Faith started a boys volleyball program in 2014. Highlighting this year’s camp will be a special guest coach, Brittany Smith, head coach of the Wheaton College women’s volleyball team. Smith spent eight seasons as volleyball coach at Taylor University before taking over at Wheaton College in 2013, leading the Thunder to a 24-12 record and the Wheaton Invitational championship in her first year at the helm. In her time at Taylor, Brittany compiled a record of 240-94 and guided the Trojans to three consecutive appearances in the NAIA National Tournament along with five straight conference titles. She was named Mid-East Region Coach of the Year by the American Volleyball Coaches Association in 2010. 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.
