffs for 25 straight seasons.

Kids want to be apart of a successful program and we saw another example of that on Monday.

Coach Borkovic and his program hosted a Youth Volleyball Camp at Hopewell High School, which was attended by 50+ kids. That’s the largest turnout that Borkovic has witnessed since starting this.

Coach Borkovic tells HSN that Hopewell volleyball will be hosting two camps this week.

—Camp for kids in grade 6 thru 9 on Monday thru Friday.

—Mini camp for kids in grade 4 thru 5 on Thursday and Friday.

“We have 50 campers registered for the 6-9 camp,” Borkovic tells HSN. “We have 27 girls registered for the mini camp. The older girls camp session is our largest ever. This is the first ever mini camp. I am extremely pleased with the response.”

“We’ve never had a numbers issue with Hopewell volleyball. In fact, we’re getting over 30 girls regularly for our open gym sessions. We usually get around 24-27 girls in years past so obviously I’m pleased.”

With this being a youth camp for various age ranges, I asked Coach Borkovic what he had the kids do and hoped they would get out of it.

“Generally, we focus on teaching and developing fundamental volleyball skills,” said Borkovic. “My varsity players teach/coach the younger girls. They do a great job and I feel they enjoy bonding with the campers.”

”On today’s (Monday) session, we worked on ball control skills, forearm passing, and setting. We will progress through the week with more complex skills. Next week, we are starting our strength and conditioning program. Craig Biller and his staff at 5 Points Sports Performances will handle this program.”

Coach Borkovic says the objectives of this are injury prevention, getting quicker, adding strength, and muscular endurance,

Later this summer, the varsity team will attend a 3-day tournament/camp at Indiana High School (July 30/August 1).

”The girls are excited for the upcoming season,” said Borkovic. “They will be busy!”
