Is your child new to basketball or volleyball or a longtime participant who wants to take their skills to the next level?

Faith Christian Academy's summer volleyball and basketball camps are ready to help kids learn and grow in an exciting and encouraging environment.

The fifth annual FCA volleyball camp runs from 4 to 6 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 4, through Thursday, Aug. 7. The camp is open for girls and boys entering fourth to eighth grade this fall at Fox Valley-area schools.

Highlighting this year's camp will be a special guest coach Brittany Smith. She is head coach of the Wheaton College women's volleyball team. She will share her vast knowledge of volleyball at the camp. Campers will be divided into groups by skill and playing level, so experienced players will receive more sophisticated skill training geared to their needs while younger players will be taught the basics of the sport.

The 15th annual FCA basketball camp takes place from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11, through Thursday, Aug. 14. The camp is for boys and girls entering third to eighth grade at Fox Valley-area schools.

Three veteran guest coaches will share their wisdom: IHSA Hall of Fame coach Don Davidson, longtime AAU and collegiate coach and Midwest Sports Academy Founder-CEO Jim Cook and 31-year Iowa high school coach Mike Hurn. Combined, these three coaches have 99 years of basketball coaching experience between them. They will teach players how to improve as shooters, ballhandlers, defenders, rebounders and, most importantly, as people.

Each camp costs $50, one of the best deals in the area. You can register your child for one or both camps by filling out and turning in the signup form found in FCA's summer camp brochure to the school office. You can find and download the brochure registration form at

Registration has begun and will be capped for both camps, so open spots are on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign up today.
