The Perham summer volleyball program, led by Coach Dan Christenson, finished its 8th annual camp last week.

This summer's camp featured University of Minnesota-Morris Head Coach Chad Braegelmann. The camp was held at the Perham Area Community Center and was open to area girls entering grades four through 12.

"These camps have been great experiences for our hometown athletes," Christenson said.

Over the history of the camps, many names from Minnesota volleyball, as well as former Yellowjackets have come to Perham to instruct local players.

2010 - U of M, Morris Staff (Chad Braegelmann)

2009 - former UND head coach, Kari Peterson

2008 - Tammy Blake-Kath (Minnesota State University-Moorhead)

2007 - Tim Mosser (Concordia College, Moorhead)

2006 - Jane Passa (NDSCS- Wahpeton), Megan Wiebe (former Perham player)

2005 - Zaundra Bina (former NDSU head coach)

2004 - Donna Palivec (former Bemidji State head coach)

2003 - Bob Hattlestad (former Perham head coach), Pam Osterfeld (former Perham player)

"The satellite college camps come to us to keep player costs down. We will continue our summer camp series next year with another regional college coach and program," said Christenson.
