LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - UNLV volleyball will hold camps specializing in individual and team instruction. LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV volleyball program will host nine summer camps that begin June 11-13 and run through Aug. 1. The camps are specialized for either individual and/or team instruction.

Six of the nine camps are dedicated to students in grades nine through 12 and range from one day - Libero Camp (July 29) - to four days - All-Skills Overnight Camp (July 20-23). Two are set-aside for those between sixth and eighth grade, while one more is for those in third to sixth grade.

Four of the camps - All-Skills Day, Outside Hitter, Setter & Middle Hitter and Libero - will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with a lunch break worked into the day's schedule, while both of the Junior High versions are scheduled from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. The Little Rebels camp is afternoon hours only (4:00 pm to 6:30 pm).

The camping season kicks off with the Junior High Camp 1 on June 11-13. It's the only one that is provided by the program during the month of June. The remaining eight will take place in July starting with the All-Skills Day Camp July 6-8. The Team Camp will close down the summer session and it carries over into the first day of August.

UNLV's coaching staff will provide instruction and guidance for the camps. Cindy Fredrick, UNLV's head volleyball coach, has coached at the collegiate level for 28 years with the last four coming as the skipper of the Rebel program. The reigning Mountain West Coach of the Year has coached 45 all-conference performers as well as two conference players of the year and three All-Americans.

Mashallah Farokhmanesh and Russ Friedland will assist Fredrick in helping with teaching the campers. The former has been an assistant coach on Fredrick's coaching staffs for the past 28 seasons, while Friedland just completed his second year with the Rebels.
